“It‟s Only Rock „N‟ Roll…
At the core of all rock and roll is the notion that people can do what they want to, when they want to, and how they want to, and the rest of the world be damned. More than any other rock act, the Rolling Stones epitomize this idea in their music, look, attitude, and behavior. They have followed this road, and get away with it. In the process, they are undoubtedly the most successful and influential band of all time. Dubbed as ”The Greatest Rock-N-Roll Band in the World!,” their 40-year career of hit records, classic songs, monster live spectacles has consistently reinforced that title time and time again.
