If I had a time machine I'd travel back to 1969, lay a big bet on the Mets to win the World Series, collect the Rolling Stones, and then bring them back with me so they could beat up the 2014 Stones for being an embarrassment.

Or at least advise against recording and touring past 1978.  Keith would probably think it came to him on a bender.

Don't get the hate. Mick still delivers, the band sounds great, and they continue to resurrect lesser-known fan favorites. Love me some "Silver Train" - especially with Mick Taylor - but Keith's "Slipping Away" would have been the highlight for me. Great song.

For one, the reason the Stones were as good as they were in the 70s was Mick Taylor. And, how did he get thanked? By being denied songwriting credits because the Glimmer Twins wanted more money for themselves. And then, Ronnie Wood and "Start Me Up" happened.

Don't knock Start Me Up. As a kid, it was the song that first made me pay attention to the Stones. And then I started to dig into their back catalog... For that alone I still smile when I hear that song.

It's amazing to think Rory Gallagher was almost in that band instead of Mick Taylor.

That is an atrocious mix.  I cant really tell what they sound like from that clip.  A lot of bands will sounds like total ass if all you can really here is the vocals and some high hat.

Heaven forbid that a 'going away tour' mean exactly that.

Oh, wow. That was embarrassing.  Sounded like a bunch of 16 year olds just learning the songs.

Check out Sweet Summer Sun... the Stones still rock. The concerts feel like the big events they are, it's an awesome, fun time. And it's great to have Mick Taylor back. Those years were special.

That said, the set list is very predictable and dull to a long time fan like me. The Stones deliver the goods on stage, but they're playing to the casual fan almost exclusively now.

I  saw the Rolling Stones tour bus in the fast lane the other day.
It was going fifty miles an hour with its right turn signal blinking.
