It seems hard to believe that the Rolling Stones have been around since the early sixties but the band show no signs of slowing down, even after a career that has spanned over 50 years. 'Rock of Ages' charts the amazing story of what is arguably the greatest rock band in the world. The programme chronicles their first ever gig at the Marquee Club on the 12th of July, 1962, the line-up changes, the famous "rivalry" between the Stones and the Beatles, the meteoric rise to fame and notoriety of the group as well as all the personal drama the band members themselves had to go through. From the earliest beginnings, when manager Andrew Olden was eager to present the Stones to the world as the antithesis of the family-friendly Beatles, trouble followed the band wherever it went.There were numerous drug busts, in-fighting within the members of the group and the offstage antics with groupies leading to the newspaper headline: "Would you let your sister go with the Rolling Stones?". Brian Jones, one of the founders of the group, suffering from drug addiction began to feel displaced and a decision was made to remove him from the band. Sadly Jones not long after this event was later found dead in his swimming pool in Sussex on 3rd July 1969. However since then The Stones, as they are affectionately known by fans around the world, have gone from strength to strength. In recent years, the Stones have concentrated on their live shows, still giving 100%. Jagger jokes that there aren't so many pairs of women's underpants thrown on stage these days; "more Y-fronts" he laughs. But that hasn't curbed their enthusiasm for touring, and while they enjoy playing live music, the Rolling Stones will keep on rolling,for years to come. The programme includes interviews with the band members.
