The Rolling Stones could be set to unveil a blue plaque for their 50th anniversary next year.

The Rolling Stones' anniversary rumours rumble on. The legendary rockers have been inactive for almost five years, with Mick Jagger currently working with the 'super group' project SuperHeavy.

With their 50th anniversary looming, The Rolling Stones have been linked with a world tour. The band recently met up in London, with the fan-led rumour mill immediately going into overdrive.

Doing their best to dampen expectations, the band have admitted that a reformation is unlikely. However the seminal group could still be awarded a blue plaque, unveiled at the site of their first gig.

Taking to the stage at the Marquee back in 1962, The Rolling Stones were just another part of the growing blues boom. Speaking to Live magazine via Contact Music, Mick Jagger joked that Keith Richards probably would not be in attendance.

"Maybe we could go back to the Marquee to accept a plaque for 50 years of service instead of a tour. That could work - except Keith obviously can't come. Charlie Watts (who wasn't in the band at that point) can come but he wouldn't get the plaque obviously."

Mick Jagger is currently focussing on SuperHeavy, a project he formed with Dave Stewart, Damian Marley, AR Rahman, Joss Stone and more.

Speaking to Spinner, the singer seemed relieved at the prospect of sharing vocal duties. "Well, it's a lot easier for me, to be honest. That's one of the things Dave (Stewart) sold me on in the beginning. 'You know, it won't be so hard for you, because you won't have to do everything all the time', and I said, 'Yeah, right'. But of course, you're present the whole time."

"When I wasn't singing I was playing the guitar, and when I wasn't playing the guitar, I was playing harmonica, and when I wasn't doing any of that, I was producing, and when wasn't doing that, I was making the tea."
