Seriously, Rob , the Glastonbury show (a couple of years ago?) they had session musicians propping them up and they looked completely shot.
I can imagine how they can collectively play their great back catalogue and create a fantastic atmosphere and that’s great, but I’ll just give you a quote from a very good mate of mine.
I’ve seen the Stones 9 times. I’ve seen (the tribute band) The Counterfeit Stones, at least 20 times and there’s no comparison. If I had the choice, I would go to see the Counterfeits. The original Stones are fucked, the Counterfeits are brilliant.
This guy is Rolling Stones mental and he reckons there’s been no better British band, ever. AND, that was all ten years ago
(as an aside, the same bloke owes me a million quid, but that’s another story )
