The long 50th anniversary season -- celebrating the start of the British Invasion -- is getting underway. The Rolling Stones plan to mark their half century together with a documentary to be released in September. It will feature footage dating back to 1963, including film stashed in vaults and from personal collections.
Earlier this week, Rolling Stone magazine confirmed the band has postponed its 50th anniversary tour until next year. The magazine quotes Keith Richards as saying they're just not ready. But insiders say Richards' health is one reason for the delay. The guitarist was on vacation in Fiji in 2006 when he suffered a head injury from which he's never fully recovered.
Also planned to mark the Stones anniversary is release of an album of 700 photographs.
