60 years on the same train: Mick Jagger and Keith Richards mark six decades since they met

Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have marked the 60th anniversary of their first encounter at Dartford railway station.

The Rolling Stones bandmates first spoke at the Kent railway station in South East England, six decades ago on October 17, 1961.

And to celebrate their friendship, the official Stones Twitter account wrote: "60 years on the same train."

In 2015, Dartford council had a blue plaque placed at the station, which read: "Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met on platform 2 on 17 October 1961 and went on to form The Rolling Stones - one of the most successful rock bands of all time."

The 'Gimme Shelter' group's former bassist, Bill Wyman, 84, "took umbrage" with the sign and insisted it wasn't factually correct.

And Guitarist Keith, 77, reacted: "I actually don't know exactly what it said, but Mick just the other day came up to me and says, 'do you believe this s***, man? Bill Wyman is complaining about the plaque at Dartford station."
