1/2? A synth or loop? yes. 1/2 the music? No.

exactly.
not cheating.

cheating is when the "rolling stones" in press conferences, videos, tv ads, magazines, etc etc. presents mick, keith, charlie, and ron.

and then onstage its them plus:
a 4 piece horn section
3 keyboard players
2 backup guitarists
3 backup vocalists
1 bass player (darryl jones, who is a muthfucka on bass)

as I see it, that is the rolling stones (4) plus 13.

plus, they'll probably have backing tracks as well this tour.


don't get me wrong; the stones are great. but it's like the who these days; "the rolling stones" and "the who" just aint what they used to be.

which lends me to believe that sting was right in never reforming the police; sting might be ultra adult contempo now, but at least the police rest in infamy.

yep, it's true. the stones are coming to crappy little moncton, new brunswick.

it only took 35 years.

so maybe there's hope that u2 will come? i don't think so.

HOLY S***************T... they MAY BE coming to CHILE!!!!

I'm going no matter what... All I have to do is buy the Forty Licks album, and their new one, and I'll be updated...

IF I DON'T GET SOME SHELTER I'M GONNA FADE AWAY!!!!


PS: If U2 releases the 4th Leg and are ALSO coming here, it'll be the greatest summer ever!!!

I'll go one better - even WHEN they release a new album, they're still a nostalgia act. They usually only play 2, MAYBE 3 songs from a new record, on the last couple of tours.

I love the Stones, for what they were, and I've seen them live, and they're great. But their time has long since passed. They really are just old men who don't know when the hell to get off the stage at this point.

If all you've been doing for most of your life is play Rock n Roll, and playing it well, why on Earth would you stop? Especially when people are still willing to pay to see you?

What's that line Bono said about Keef "When he straps on that guitar, the lines fall away from his face". Him and Ronnie, you got to admit, love playing live.

i find it funny that even at a u2 forum loads of people say that the stones are too old to be doing gigs and making records. go check them out, then you now you're wrong
