WHAT HAPPENED IN LONDON 50 YEARS AGO?

They can’t seem to figure out how best to celebrate their 50th anniversary, but yesterday (July 11) the Rolling Stones were able to agree on at least one thing: It was time to return to the site of their first gig and take a picture to mark the occasion.

The band lined up outside the Marquee Club London, where they played their first show on July 12, 1962, and posed for this shot. Of course, the lineup has changed substantially since then — Brian Jones, Dick Taylor, Ian Stewart, and Mick Avory were all with the band for that first gig — but it’s still a cool way to celebrate a unique milestone.
