First off the block a collection of stationery from Quo Vadis, with plenty more in the pipeline.

London, 12 July 1962. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Elmo Lewis, Dick Taylor, Ian Stewart and Mick Avory performed together for the first time under the name Rollin’ Stones at the Marquee Club. It was the start of what was to be a rock legend. Half a century later the celebrations in 2012 look promising from a licensing point of view.


Following the hullabaloo over the re-issue of the album “Some-Girl” and the launch of the long-awaited www.StonesArchive.com – with its treasure trove of previously unpublished images films and songs and unique merchandising objects – new activities and events are on the agenda for rock’s wickedest band.

Quo Vadis, a European leader in diaries, is the first company to celebrate the British group’s golden anniversary. They are bringing out a stationery collection for 2012/2013 dedicated to teenagers with diaries, pencil cases, files and bags, all personalised with Mick Jagger’s über-famous tongue. Contracts have been inked for the European Union, Lebanon, the Middle East and Africa.

There’s gossip on the grapevine about a possible concert or tour to celebrate the anniversary that would see the Stones back together again for the first time since 2007. For sure the Rolling Stones are going to be hot, hot, hot next year and other licensees are likely to succumb to the lure of the one-time bad boys of rock, who are now, ehm, rolling in it!
