The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. Active for over six decades, they are one of the most popular and enduring bands of the rock era. In the early 1960s, the band pioneered the gritty, rhythmically driven sound that came to define hard rock. Their first stable line-up consisted of vocalist Mick Jagger, multi-instrumentalist Brian Jones, guitarist Keith Richards, bassist Bill Wyman, and drummer Charlie Watts.

Had his moment of doubt and pain

Time can tear down a building or destroy a woman's face
Hours are like diamonds, don't let them waste

Time waits for no one, and he won't wait for me

You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes
Well, you might find
You get what you need

Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game
Sympathy for the Devil, Album: Beggars Banquet
