Rare Photos of the Rolling Stones’ 50 Years in Rock History

Sometimes it’s hard to believe The Rolling Stones have been around for more than half a century, but given their iconic je ne sais quoi, it’s really not that surprising. While The Beatles redefined the modern rock ‘n’ roll band, The Stones’ early Brian Jones-era lineup took the meaning of “rock band” to an entirely new level, at which a group’s image is just as important as its music. And not only do the Rolling Stones display amazing staying power, they have a knack for keeping up with the times, too (there’s an official Rolling Stones app, for Chrissake). To help celebrate the quintessential rock band’s impressive history, Hollywood’s new art spot PROJECT Gallery brings us 50 Years of The Rolling Stones: A Rock and Roll Retrospective. The show features fantastic photographs that go far beyond the stage and into the private planes, kitchens, and backyards of the band members for a rare glimpse into the intimate day-to-day lives of the world’s original rock stars. Click through for a preview.
