The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year with a wide variety of projects, including a full-length documentary, a photo book and, hopefully, a run of live dates sometime in 2013.
As part of one 50th anniversary project, the band have issued an open call for fan photos, video and any other Stones paraphernalia collected throughout the years. The band posted the following message earlier today via their Facebook page:
"We're gearing up to celebrate our fiftieth anniversary with a lot of exciting plans, and we'd appreciate your help with some of them.
"Have you got any interesting photos, videos or audio of the band or band members? Maybe you filmed us on Super 8, stepping off the Isle of Wight ferry in 1964? Or perhaps you have made a VHS recording of us hanging out backstage at MSG in 1981? Do you have a recording from our gig in Streatham in 1963?
"If you think you may have an amazing memento from our history we'd love to hear from you. Send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Thank you for being with us for all of these years, it's been a wild ride and there's plenty more to come!
"Love from Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie"
