On the 12th July 1962, The Rolling Stones played their first gig, at The Marquee Club in London.
Stones guitarist Keith Richards has now hinted that there may be inside talk of a 50th anniversary show in 2012.
The 67-year-old rock legend has suggested that he doesn't want The Stones' legacy to fizzle out slowly:
“This is what we have to ask each other: Do we want to go out in a blaze of glory?” adding “We can, if Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts feel like I do, that we can still turn people on… We don’t have to prove nothing anymore. I just love playing, and I miss the crowd.
“The idea is there. We kind of know we should do it, but nobody`s put their finger on the moment yet”.
This all comes at a time when there may still be lingering hostility between Richards and Mick Jagger. The two have been throwing their toys out of the pram in full view of the press and the public, following certain revelations concerning Jagger in Richards' autobiography, Life.
“Mick pouted a bit, as is his wont. I told him, ‘It’s water under the bridge. I want to talk about the future. We’re larger than a little bitching.’ “It’s only rock ‘n’ roll.’ I love working with Mick. Maybe it's that friction that makes it work, that bit of sand in the oyster that makes the pearl,” commented Richards.
So perhaps a reunion is on the cards… again, but as always we'll have to wait and see what Mick says first.
