Just as I only fap to women half my age or younger, I only listen to band formed after I was born. And plenty of good bands have formed since 1987.

Say what you will, I still love the spectacle of a Stones show.

The new song is great!!! I'm quite relieved to hear that it straight up rocks. Too bad it's not a full album's worth of new stuff. I just hope the next new one is a Keith rocker, it's been way too long since he's rocked a vocal.

I hope I can score a ticket to a show, if not, I know the Stones are good at documenting their performances, so I'm sure we'll get an album and dvd out of it at least.

Long live the Rolling Stones!!!

Love the Stones. Catch them every chance I get. Can't believe they're still doing it after all these years. Fred and Barney.


/still love Steven Wright, too

Don't know the guy's name on that VH1 show who said 'They're better than your band, and your band, and your band. And they're older than your grandparents. so fark you!'

I'm pretty sure Kieth's been dead for at least ten years, he's just so well preserved by all the alcohol that no one's noticed.

So the Stones are now sounding like Primal Scream?

Agreed. Lots of energy. Mick sounds 20 years old.

Sounds like the same crap song they've been recording for the last 30 years. Tuneless verse, same tired backbeat. "When the Whip Comes Down" part XXVII. 

But yeah, way better than anyone thought they'd sound in 2012, if you asked people in 1962, or '82.
 
2012-10-11 12:35:52 PM
it's their best work since Exile!!

I think I can agree with all posters I've quoted.

under a mountain: Simpsons did it!!


They weren't the first to make that joke. I read it in a review when 'Steel Wheels' came out.

The Steel Wheelchair joke is 23 years old.

I recently watched that episode with my daughter, and it pained me to realize that it was set in what is now the past.

I miss Brian Jones and Bill Wyman. Keith may have cowritten "Satisfaction" but the riff doesn't start on E (as he always plays it) but on B like Brian and Bill played it.

Going to put the T.A.M.I. Show DVD in...

i saw them on the bridges to babylon tour. 1998? 1999? in mannheim germany. AWESOME show!

Still better than most these days...still want to see them.
I'd give'em my cash.

At the risk of sounding pedantic, Charlie Watts is the only Stone in his 70s.

I was going to mercilessly criticize you for being full of shiat, but I must admit that is not a bad song. It's no Gimme Shelter, but it's got a classic Stones vibe to it. It would be well deserving of a B-side of anything they put out before 1976.

This is not a followup to the followup to the Mike Love-Brian Wilson thread.
