    October 17, 1961. A train station in Kent, England. There, Keith Richards recognized Mick Jagger, as they attended elementary school together years earlier.

    A moment of fate. One that would change the course of their lives and of rock music.

    Keith was carrying his guitar heading to Sidcup Art College while Mick was en route to the London School of Economics. They began a discussion and formed The Rolling Stones a year later.

    That location is going to be commemorated with a blue plaque that marks historic locations in England.

    People at the station will be reminded of the momentous and fateful occasion that took place there decades ago.

    Rock fans should make pilgrimages there.
