Stones In Stone

A British sculptor is seeking funding so he can recreate a meeting of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards at the site it took place - the Dartford train station in 1961.  The future Rolling Stones members had attended the same grammar school but did not stay in touch after moving on to their next school levels. On October 17, 1961, Mick was on the railway platform to catch a London bound train to get back to the London School of Economics when Richards arrived carrying a guitar.  The two rode together, talking music the whole way to London, a conversation that ultimately led to Richards joining Jagger in a band known as Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys.  10 foot statues of the two will go up on the platform if the money can be raised to pay for the project.
