In a 1962 letter to his aunt, Patty, a then-18-year-old Keith Richards described a chance meeting with a guy he knew from primary school, a certain "Mick Jagger."
Anyways the guy on the station, he is called Mick Jagger and all the chicks and the boys meet every Saturday morning in the 'Carousel' some juke-joint well one morning in Jan I was walking past and decided to look him up. Everybody's all over me I get invited to about 10 parties. Beside that Mick is the greatest R&B singer this side of the Atlantic and I don't mean maybe. I play guitar (electric) Chuck style we got us a bass player and drummer and rhythm-guitar and we practice 2 or 3 nights a week. SWINGIN'.
Three months later, The Rolling Stones made their live debut at London's Marquee Club.
