The Rolling Stones started rolling 50 years ago, in April, 1962. But Mick and Keith first met long before that, when they both enrolled at Wentworth Primary School in Dartford, England. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the band's formation, the school released this picture of the two boys taken January 9, 1951:
