Second: we learn, that a statue of Mick and Keith will be shown in Dartford
While we already know, that a blue plaque has been placed in Dartford railway station to commemorate their first meeting in 1961, the statues of the two Glimmer Twins will be installed on the High Street in early 2023. The statues themselves will be created by local sculptor Amy Goodman, who intends to create the figures as if they are mid performance.
Amy is quite thrilled and seems to focus on the right details while creating her art. She writes:
“It’s so thrilling to be able to share that I have been commissioned by Dartford Borough Council to sculpt two incredible music icons, Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones. Such an unbelievable honour and privilege. Both Dartford boys, they will be completed in bronze and installed at One Bell Corner in Dartford Town later this Spring.
I really wanted to capture their energy, mid performance. Mick Jagger strutting, whilst Keith is absorbed in his guitar: his famous ‘Micawber’ Telecaster.”
