May 10: On This Day in World History … briefly

On Mick Jagger’s 75th birthday, scientists named seven fossil stoneflies after present and former members of the band. Two species, Petroperla mickjaggeri and Lapisperla keithrichardsi, were placed within a new family Petroperlidae. The new family was named in honour of the Rolling Stones, derived from the Greek ‘petra’ that stands for ‘stone’. Scientists referred to the fossils as ‘Rolling Stoneflies’.

May 16, 1998 Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards fell while reaching for a book of nude art in his Connecticut home. The fall broke his ribs, causing the Stones to postpone many dates on their Bridges To Babylon tour. Remember the time he fell out of a tree too?
