How Many Times Can You Keep Going Back to the Well?


The Rolling Stones have decided to tour again, and make money hand over fist. They are, apparently, broke and they need the cash. How else to explain the fact that tickets for their show cost $600?

I mean, honestly. Six hundred dollars? For what? An oldies act played by old men? A band so out of date that it can't even be bothered to release new material and pretend people want to hear what they have to play? People in Los Angeles have money coming out of their ears. And they still won't go see the Rolling Stones play yet another night of muddled songs.

Bridges to Babylon is sixteen years old. How much of that are they playing tonight?

At some point, you can't wring any more milk out of the teat and you need to shuffle off somewhere and die with some measure of dignity.
