Rock gods Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have joined the debate over a plaque at a train station branded "disgusting" by a former bandmate.
Bill Wyman, former bassist for the Rolling Stones, criticised Dartford council in June after it installed a plaque at the town's railway station which said Mick and Keith "went on to form the Rolling Stones" after meeting there.
Bill complained that this was inaccurate, but in a recent interview Keith said he "can't understand why" he took offence to it as he was not present when the band was formed.
Speaking to Esquire magazine, guitarist Keith said: "I actually don't know exactly what it said, but Mick just the other day came up to me and says, 'do you believe this s***, man? Bill Wyman is complaining about the plaque at Dartford station."
"I said, 'A plaque? I thought we had a statue.'"
"I know he took umbrage with [what the plaque said], but I can't understand why. Bill wasn't there when the band was formed.
"Ian Stewart formed the band — we gravitated around him. Bill was a quirky, funny old f*****, but why he should make some kind of public 'do' about it.
"I think Mick sent a note saying - because Bill comes from a town called Penge - 'Bill, if a plaque went up in Penge station that said you were the founding member of the Rolling Stones, do you think we'd complain?'
"But Bill - oh, we love him dearly, and he was a hell of a bass player. We didn't tell him to leave."
Council leader Jeremy Kite said in June he had "never upset a Rolling Stone before but we are going to put it right". However, Bill it seems can't always get what he wants as the plaque is still yet to be replaced.
