The #RollingStones In #London Walk: 14 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…



33/45.             Sticky Fingers (Album 1971)

The perfect fusion of country rock and blues. Featuring the extraordinary Sister Morphine 9why does that tracks never make it onto the Greatest Hits albums?). It all kicks off with Brown Sugar, Charlie bowling us along on the floor toms behind Jagger's most open, most joyful vocal performance of them all. There's even country music in Dead Flowers. And Wild Horses still stops me dead in my tracks.








A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
