In honor of their 50th anniversary, The Rolling Stones returned to the site of their first gig at London's Marquee Club on Wednesday for a new group photograph (seen at right). The band debuted at the club on July 12, 1962, but at the time, the lineup featured Mick Jagger (vocals), Brian Jones (guitar), Keith Richards (guitar), Ian Stewart (piano), Dick Taylor (bass) and Tony Chapman (drums.) Taylor, Stewart and Avory soon left the group and drummer Charlie Watts joined in 1963 while guitarist Ron Wood came on board in 1975.

The Stones are further celebrating their anniversary today by attending a photography exhibit at the Somerset House in London. The photos will appear in the upcoming book ROLLING STONES: 50, to be released in the U.S. by Hyperion in October. The new book features 700 illustrations, many of which are taken from the archive of the U.K.'s Daily Mirror newspaper, which contains the largest newspaper collection of Rolling Stones photography. The photographic history book also includes images taken by Philip Townsend, the photographer for the band's first ever shoot. Furthermore, a brand new Rolling Stones documentary film, directed by Brett Morgan, will be released in November.

With the Stones marking their Golden anniversary today, naturally questions have come up about a new album and tour.
Richards said this week that the Stones have met up for several rehearsals, but he didn't reveal much else about their plans.

"There's things in the works - I think it's definitely happening," he told the BBC. "But when? I can't say yet. We're playing around with the idea and had a couple of rehearsals - we've got together and it feels so good."
