The Rolling Stones Have Been A Band For Fifty Years

The Rolling Stones played their first concert under that name on July 12, 1962. That’s fifty years ago today. There are lots of different ways to feel about this. I’m choosing acceptance of the imperfection of even life’s very greatest joys. They are rehearsing for their next tour because they’ve sort of gotten themselves into a position where they can’t stop until Mick or Keith dies.
