The Rolling Stones have officially joined TikTok. Since joining the video-sharing platform yesterday, the iconic rock group have gained 186.1 thousand followers. Their first video that encourages fans to "Share your videos #TheRollingStones" has received over 17 million views. 

The Satisfaction group have released five other TikToks, with views spanning from 961 thousand views to 15 million views. The account will surely blow up as the band continues to post and gain followers. One of the clips is a snippet from a 1963 interview in Denmark, where the band members introduce themselves and what they do. Vocalist Mick Jagger states, "Mick Jagger, I sing...songs" in a fun throwback.

The Rolling Stones have announced their TikTok after music icon Dolly Parton also decided to jump on. 

Her first clip on TikTok is a montage of the greatest Dolly Parton videos with Nine To Five soundtracking the post. She captioned her first TikTok: "I have arrived!" with #heyitsdolly and #dollytok hashtags.

Another clip features fan-made tributes to Parton, which the singer collected and shared on her account. Parton has also shared a few baking videos with her song Berry Pie playing.

Born on 2 June 1941 in Bloomsbury, London, Watts started playing the drums in 1955 and would go on to join the influential Blues Incorporated in 1962, where he would go on to meet his future The Rolling Stones band members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones, as well as co-founding member Ian Stewart

Watts would officially join the group in 1963 and remain an active member until his death. 

Regarded as one of rock’s greatest drummers, Watts was known for his signature jazz-influenced style. 

The genre would remain hugely crucial to Watts throughout his life, even surprising fans at Perth’s Ellington Jazz Club back in 2014 with a surprise performance with The Rolling Stones saxophonist Tim Ries. 

The influence of The Rolling Stones and Watts is immense. 

In their 59-year history, the group have released well over 20 studio albums - starting with 1964’s The Rolling Stones and most recently with 2016’s Blue & Lonesome - and are multi-Grammy Award winners, including being inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame. 

The group remain chart mainstays, too, with 10 UK #1 studio albums and seven here in Australia.
