Pivotal Mick Jagger-Keith Richards Meeting Place in England to be Marked with a Plaque

Flikr

There are two sides to every story, and that includes how childhood friends Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were reintroduced to each other as teenagers at a train station in Dartford, England, while en route to their respective colleges.  What’s not in question is the exact location where the future Rolling Stones leaders crossed paths on Oct. 17, 1961, and officials in Dartford have announced plans to mark the spot with a blue heritage plaque.

Jagger told Rolling Stone in 1995 it was the R&B albums he was carrying that caught Richards’ eye at their first meeting.  Richards, in an April 1962 letter to his aunt, remembered it differently: He was holding a Chuck Berry album, which prompted Jagger to approach him, he wrote.

Other notable rockers with blue heritage plaques that indicate significant locations in England from their lives and careers include John Lennon, Keith Moon and Jimi Hendrix.
