Rock and roll legend Sir Mick Jagger made a return to his musical roots earlier this month when he paid a visit to The Half Moon pub in Putney.

The 79-year-old megastar was pictured outside with his younger brother Chris after they both had attended a gig by Slim Chance a band formed by their old friend Ronnie Lane of the Small Faces.

Slim Chance said on its Instagram page, "What a wonderful surprise when @chrisjagger and his big brother @mickjagger turned up at @thebandslimchance Christmas Gig @thehalfmoonpub.

"'Chris making a guest appearance in Ronnie Lanes song How Come . What a fabulous evening thanks all for coming and joining us."

The Rolling Stones played gigs at the Putney venue in their very early days and made a return to performing there in 2000.

Their music can still be heard live on a regular basis with tribute band The Rollin’ Stoned appearing regularly.
