The Rolling Stones will issue a 50th anniversary photo book, aptly titled The Rolling Stones: 50, on July 12. July 12 is significant because it's the exact the date in 1962 when the band debuted at the Marquee Club in London's Oxford Street. The new book will feature 700 illustrations, 300 of them in color and many taken from the archive of the U.K.'s Daily Mirror, which contains the largest newspaper collection of Rolling Stones photography. The band said in a statement: "This is our story of 50 fantastic years. We started out as a blues band playing the clubs and more recently we've filled the largest stadiums in the world with the kind of show that none of us could have imagined all those years ago. Curated by us, it features the very best photographs and ephemera from and beyond our archives."
