The Rolling Stones in Bogota; songs of revolution or songs of empire?

That's a righteous show the lads put on in Colombia last year, ain't it?

This is the band that had a hit with "Street fighting man" several lifetimes ago.

Who's streets are they fighting for now?

If you live in Bogota and you can afford to attend a Stones concert, you're not from the streets.

You're from somewhere else.

But you're cheering the Rolling Stones?

As much as I love Mick and Keith and the whole nine yards, I think it's high time we said goodbye to corporate rock and roll.
