My parents were never big on music when I was growing up so I was never influenced by anything. When I turned 16, the Stones released GRRR! and I was curious as to what the big deal was. Of course, once I'd listen to it straight for the next few days I was properly turned on to the Stones. Since then I've absorbed all the back stories, who played on what track, which of the stones have played on other people tracks and been turned on to people like Chuck, Muddy and Buddy Guy. I've also been lucky enough to fly from London to see them in New York and am heading off to Desert Trip, to what will no doubt be the best weekend of my life! So thanks on behalf of everyone who has ever enjoyed a Stones song, and keep evolving!!
