If there’s one rock and roll band that has endured for a long time, one of them has to be The Rolling Stones. Since 1962, this band has been performing their music all over the world and the members have shown that age will not stop them from doing what they love most.
Even in their senior years, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts still have the energy to rock and roll all for their loyal fans. For their 50th year, the band started going on tour in November 2012 for the first time in five years. They performed in London and the U.S. which were all highly successful as tickets were sold out in a very short time.
To celebrate their golden jubilee, you can check out some cool postcards on the HowtheStonesroll website.
The graphics are a representation of the band’s journey from the time they first performed at the Marquee Club to their 50th anniversary concerts at the O2 arena in London. Snippets of information about the graphics are also provided making it a very informative postcard worth sharing with music lovers.
Whether you’re a fan of the Rolling Stones or not, you are free to share the postcards on your favorite social media or your blog.
