The FCC went nuts when Janet showed boob

they're gonna be mad when Keith's appendages start falling up during the show, and there's a pagan ritual to put him back together

The Rolling Stones do a lot of promotion for both the tour and album. They always announce the tour in a dramatic fasion which guess massive worldwide coverage on all the major media outlets. In addition the Rolling Stones play at major awards shows, make videos for their songs, do interviews etc.

Besides, its the record company that does most of the marketing for the album anyway in both cases. The Stones signed a deal for a commercial with a US phone company to help promote the tour an album.

The fact is, people love the Stones in concert, but only the more hardcore fans pay attention to the albums regardless of the quality of the albums.

And if they hadn't charged so damn much for decent tickets, I would have gone to see the Stones when they came to Detroit last summer.

Since the Super Bowl is in Detroit next month, many Detroiters -- including this one -- are quite insulted that the NFL didn't choose a Motown or Detroit act for the halftime show. Yes, Eminen never would made it past the censors. But if they wanted a rock act, what about Kid Rock, Mitch Ryder, Bob Seger, or The White Stripes?

At least Stevie Wonder is playing the pregame show.

because kd rock, mitch ryder and bob seger suck.

the white stripes are good... but, hey... i'm guessing the meeting at NFL headquarters went something like this...

white stripes, rolling stones, rolling stones, white stripes... who would bring in the higher ratings... ... it's gotta be the white stripes!

The NFL always goes for the biggest act they can get that year. The Rolling Stones was the obvious choice from the beginning.

First two, yes, but Seger? Classic stuff there.

Classic, but far from relevant. A Seger halftime would equal remote controls around the country being used.

Of course. The guy's been retired for over 10 years.

But his music is still classic.

I didn't say anything about the tour, I said about the albums. They don't do as much as U2 does. I think if they pushed Rough Justice the way U2 pushed for Vertigo on every show they would get a big hit. The Stones don't do SNL or go to Late Shows or to MTV or whatever. U2 does and I think that makes a huge difference. I know it's the record company that does most of the promotion but if artists as big as U2 and The Stones wants more or don't want too much of it the record company will do as they say in the end. I just think that if The Stones came out with a record as goods as A Bigger Bang and did a lot of promotion the album would be much more successful. But I guess they must hate doing that stuff.

"Super Bowl planners only want people 45 and younger to take the field during the Rolling Stones' halftime show. "

a lot of people are making a joke out of that, considering that the average age of the rolling stones is 112, but they make a point... the people involved will have to stand around for hours and then rush on and off of the field quickly. it's not like they're going to expect that of mick and keith... but frankly, mick could probably do it.
