Mini Bio (1)

The Rolling Stones are the legendary British rock band known for many popular hits, such as Paint it Black, Lady Jane, Ruby Tuesday, and (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction. Almost everyone who attended their shows is quick to comment on their ability to start you up and shake your hips. Their song “Satisfaction” (1965) was composed by Keith Richards in his sleep, and with the addition of provocative lyrics by Mick Jagger it became the greatest hit and their calling card on each and every show.

In 1966, after The Beatles stopped giving live performances, The Rolling Stones took over as the unofficial “biggest touring band in the world” for the next few years. During 1966-1969 they toured the world, and constantly updated their song-list with many great hits like “Lets Spend the night together” (1967), “Sympathy for the Devil” (1968) and “Honky tonk woman” (1969). The incredible international success of the Stones came with a sad side, caused by Brian’s drug and alcohol abuse that impaired his speech and appearance, so the band-mates had to replace him. In July 1969, Brian Jones died of drowning in his swimming pool while having signs of drug overdose. Upon Richards’s and Jagger’s approval, guitarist Mick Taylor took Brian’s place. Brian’s death at age 27 made him one of the first members of the infamous “27 Club” of rock stars who died at that age. Although Brian’s estrangement from his band-mates, and his numerous arrests were caused by his personal problems with drugs, both Richards and Jagger were blamed at the time for Brian’s death. The loss of one of their founding members was a painful moment for the Stones. However, at the end of the 1960s their creativity reached the new highs. Their albums “Beggars Banquet” (1968) and “Sticky Fingers” (1971) were among the most popular albums they ever made, having such hits as “Wild Horses” and “Brown Sugar.”

During the 1970s The Rolling Stones remained the biggest band in the world, albeit they were rivaled by the Led Zeppelin. The Stones made thousands of live performances and multi-million record sales with hits like “Angie” (1973), “It’s Only Rock and Roll” (1974), “Hot Stuff” (1976) and “Respectable” (1978). At that time both Keith Richards and Mick Jagger had individual ambitions, and applied their untamed creativity in various projects outside the Stones. Keith released his own single. In 1974 Ron Wood had replaced Mick Taylor on guitar and Keith and Ron both played lead guitars. During the decade Keith Richards had a family crisis on his hands, and suffered through emotional pain and drug abuse, albeit it didn’t stop him from being himself. In 1980 the group released “Emotional Rescue” which Keith Richards didn’t care for, and the group didn’t even tour to promote the album. In 1981 with the release of ‘Tattoo You’, the group went on a major world tour filling stadiums in the US and in Europe. In 1983 the Stones recorded the album “Undercover” at the Compass Point in Nassau and during this time Mick and Keith were having arguments over rights of the group. After having created tens of albums and over a hundred popular songs together, their legendary song-writing partnership was undergoing the most painful test: the bitter rivalry between two enormously talented and equally ambitious superstars.

Mick Jagger is the heart of “The Stones” and Keith Richards – the soul. The two had carried on their early image of unkempt youth, had survived ups and downs in their careers and personal lives, and remained the core of the band since they shared a flat with the late Brian Jones in London in 1962. Two other remaining members are drummer Charlie Watts and guitarist Ron Wood. “The Stones” were part of the “British Invasion” in international culture during the 1960s, and has been extremely popular and famous for their 60s craze, hot stuff and sex drive. Since the 1970s they remained one of the biggest entertainment acts touring the world with a retinue of jet-set hangers-on. Their inimitable shows, no matter the best, or the worst, has been played with fire and emotion, giving their audiences the kind of music they do best – it’s only rock’n roll.

Mick Jagger dropped out of college and his every move on-stage and off-stage seemed to signal a challenge to “respectable” standards. He never received a formal musical education, and even could not read music. However, he worked hard and emerged as the lead singer and songwriter in partnership with Richards, following the example of John Lennon and Paul McCartney‘s songwriting for The Beatles. Outside of the Rolling Stones, Jagger released solo albums with his original songs, as well as his versions of such hits as ‘Use Me’ by songwriter Bill Withers. Jagger also starred in several films, such as Freejack(1992), Bent (1997), and The Man from Elysian Fields (2001). Mick Jagger fathered seven children from four women, donated to numerous school and charities, and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II at the Buckingham Palace in 2003.

Keith Richards, was a schoolmate of Mick Jagger since the primary school. In 1960 they contemplated starting up a band together. Since the formation of the Rolling Stones in 1962, Richards has been the principal songwriting partner with Jagger, and most of the songs on all Rolling Stones albums are credited to Jagger/Richards. Outside of the Rolling Stones, Richards toured with The New Barbarians, and also was the front-man of the X-pensive Winos in the 1980s. Besides his music career, Richards made a cameo appearance as the father of Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End(2007) filmed by his friend, director Gore Verbinski.

Other members of The Rolling Stones has been also enjoying their individual careers outside of the band. Multi-instrumentalist Ronnie Wood collaborated with such performers as Prince, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, and Aretha Franklin, among others. His collaboration with Rod Stewart resulted in a hit album. Wood is also an accomplished artist who sold about $10 million worth of his artworks. Drummer Charlie Watts, who has been ever faithful to his one and only wife, Shirley, is known for his consistency in refusing sexual favors from groupies. He is also a jazz band-leader, and commercial artist, who had solo shows and successfully auctioned his artworks.

The Rolling Stones have released 55 albums of original work and compilations, and sold over 200 million records word-wide during their career spanning over 45 years. “The Stones” played in all kinds of spaces from small clubs to big stadium arenas. In 2007 they even rocked the Tsar’s Winter Palace with fifty thousand fans in St. Petersburg, Russia, where the communist revolution took place. They gave more large-scale shows internationally than any other existing band in the world, culminating in their 2005-2007 “A Bigger Band” tour with 147 concerts, the highest grossing tour of all time with $559 million earned.

Come on, Stones, give us more of your respectable shows, get us rocking, we can make it if we try.

Mini Bio (1)

The Rolling Stones adalah band rock legendaris asal Inggris yang terkenal karena banyak hits populer, seperti Paint it Black, Lady Jane, Ruby Tuesday, dan (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction. Hampir semua orang yang menghadiri acara mereka cepat berkomentar tentang kemampuan mereka untuk memulai dan menggoyang pinggul Anda. Lagu mereka “Satisfaction” (1965) disusun oleh Keith Richards dalam tidurnya, dan dengan penambahan lirik provokatif oleh Mick Jagger menjadi hit terbesar dan kartu panggilan mereka pada setiap pertunjukan.

Pada tahun 1966, setelah The Beatles berhenti memberikan pertunjukan langsung, The Rolling Stonesmengambil alih sebagai “band touring terbesar” di dunia “untuk beberapa tahun ke depan. Selama 1966-1969 mereka berkeliling dunia, dan secara konstan memperbarui daftar lagu mereka dengan banyak hits hebat seperti “Lets Spend the night together” (1967), “Sympathy for the Devil” (1968) dan “Honky tonk woman” (1969) . Keberhasilan luar biasa Stones internasional datang dengan sisi yang menyedihkan, yang disebabkan oleh penyalahgunaan narkoba dan alkohol Brian yang mengganggu pidato dan penampilannya, sehingga rekan band harus menggantikannya. Pada bulan Juli 1969, Brian Jones meninggal karena tenggelam di kolam renangnya sementara ada tanda-tanda overdosis obat. Atas persetujuan Richards dan Jagger, gitaris Mick Taylormengambil tempat Brian. Kematian Brian pada usia 27 membuatnya menjadi salah satu anggota pertama dari “27 Klub” bintang rock terkenal yang meninggal pada usia itu. Meskipun kerenggangan Brian dari teman-teman bandnya, dan banyak penangkapannya disebabkan oleh masalah pribadinya dengan narkoba, baik Richards dan Jagger disalahkan pada saat kematian Brian. Hilangnya salah satu anggota pendiri mereka adalah momen yang menyakitkan bagi Stones. Namun, pada akhir 1960-an kreativitas mereka mencapai puncak baru. Album mereka “Beggars Banquet” (1968) dan “Sticky Fingers” (1971) adalah salah satu album paling populer yang pernah mereka buat, memiliki hits seperti “Wild Horses” dan “Brown Sugar.”

Selama 1970-an The Rolling Stones tetap menjadi band terbesar di dunia,. The Stones membuat ribuan pertunjukan langsung dan multi-juta rekor penjualan dengan hits seperti “Angie” (1973), “It’s Only Rock and Roll” (1974), “Hot Stuff” (1976) dan “Respectable” (1978). Pada waktu itu, kedua Keith Richards dan Mick Jagger memiliki ambisi individu, dan menerapkan kreativitas liar mereka dalam berbagai proyek di luar Stones. Keith merilis singelnya sendiri. Pada 1974 Ron Wood menggantikan Mick Taylor dengan gitar dan Keith dan Ron memainkan gitar utama. Selama dekade Keith Richards mengalami krisis keluarga di tangannya, dan menderita karena sakit emosional dan penyalahgunaan narkoba, meskipun itu tidak menghentikannya dari menjadi dirinya sendiri. Pada tahun 1980, grup ini merilis “Emotional Rescue” yang tidak disukai oleh Keith Richards, dan grup tersebut bahkan tidak tur untuk mempromosikan album. Pada tahun 1981 dengan merilis ‘Tattoo You’, grup ini melanjutkan tur pengisian dunia di Amerika Serikat dan Eropa. Pada tahun 1983 Stones merekam album “Undercover” di Compass Point di Nassau dan selama waktu ini Mick dan Keith sedang berdebat tentang hak-hak kelompok. Setelah membuat puluhan album dan lebih dari seratus lagu populer bersama-sama, kemitraan penulisan lagu legendaris mereka menjalani tes yang paling menyakitkan: persaingan sengit antara dua superstar yang sangat berbakat dan sama-sama ambisius.

Mick Jagger adalah jantung dari “The Stones” dan Keith Richards – jiwa. Keduanya telah membawa pada citra awal mereka dari pemuda yang tidak terawat, telah bertahan hidup naik dan turun dalam karir dan kehidupan pribadi mereka, dan tetap menjadi inti dari band karena mereka berbagi flat dengan almarhum Brian Jones di London pada tahun 1962. Dua anggota lainnya yang tersisa adalah drummer Charlie Watts dan gitaris Ron Wood. “The Stones” adalah bagian dari “British Invasion” dalam budaya internasional selama tahun 1960-an, dan telah sangat populer dan terkenal karena kegemaran mereka, hal-hal panas dan dorongan seksual. Sejak tahun 1970-an, mereka tetap menjadi salah satu acara hiburan terbesar yang berkeliling dunia dengan pengiring-penggantung jet-set. Pertunjukan mereka yang tak ada bandingannya, tidak peduli yang terbaik, atau yang terburuk, telah dimainkan dengan api dan emosi,

Mick Jagger berhenti kuliah dan setiap langkahnya di panggung dan di luar panggung sepertinya menandakan tantangan untuk standar yang “terhormat”. Dia tidak pernah menerima pendidikan musik formal, dan bahkan tidak bisa membaca musik. Namun, ia bekerja keras dan muncul sebagai penyanyi utama dan penulis lagu dalam kemitraan dengan Richards, mengikuti contoh penulisan lagu John Lennon dan Paul McCartney untuk The Beatles . Di luar Rolling Stones, Jagger merilis album solo dengan lagu-lagu aslinya, serta versinya dari hits seperti ‘Use Me’ oleh penulis lagu Bill Withers . Jagger juga membintangi beberapa film, seperti Freejack (1992), Bent (1997), danThe Man from Elysian Fields (2001). Mick Jagger mewarisi tujuh anak dari empat wanita, disumbangkan ke banyak sekolah dan amal, dan diberi gelar oleh Ratu Elizabeth II di Istana Buckingham pada tahun 2003.

Keith Richards , adalah teman sekolah Mick Jagger sejak sekolah dasar. Pada tahun 1960 mereka berpikir untuk memulai sebuah band bersama. Sejak pembentukan Rolling Stones pada tahun 1962, Richards telah menjadi mitra penulisan lagu utama dengan Jagger, dan sebagian besar lagu-lagu di semua album Rolling Stones dikreditkan ke Jagger / Richards. Di luar Rolling Stones, Richards melakukan tur bersama The New Barbarians, dan juga front-man dari X-termos di tahun 1980-an. Selain karir musiknya, Richards tampil sebagai ayah Jack SparrowPirates of the Caribbean: Di Akhir Dunia (2007) difilmkan oleh temannya, sutradara Gore Verbinski .

Anggota lain dari The Rolling Stones juga menikmati karir individu mereka di luar band. Ronnie Wood yang multi-instrumentalis berkolaborasi dengan artis-artis seperti Pangeran, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, dan Aretha Franklin, antara lain. Kolaborasinya dengan Rod Stewart menghasilkan album hit. Kayu juga merupakan seniman ulung yang menjual sekitar $ 10 juta dari karya seninya. Drummer Charlie Watts, yang pernah setia pada satu-satunya istrinya, Shirley, dikenal karena konsistensinya dalam menolak bantuan seksual dari groupies. Dia juga seorang pemimpin band jazz, dan artis komersial, yang memiliki pertunjukan solo dan berhasil melelang karya seninya.

The Rolling Stones telah merilis 55 album karya asli dan kompilasi, dan menjual lebih dari 200 juta rekaman kata-lebar selama karir mereka yang mencakup lebih dari 45 tahun. “The Stones” dimainkan di semua jenis ruang dari klub kecil hingga arena stadion besar. Pada 2007 mereka bahkan mengguncang Istana Musim Dingin Tsar dengan lima puluh ribu penggemar di St. Petersburg, Rusia, tempat revolusi komunis terjadi. Mereka memberikan lebih banyak pertunjukan berskala internasional daripada band lain yang ada di dunia, yang berpuncak pada tur “A Bigger Band” 2005-2007 mereka dengan 147 konser, tur terlaris sepanjang masa dengan $ 559 juta yang diperoleh.

Ayolah, Stones, beri kami lebih banyak acara terhormat Anda, buat kami goyang, kami dapat membuatnya jika kami mencoba.
