The Rolling Stones Turning 50: Finally Getting Satisfaction?

It’s been 50 years since the Rolling Stones’ first public performance. Will Mick and the rest of the band ever get satisfaction?

By: Ringo Bones

 Back in July 11, 2012, the Rolling Stones “quietly” celebrated the 50th Anniversary of their first ever public performance. Time flies when your having fun as one of the world’s most iconic rock stars indeed as it was back in July 11, 1962 where Mick Jagger and the rest of the band first ever major gig at the Marquee Club in London. Strange how Mick Jagger used to say in press interviews during the bands heyday, around 1968 to 1972, that he would rather die than sing Satisfaction at 40. 

Well, 1983 came and went and Mick Jagger still manage to perform the bands iconic signature track – Satisfaction – throughout their gigs during the 1980s like he’s forever in his prime. And this includes their Bridges to Babylon tour during the latter half of the 1990s. If this won’t give Mick and the band the “Satisfaction” they desperately seek, I don’t know what will.
