Are the Rolling Stones named after the Bob Dylan song?

Asked by Andi Alfaro

The Answer

The name of it is Rolling Stone, which comes from an old saying: ‘A Rolling Stone gathers no moss. ‘ Muddy Waters used the name for a song he wrote; The Rolling Stones took their name from Muddy’s song, and “Like A Rolling Stone” was the title of Bob Dylan’s first rock and roll record.
