A Brief History of The Rolling Stones

Scott Brittenham is the CEO, president, and co-founder of Clean Energy Capital, LLC, a Tucson, Arizona-based investment company. Mr. Brittenham’s three decades of experience have contributed to the success of some of the company’s major financial transactions. Besides his work, he enjoys an array of outside interests, including yoga, ice hockey, travel, and music. Scott Brittenham’s favorite band is the Rolling Stones, a rock band from England who arrived in the United States during the British Invasion of the 1960s and who has remained prolific since.

Mick Jagger is the longtime front man for the band, with Keith Richards and Brian Jones originally on guitars. The Stones cultivated popularity in the United States by self-proclaimedly rivaling the Beatles, who at first carried a clean-cut, poppy presence. The Stones styled themselves as the Beatles’ “bad-boy” counterparts, pursuing grittier, blues-inspired hard rock in favor of the poppier, more psychedelic sounds becoming prominent during the era. Throughout the next two decades, the band’s lineup and management shifted, with Brian Jones passing away and several other musicians joining the group. The Stones experimented with a variety of styles, fixating early in their career on blues covers and later developing their signature sound.

The Rolling Stones remain an iconic fixture in rock history. The band has toured and recorded fairly consistently over the past 40 years and remains a household name and pop culture stalwart.
