Like None Other

Even thirty or forty years ago, few would have disputed The Rolling Stones’ officially unofficial title of The Greatest Rock and Roll Band In the World. The fact that they’re still hitting the road and playing to sold-out house more than fifty years into their career pretty much confirms it.

The original bad boys of rock and roll built a musical legacy with critically acclaimed studio albums, a string of hit records spanning well over 6 decades, legendary live performances, and a killer work ethic. The band has been featured in films like Gimme Shelter and in numerous documentaries that explore their place in music history.

Today, The Rolling Stones is the subject of Exhibitionism, a multi-media exhibit currently running at the Saatchi Gallery in London. Over 550 objects from the band members’ personal collections are on display, including instruments, original album cover art, costumes, posters, even a re-creation of an apartment the group shared in the early 60s.
