The Rolling Stones began calling themselves the "World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band" in the Sixties, and few argued with them — even then. More than 40 years later, the band's music continues to sound vital. With literally scores of genre-setting hits under the group's belt — and fronted by two of rock's biggest archetypes — the Rolling Stones have done more to define the look, attitude and sound of rock & roll than any other band in the genre's history.
May 1978

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are in Woodstock, New York. Keith Richards also goes through another (black box) heroin cure, the end of his use except for a short relapse a year later, with the help of his assistant Jane Rose, as well as Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall. His freeing himself of heroin effectively puts an end to his 11-year relationship with Anita Pallenberg.
