December 6: A Day In Rolling Stones History

Considering their 50+ year career, it’s not surprising that some major events in Rolling Stones history may fall on the same date, but today (December 6) marks the anniversary of three very important moments.

1968 – Release of Beggars Banquet

This album kicked off one of the greatest sequence of albums (followed by Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main St.) in all of rock and roll.  It also marked the Stones’ return to their rock roots (“Sympathy for the Devil,” “Street Fighting Man”) after experimenting with more psychedelic sounds.
