History was made...
BBC reports that a railway station in Kent, which is where Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met, is set to be marked with a plaque. The two met at the Dartford station on October 17, 1961. The two recognized each other as they both went to Wentworth Primary School in the town. Jagger then went to Dartford Grammar. The two met on Platform Two as Richards was going to Sidcup Art College (with his Hofner cutaway electric guitar) and Jagger was going to the London School of Economics and carrying his blues records.
Dartford council leader Jeremy Kite said the town was proud of being known for that. He added: "Fate was sealed and they started talking about playing their music together. They went off and recruited Brian Jones next, and the rest is history."
The Rolling Stones then formed in 1962 and the rest, as they say, is history. Kite said the heritage blue plaque would remind others of the moment.
