Names And Ages of The Rolling Stones Band Members
The Names And Ages of The Rolling Stones Band Members are Mick Jagger (79), Keith Richards (79), and Ronnie Wood (76). The band has had a total of 8 members.
The original lineup consisted of Mick and Keith alongside Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts, and Brian Jones. That lineup was perhaps their most iconic one as each member brought something special to the group.
Then-leader Brian brought his instrumental knowledge, Mick and Keith brought their blues-based skills, and Bill and Charlie were a tight rhythm section.
The five-piece, who got their start in London in 1962, would soon become one of the greatest bands of the decade, rivaling The Beatles, who had a full two-year head start on them. In fact, the perceived rivalry between the two groups would cause both to reach the heights of the UK charts.
However, while the Beatles would be done by 1970, the Stones have persisted, and are still around to this day.

Much like the Beatles, the Stones existed before the album was seen as a holistic product as it is now. So, instead of being chosen and curated by the band, their early albums were just a collection of songs.
However, unlike the Beatles, in the Stones' case both their UK and US releases are seen as official parts of their discography and accepted into the canon. So, their early work is very hard to collate for their later fans.
The Stones saw immediate success on the charts with their first and second albums hitting #1 in the UK. Their fifth album overall, Out of Our Heads would be their first #1 in the US.
However, their albums wouldn't start taking shape as albums rather than a collection of songs until 1967, when they released Their Satanic Majesties Request. Though it charted at #3 and #2 in the UK and US respectively, many saw it as a cheap imitation of the Beatles' Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.
It was with the following album Beggars Banquet that the Stones began a truly legendary album run, critically speaking. Every album from here until 1978's Some Girls holds critical weight.
They would continue to see success commercially as the first album post their critically successful days, Emotional Rescue was a #1 record in the UK and the US. Even their most recent album, Blue and Lonesome, released over half a century after their formation, hit #1 in the UK and #4 in the US.
The Rolling Stones Current Members
Founding members Mick and Keith alongside guitarist Ronnie Wood are the sole current members of The Rolling Stones.
Ronnie joined the band in 1975 after the departure of Mick Taylor. To many, he is also a definitive Stones member despite joining more than a decade after the band's formation.
As for what the band is doing, they are doing what they do best, touring and recording a new album. Their most recent tour was the Sixty tour which saw them do 14 shows all over Europe from June 1, 2022, to August 3, 2022.
This tour came less than a year after their previous No Filter Tour which saw 58 shows over the course of four years from September 9, 2017, to November 23, 2021.
Speaking of their new album, reportedly Paul McCartney of the Beatles is set to appear on it. This will be McCartney's first time working with the Stones on an album.
Who Is The New Drummer For The Rolling Stones?
The Rolling Stones haven't hired a new drummer to officially join the band. However, Steve Jordan has been drumming during tours since 2021.
Who Was The Lead Guitarist For The Rolling Stones?
