LONDON (AP) - It was 50 years ago today _ as another band almost wrote _ that a group of London musicians first performed as The Rolling Stones.

The band members are celebrating Thursday by attending a photo exhibition chronicling their career at London's Somerset House _ and rehearsing for new gigs.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood and Charlie Watts are getting together 50 years to the day after the young R&B band played London's Marquee Club.

The Stones say they're amazed the group is still going strong.

Richards says his biggest regret is the death in 1969 of guitarist Brian Jones, but that on the whole the band's career has been "an incredible adventure."

He tells the BBC that the Stones have rehearsed for new shows, but dates haven't been fixed.
