Bill Wyman, former bassist with legendary rock band the Rolling Stones is not satisfied with a "disgusting" plaque put up to commemorate the band at Dartford station.
The plaque noted the meeting of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards at the station and claimed it led to the forming of the group.
It said: “Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met on platform 2 on 17 October 1961 and went on to form The Rolling Stones - one of the most successful rock bands of all time.”
While discussing how he hated history being re-written, the musician mentioned the commemoration at Dartford.
He said: “Mick Jagger and Keith Richards didn’t create the Rolling Stones - they were part of The Rolling Stones like all of us.
“Brian Jones wanted to form a blues band and he enlisted each member one by one. He gave the name The Rolling Stones, he chose the music and he was the leader.”
Guitarist Jones was one of the key influences behind the band’s direction in the early days, heavily influenced by blues artists such as Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf.
It is believed the group were named after a Muddy Waters song “Rollin’ Stone”.
Jones drowned in the swimming pool at his house in Sussex in 1969.
Speaking to 5 live, leader of Dartford council, Cllr Jeremy Kite said the council would rectify the mistake.
He said: “I've never upset a Rolling Stone before but we are going to put it right. Accuracy in history is really, really important and we want it to be right.
"We will create a new plaque which makes it clear that this is where Mick met Keith and went on to be part of The Rolling Stones."
