The Rolling Stones released their first album in the U.K. in April 1964. Produced by Andrew Loog Oldham, the album is a raucous, energetic set of mostly cover songs. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman, and Charlie Watts, along with Ian Stewart, show off their American influences in songs by Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Rufus Thomas and even Marvin Gaye.
This event is FREE and RSVPs are not required. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
In conjunction with its newest featured exhibit, Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has announced a summer series of free Rock and Roll Night School sessions, each of which will spotlight a classic Rolling Stones album. Album spotlights will include The Rolling Stones (1964), Beggar’s Banquet (1968), and Some Girls (1978). An additional Fan’s Choice program will be featured, where fans will have a chance to vote online for the album spotlight they would like to see. This series will kick off on Wednesday June 19, with the remaining programs to be held in July, August and September.
