Rolling Stones back on tour 2 months after death of Jagger's girlfriend, Tue May 27, 2014 On April 16, 1964 -- 50 years ago -- the Rolling Stones released their first album in Britain, simply titled "The Rolling Stones." (It was released in America six weeks later.) That album would be the first of more than 25 studio releases, several live recordings, and a number of compilations. Mick Jagger has been fronting the Rolling Stones since the band formed in London in 1962. "I'll never tour when I'm 50," he said when he was 29. But he turned 70 last year after the band wrapped up its 50th anniversary tour.
