Mmmm... gonna have to take issue with this one. I've heard plenty of slop (and not the good kind) in their live shows. Out of tune guitars, atonal singing, you-name-it. I dig the Stones. But a crack live band, they ain't. (maybe a live band on crack...)

The haters hate because they're half the age of the Stones, and already have bad backs, bad knees, and beer bellies. It jealousy, plain and simple. They hate the fact that the Stones can tour the world pushing 70, while they get winded crossing the room in their 30's and 40's.

The Rolling Stones rule. They still deliver on stage, and every town they play in, they are the party for the night. Long may they rock!

really?  i've seen them14 times, in most major western American cities.  I'm a musician also, and have played in several bands.  your "out of tune" guitars statement is puzzling.   i've never known their live shows to be anything other than well, pretty much perfect.  a biatchoreographed maybe, but, when you have tours the size of theirs, they have to be.

can you cite specific instances?

Since Willie Nelson is Willie Nelson, no one really comments on his age.  I mean, its Willie Nelson, we expect him to still be playing, he needs the money.  Also, he is the embodiment of awesome, and you wish you were that cool.  Most of the same stuff applies for BB King -- he just doesn't need the money like Willie does.

Trust me, Willie doesn't need the money.   It's been over 20 years since his IRS problems and he's played a TON of paying gigs since then.   His Ranch in Luck TX is long since bought and paid for.   He does it because he loves what he does and he doesn't want to just wait around to die and he has a lot of hangers on he financially supports ... pretty much the same reason the Stones still do it.

Because rock and roll, is at its heart, a statement of youthful energy, sex, and rebellion. Country and blues are not the same.....old, wisened, and grizzled men are expected to be singing and performing this type of music. Their weariness lends weight to the music and lyrics and their performances don't depend on prancing around a stage with youthful energy and swagger to pull off. In short, Willie and BB act their ages (more or less). The Stones are 70-year olds acting like they are still 20. It doesn't work and often just looks silly.

It's not trolling.   Generally people who go on and on about "selling out" generally prove to be mouth drooling idiots.   Most of whom "sold out" their lives right out of the gate.

If that were really true, the Rolling Stones would have been out of business by the time they hit 35 ,and everyone would have moved on to the next twenty something flavor of the week.   More than youth, I think it's more of a celebreation of the ego and the id.      But at it's heart, Rock and Roll is mostly about marketing.    It's been that way since The Colonel realized he could get filthy rich handpicking a young hillbilly from the outskirts of Memphis to play black music to suburban white kids.    I try to invest too much time pondering it's supposed grandiose larger principles.    It's a bit like saying that St. Paddy's Day is supposed to be about Irish Pride, when really it's just a way to sell a shiatload of green beer.

I think it comes down to... are they any good live?  I haven't seen clips of recent Stones shows, so I'll leave that to others to decide.  If they're not- its a cash cow.

Willie and BB still have it.  Also, their styles of music lend themselves fine to 70+ year old performers.

Also, Willie doesn't just play a "Greatest Hits Now Send Me the Check" concert.  Like Neil Young as well.  Yes, they play some expected hits because fans diserve that.

downstairs: Also, Willie doesn't just play a "Greatest Hits Now Send Me the Check" concert


I've seen Willie Nelson over 30 times, so I'm getting a kick ......   Willie Nelson plays the same exact setlist night after night after night after night.  Maybe once every 3 years he'll swap out a newer popular songs (Roll Me UP and Smoke Me When I Die/Whiskey For My Men) with an older one, but every show he is going to start off with Whiskey Rive and it's going to morph into Still is Still Moving.   He'll play the Time Slips Away/Crazy/Nightlife medley.   He's going to close with the the spirituals (Will the Circle Be Unbroken/I'll Fly Away).  Inbetweenst he's going to throw it to Sister Bobbie and she's going to play Sweet Georgia Brown.   He's going to play Georgia On My Mind.     Im not begrudging him for it, because he's nearly 80 years old (for fark's sake) and he doesn't have the memory to harken back to a deep catalog to pull out a bunch of deep cuts.  And there is something oddly familiar and comforting about getting the same concert every single time, the way it's familiar and comforting to get the same order at your favorite local diner ... but it is what it is.

It does work and often looks and sounds awesome, otherwise tickets wouldn't be hundreds of dollars and sell out in minutes decade after decade.

Rock and roll is about rebellion? Then the Rolling Stones are rebelling against your idea that rock and roll is about youth. Music shouldn't have some Logan's Run cut-off age. That's ridiculous.

Like it or not, the Stones deliver a show worthy of the outrageous ticket prices. (Luckily enough for poor fans like myself, they're awfully good at recording their shows and distributing them later.) Check out Shine A Light if you think the Stones can't still put on a good show. The Stones are cool, and some people stay cool no matter how old they get. More power to them, IMHO.

You do know that the Rolling Stones started as a blues band, and are named after a blues song, don't you?

If you don't like the Stones, don't go to the show when they come to town. But when they do come to town, it's a AAA rockin' good time and the hottest party in the city. I envy everyone who will get to see them on this tour.

That's cool.  You're still on point about him not phoning it in,  He can't feel like a million bucks every night at his age, but you would never know it watching him.   He'll also sign autographs for anyone who stands outside his bus after the show.

I've seen Willie Nelson twice in the last 5 years and he is definitely worth at least $60 a ticket. Best live shows I have ever seen. Last time at the Saratoga Mountain Winery we had seats off to the side of the stage and were about 30 feet from Willie. It takes a few songs for him to get warmed up, but when he starts going he really goes off.
I wish I could see the Rolling Stones. I don't think of them as old so much as experienced.

InmanRoshi: It's been that way since The Colonel realized he could get filthy rich handpicking a young hillbilly from the outskirts of Memphis to play black music to suburban white kids.


That's a really ill-informed description of the genesis of Elvis.

Elvis was already playing black music to white people when the Colonel "discovered" him, and he was getting famous doing it.  The Colonel was a carny, and hitched his wagon to Elvis' star expecting to make some quick money off a flash in the pan, never expecting that Presley would become the cultural phenomenon he did.

/It's why he was such a shiatty manager: he never understood what he was dealing with, and he always had one foot out the door in case the whole thing came crashing down on him.
