When was the last time they issued a decent album?

 

The Stones have become their own Tribute Band, which is not to say that they aren't a brilliant live act.

 

I saw them at Roundhay years ago and, having seen them once, have had no great urge to go and see them again.

 

Mick Jagger is 70 this month.

Same here, although I saw them at Main Road in 1990.

I enjoyed the Glastonbury set. I'd go to see them just because they are the Rolling Stones. Not that I could afford a ticket.

 

Does it really matter when they last put out a decent album with the gold standard back catalogue they've got to draw on?

 

And who goes to see a band like that to hear the new stuff anyway? In my experience, 'here's one from the new album' always sparks a surge for the bar or the toilets. Just play the goddamn hits! :)

 

I'd hope to be as agile as Mick Jagger when I reach 70, but I'm not even that agile now. Fair play to him, I say.

I don't mind hearing a band play new stuff. :unsure:
But in the case of the Stones JD is probably right here.

Noooo!!! they were dirgy and awful and wtf has happened to Alex Turner?

What has happened to him? Has he stopped sounding like George Formby?

The Stones sounded tight but looked pretty grim, like they were gonna keel over at any minute......someone mentioned The Who, I went to see them at manchester in June, they were immense, sounded amazing and looked in pretty good nick still

More an observation on their apparent health, presumably they're all roughly the same age (pushing 70ish?).....but that the Who were wearing it well comparitively.....

Chuffer! I thought the Stones still put on a decent show. It's still the only way to judge the true worth of a decent band, seeing them live! Some bands just have it, some bands just lack it! Post 12 has it right for me.

Well I was there and I can tell you it was absolutely fantastic, the atmosphere was electric.

I'm not a big stones fan but it was great, I've watched tge TV coverage and it really doesn't get across the energy from the crowd or the band. I've been to my fair share of Glastonburys and the stones set on Saturday was up there with one of my best 'Glasto' moments, although there has been many :-) still THE best festival in my eyes.

Are you comparing seeing the who 'live' to the stones on the TV or were you at Glastonbury?

Lucky ######. It's fashionable to slag off Glastonbury and its true you do have to have money to go, but it is a special festival.

And, if that doesn't work, "now Keith's going to sing one of his songs" should do the trick. ;)

I like the Stones a lot but if i'd been at Glastonbury I'd have been at west holt watching a storming Public Enemy set. Now performing live with a band as well as a DJ they were immense and showed off a fabulous back ccatalogue AND the new stuff to great effect
Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.
