Charlie Watts, on the Stones’ 50th anniversary (2012):
“The anniversary starts next month but it goes into next year because Bill Wyman and I joined on January 2, 1963 (sic), I think it was, but the Stones actually played in the Marquee on July 12 1962. Alexis Korner’s band, of which I was the drummer, we did a radio broadcast that day and I remember coming from Broadcasting House and going down to the Marquee, and standing in the doorway looking at Brian Jones, doing his Elmore James stuff with the slide guitar. I don’t know about a new tour, we haven’t got that far.”
