Founded in 1962 the Rolling Stones are one of the most famous rock groups in the world.
Leading the British Invasion of bands that became popular in the US in the 60s, The Rolling Stones are stage legends embodying the "sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll" lifestyle.
Especially during the late 1960s, no other band came to embody the image of the hedonistic rock band more than the Stones. Groupies and heavy drug use were par for the course.
Even today, they keep on rolling: The Stones are still touring, 60 years after the band played their first-ever gig, at London's Marquee Club on July 12, 1962. The idea of a farewell tour popped up a few times, but they kept on rocking. Despite their age, they never failed to put on spectacular shows.
This Arts Unveiled episode dives into the Stones' Cosmos and digs deeper into how the Rolling Stones became so legendary. We have spoken to fans, music journalist Ernst Hofacker and documentary filmmaker Clare Tavernor and dug up some interviews from our archive to understand what makes the Stones timeless legends.
