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.

I saw Keith at The Palm once. I asked him what the song "Something Happened to Me Yesterday" on Between The Buttons was all about. He winked and said "I'll never tell."

Wonder if they're still a bag of nerves on first nights.

You know what else has been a-banned for the last fifty years? Thalidomide.

I think Keith has already died several times.

@LondonLee I'd totally believe that he is now a Disney Animatronic.

@Bittersweet Nah, every time he dies they just revivify him with ancient necromancy.
