The History of 1971
On May 12th, 1971, Mick Jagger and Bianca Macias tie the knot in a Roman Catholic ceremony at St. Anne’s Church in St. Tropez in the south of France. Mick Jagger had been studying Catholicism with the pastor of St. Anne’s, Abbe Lucien Baud so they could have an altar wedding after the civil ceremony. With the sun shining on the Cote d’Azur, it all looked like everything was set for the perfect wedding, but this was The Rolling Stones…
The Rolling Stones should have been rolling in money, Sticky Fingers had recently been released and was to be the biggest selling Rolling Stones album. They had also just signed a new record deal with Atlantic Records for a large fee.
However by April 5th, 1971, British taxes were due and The Rolling Stones owed taxes…..alot of them!
