The Rolling Stones took their name from either the reference to "Rollin' Stone" in "Mannish Boy" or from Muddy's song titled "Rollin Stone Blues." The group had no name at the time. Brian Jones was on the phone with a newspaper (probably Jazz News) talking up the band and was asked for its name. On the spot the name came to him. Jones was fired from the band for unreliability in 1969 and found dead in his swimming pool within a month. The most musically talented Stone was destroyed by success. "The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom." Unfortunately Jones didn't live long enough to read the Palace of Wisdom. He died at age 27.

The Rolling Stones have a great version of this song - recorded in Canada, I want to note for the record - on their “Love You Live”album


Added. Thanks,Ian.
