The Rolling Stones played their first live show at the Marquee Club in London on July 12, 1962. The band at this point features Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones, with Dick Taylor, later of the Pretty Things, on bass and Tony Chapman. The band was paid 20 pounds.
In this clipping, you will see that it lists Jagger, Richards, Elmo Lewis who was really Brian Jones, Dick Taylor, “Stu” who was Ian Stewart and future drummer for The Kinks, Mick Avory. Avory did not play this show. Mick did do a couple of rehearsals with the band. When Jagger did the publicity for the show, he thought Mick Avory (misspelled Avery in the clipping) would be playing it. We have confirmed this on a couple of different occasions with Avory.
We guess it would be proper to say Happy 56th Birthday to The Rolling Stones!!!
