This portion is dedicated to the greatest band of The Rolling Stones, which started in 1962 and still together. What made them stick together after simply five decades of music, I simply can't say, as Keith Richards said in his book "Life. If I can excite Mick, then Mick can excite the world. Last 2012 they started celebrating their fifty-six years as a band.  They are considered the longest-running band on the planet.  What makes them great is their passion; as Keith Richard said in his book "Life," if I can excite Mick, Mick can excite the world.   This is a band that never split or separate, and they will be there together for life.
