School's Out

It's a foul-tasting, vomit-inducing concoction but it's got thousands queuing to try it. Ayahuasca is an hallucinogenic cocktail made from jungle vines and everyone is trekking deep into the Amazon to test its supposedly magic properties.
The Rolling Stones
No-one, least of all The Rolling Stones themselves, could have imagined that they'd still be together 50 years after first starting out. But, half a century on, they are the greatest rock n roll band of all time. And they can't stop touring the world.
