Once again, just like many of the bands in this list, Rolling Stones started between two school friends – Keith Richards and Mick Jagger. Friends since childhood were separated in 1950, when Jagger moved with his family to Wilmington, Kent. He met Richards 11 years later in Dartford railway station, Jagger was carrying The Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records that revealed the friends shared great interest in music. Soon after this encounter, their musical career together has started.
