TODAY IN ROLLING STONES’ HISTORY: February 1

Early February 1959: Brian gets his first guitar (a Spanish acoustic one) as his 17th-birthday present.
From Greg Prevost’s ‘Rolling Stones Gear’ book:
“Soon after his return, in late 1959 and early 1960, Brian started playing in local jazz bands, including John Keen’s Trad Band, Jock Henderson’s Dixielanders, and Bill Nile’s Delta Jazzmen. He remembered: ‘I quite honestly didn’t feel much of an urge to do anything else except play music. I thought about different jobs and rejected them: I knew I’d be bored stiff.” Although he was playing alto sax with these trad jazz bands, he became increasingly interested in playing and mastering the guitar. He continued using his very primitive Spanish guitar, but later upgraded to an acoustic Hofner Committee.”


Early February 1962: After working in advertising in Denmark, Charlie return to England and joins Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated.


Early February 1963: Giorgio Gomelsky becomes interested in the Rolling Stones, later becoming their unofficial manager.
