This Day in History July 12… 歷史上的今天7月12日

The Rolling Stones have had one of the longest careers of any band in music history. Hit songs like Brown Sugar and You Can't Always Get What You Want are still loved today. The Rolling Stones formed in London in 1962. Their first concert was at the Marquee Club on this date in 1962. At that time, they played Chicago blues and covered songs by Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley. They were part of a very important time in music history, which also included other influential bands like The Beatles and The Who.

在音樂史上,滾石合 唱團是最歷久不衰的樂團之ㄧ。暢銷曲像是《Brown Sugar》和《You Can't Always Get What You Want》至今仍為人喜愛。滾石合唱團於1962年在倫敦成軍,1962年的今日在天幕俱樂部舉行他們的第一場演出。當時他們表演芝加哥藍調並翻唱查克. 貝瑞和包.德迪利的歌曲。在音樂史上,滾石合唱團是非常重要的一段音樂時期,當時也包含了其他影響甚遠的樂團,如披頭四和誰合唱團。
