The Rolling Stones are an English rock band, formed in 1962 in London when multi-instrumentalist Brian Jones and pianist Ian Stewart were joined by vocalist Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards. Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early lineup. Stewart, deemed unsuitable as a teen idol, was removed from the official lineup in 1963 but continued as the band's road manager and occasional keyboardist until his death in 1985. After signing to Decca Records in 1963, the spelling of their name changed from "the Rollin' Stones" to "the Rolling Stones." Details siehe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolling_Stones
The Rolling Stones were already being written off as dinosaurs by 1978. They beame the first rock group to embrace disco and have huge commercial success with it while retaining their core sound. "Miss You" had a definite disco snap to it, but it was entrenched in the R&B plus the bluesy harmonica hook made it accessible to just about everyone. Rock, disco, rock disco....whatever. They reinvented themselves and were influential again.
