The Rolling Stones Biography

Rolling Stones have lasted longer than any other band!

The Rolling Stones are an English band whose blues, rhythm and blues and rock & roll-infused music became popular during the British Invasion in the early 1960s.

Incredibly the band has stuck together ever since and still tour and record.

Coming around at the same time as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Cream and The Kinks, The Rolling Stones have outlived them all and like no other band lived up to the proper level of English Rock And Roll lifestyle.

Approaching 50 years as a band, The Rolling Stones have gathered a back catalog of hits such as: Start Me Up, Satisfaction, Wild Horses, Angie, Jumpin’ Jack Flash and Honky Tonk Women.

Angie was written three years before Hotel California!

Angie is a single by The Rolling Stones from their 1973 album Goats Head Soup.

Not the most obvious Rolling Stones track, Angie is one of those tracks that everybody know without knowing it. This makes it an excellent choice for the set list.

If you think it sounds a bit like Hotel California by The Eagles, think again, Hotel California was released three years after Angie.

Reaching #1 in America and #5 in the UK, Angie was the biggest success off Goats Head Soup.

Who’s Angie?

Some say Angie is a reference to Mick Jagger’s affair with David Bowie‘s girlfriend Angela but Mick has denied this on several occasions.

Mick instead referring to Keith, who actually wrote the song.

Keith says he can clearly remember that it had something to do with his daughter who’s also named Angela.

Many are the children of the 70s who have been named after this classic Rolling Stones ballad.
