|The Rolling Stones are the most successful rockband of the world beside the Beatles. The group was formed by Mick Jagger (vocals), Keith Richards (guitar), Brian Jones (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums) in the summer of 1962. The musicians named called themselves after the song Rollin' Stone Blues from their idol Muddy Waters. They came to the top of the charts with the song called I can get no satisfaction in May 1965.|
Through their aggresive sound they were well-known as juvenile rebels soon. At the student movement 1968 they, however, dissociated themselves from the direct force. Brian Jones drowned after a drug-trip in the pool of his estate in June 1969. Mick Taylor substituted him as a guitarist. Mick Taylor left the band by the end of 1975. He was replaced by Ron Wood. Finally in March 1993 Bill Wyman left the band.
Also today the Rolling Stones are still popular. The portraits of the musicians on the Austrian stamps come from concerts in Austria. The first time for an Austrian stamp not the term Österreich is visible as national designation on the stamps, it is Austria. The format of the block of 10 x 10 cm is adapted to the format of a CD cover.
