— Days Without Shea —

July 12, 1962 - The Rollin' Stones play their first gig at the Marquee Club, with a lineup of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Ian Stewart (piano), Dick Taylor (bass), Tony Chapman (drums).

The Stones would finally break through in 1963, thanks in part to the single "I wanna be your man," authored for them by Lennon and McCartney. Of course, the Beatles would play Shea Stadium in 1965 and 1966, followed by the Stones a short twenty-three years later. More on that in the Shea Rocks section.

Happy 48th birthday, Stones!

Labor of love, I suspect for you.
