50 years ago this week (1962), a nervous band called the Rolling Stones played their first gig to a bemused crowd of jazz fans in the basement club called the Marquee. Apparently, the audience took some time to warm up to the Stones' 50 minute blast of American rhythm and blues.
"I played music practically my entire life. But the first time I ever really played music was with John and Robby and Jim…That’s where it happened. It was an epiphany, a moment of profound clarity.” – Ray Manzarek
