The #RollingStones In #London Walk: 45 Days to Go!


NEW! The Rolling Stones in London Walking Tour launches on Thursday 5th May 2016!



Curated & guided by the team that brought you the Rock'n'Roll London Walk, we'll be prowling in the blueswailing, drug-busting, establishment-baiting footsteps of the savage young Stones in their 60's pomp – from the studios where they created to the shebeens where they, er, socialised – this walk provides the ideal "bonus tracks" to Exhibitionism, the blockbusting Stones retrospective at the Saatchi Gallery.

Meet at Tottenham Court Road station Thursdays at 2:30p.m. STARTS THURSDAY 5TH MAY 2016.


Daily Constitutional Editor & Rock'n'Roll London guide Adam Scott-Goulding writes… As a countdown to the Rolling Stones in London Walk I've picked 45 moments – tracks, busts, incidents, quotes – from the greatest story in Rock'n'Roll. These are the moments that made the legend…


1/45.            "We piss anywhere, man." 1965


Mick Jagger’s retort to petrol pump attendant who refused to let the Stones use his garage rest rooms. The Stones proceeded to urinate against the wall of the garage forecourt in the Romford Road. The police were called and the offending Stones were fined £5 each. The incident set  the swaggering, gloriously arrogant tone for the next 20 or so years.


Here's how the incident was reported in the Newham Recorder…




Street Fighting Men: The Rolling Stones in London Walking Tour begins on Thursday 5th May 2016 meeting at Tottenham Court Road Station.
