The Rolling Stones are the greatest rock band of all time, and they still rock hardcore. Yes, they do. A Stones concert is the greatest party on earth. Dublin's gonna be rockin' in the middle of May.

Yeah because no big rock stars have ever died from drugs or alcohol abuse.

Of all the great rock bands I've seen in my day, I'm ashamed that the Stones hasn't been one of them.
/my shame as I sang three of their songs while they were really big in my 8th grade school rock band

Pretty good record health-wise. As a band for 55 years, only one full-time member died.  Even then, he was technically a former member.

Well this could be the last time.

On the other hand, time is on their side.

Of course, time waits for no one.

They could still have some good times... or bad times.

Apparently they're not out of time.

Nor are they wasting time.

TL;DR - go have a good time, woman... or man, whoever's reading this.

They most likely figured out long ago it was worth paying six figures for a sober person just to watch them trip.

Seen them live 3 times, including a gig at the Los Angeles Coliseum in 1981 where Prince got a very rude reception and later when Guns n' Roses opened (and were why a good chunk of the crowd were there) and Axl complained about Slash being a junkie.

I'd really like to see them again, hope they tour California again soon.

I get what you're saying but that doesn't explain Bowie, who had the money and means but still passed away from cancer.

Mick and the boys have been lucky.

I've seen them  16 times.  Go.  Do whatever you have to do.  Mortgage your house, borrow money, whatever.  I livery in montana, and am trying tp put together a trip tp see them in London or berlin.

Has Bill Wyman been out of the band longer than he was in it?
 
2018-03-07 11:20:54 AM  
shiat, Wyman was born in 36!  farker actually has memories of WWII.  No wonder he retired.

under a mountain: Has Bill Wyman been out of the band longer than he was in it?


He left the group in 1993 (25 years ago) whereas he was with the group from 1962 to 1993 (31 years), so no, he hasn't.
