Well almost.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones were introduced to each other on 7th April 1962 at the Ealing Jazz Club. The club was in the basement of 42a Ealing Broadway (still owned by Colin Bibra). Believe it or not, the venue is still there and is currently a night club called The Red Room.

Ealing Jazz Club was a Mecca in the early 60s for many up-and-coming young blues musicians who would go on to achieve worldwide fame. As well as Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones, other famous names that met and played at the club are:

Eric Clapton

Long John Baldry

Paul Jones (Manfred Mann)

Rod Stewart

Ginger Baker (Cream)

Manfred Mann

The Who (originally called The Detours)

Alexis Korner

Graham Bond

There are probably dozens more.

If anyone has any memories of these times we would be delighted to hear from them.
