October 2021: Kingswood Memories

September 30 2021

The Rolling Stones

Following their formation in London in 1962 the Rolling Stones have played to huge audiences around the world for almost six decades.

However, much less is known about Kingswood’s very own “Rolling Stones”, who performed across this area in the 1950s. Led by Bill Stone (in the white stetson hat, and fourth from the left in the picture), the band consisted mainly of other members of the Stone family. The band was known to practice in the Cross Keys pub in Kingswood.

Kingswood Heritage Museum would like to know more about the band, and would welcome any information that readers may be able to provide by email at: kingswoodmuseum@gmail.com, or by calling 0117 960 5664
