Both Keith Richards and Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones were born in Dartford, England.
They were classmates in 1950 and after discussing similarities in styles of music, they started a band in 1961.
Dartford Borough Council leader Jeremy Kite has chosen to immortalize these two with sculptures at One Bell Corner on Dartford High Street.
This is the location where the first meeting occurred, right near the train station.
Amy Goodman will be the sculptor of the statues.
