The railway platform where Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met by accident is to be marked with a blue plaque.
The future Rolling Stones members ran into each other at Dartford Station on October 17, 1961, a year before the band was formed.
The pair recognised each other because they’d both attended primary school in the town some years previously.
The encounter led to the formation of the Stones. And Dartford Council leader Jeremy Kite says his town are proud of the link, telling the BBC: “Fate was sealed; they started talking about playing music together. They went off and recruited Brian Jones, and the rest is history.”
