Stones' co founder Brian Jones came up with band's name

   May 1, 10:36 am

London, May 1 (ANI): The Rolling Stones got their name after the band's former member and co founder Brian Jones suggested that they name themselves after the Muddy Waters' record 'Rollin' Stone'.

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards' shared love of rock 'n' roll and blues led them in April 1962 to a West London jazz club where they first met Jones, also 19, and suggested forming a band with him.

"Our band can be summed up in two words - Brian Jones," the Daily Mail quoted him as telling the Jazz News magazine at that time.

They signed their first contract with manager Andrew Loog Oldham in April 1963. (ANI)
