I was just watching a bit of video from one of the Stones' tours in South America thirty years ago.
It makes for compelling viewing.
As does Mick in 2012.
As does Mick in 1964.
And every sane person understands that it's all about Mick.
Here's where I have a problem; there are people who will happily spend $600 to see seventy-year-old Mick shake his money-maker, but they'll balk at paying a ten dollar cover to see the 18 year old next Mick Jagger at the local.
Let's get real, folks!
Give rock & roll a chance!
