: re: "A rolling stone gathers no moss"
: The name of the band (Rolling Stones) is NOT from the late Brian Jones thinking of this phrase. Rather, it is a tribute to bluesmen Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon from a line in their song "I'm a Man": "I'm a rolling stone . . . "

Yes, that's right. My page on that phrase doesn't actually say that Brian Jones thought up the phrase.
