The Rolling Stones have hit a milestone on the social media circuit: they recently reached the 9 million fan mark on Facebook.

To mark the occasion, Stones guitarist Keith Richards posted a picture of himself holding a card saying “9,000,000 Stones Fans.”

“Thanks to everyone of you Facebookers who like the Rolling Stones,” posted Keith on behalf of the group.“It’s only rock and roll but we love you!”

Stones fans continue to wait for news on the band’s plans for their upcoming 50th Anniversary; the group played its first show on July 12, 1962 at London’s Marquee Club.

The band recently announced the summer release of “Rolling Stones: 50,” a historical photo book that will be part of a year-long celebration of the Stones at 50
