Dartford's Rolling Stones win two NME awards
DARTFORD'S own rock veterans The Rolling Stones gained some satisfaction last night as they scooped two gongs at the NME awards, more than half a century after they first featured in the magazine's pages.
The group - who played a series of 50th anniversary concerts late last year - were named best live band and their documentary Crossfire Hurricane landed the best film prize.
In 1960, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met by chance at Dartford station resulting in the formation of The Rolling Stones in 1962.
They grew up in Dartford area and both attended Wentworth Primary School in Wentworth Drive.
