    I'm pretty sure Keith Richards died years ago, and they're feeding him human flesh to keep him from going on a zombie rampage.

    The tits would be if you could catch them when they do the real small clubs. Usually no advance notice and all the tickets never make it out for public sale.

    Its definitely a nostalgia act, but they seem to put on a good show. Given that they havent released a new record since 2005 (which was actually not too bad), and they never improv or expound on their songs to much, it'll probably be pretty rote, but I would hardly call them an embarrassment.

    Thats what would be holding me back. I think their tickets are always triple digits, and Im already spending a good amount of cash on the Grateful Dead Farewell shows.

    Theyre not an embarassment musically, not at all. Maybe its ageism on my part but people shouldnt be up there after 30 IMO.

    I can't stand the thought of Jagger up on stage doing his peacock walk. The dude might slip a disc.

    I get what you're saying, but I dont really agree anymore. I still think that older musicians can still tear it down. Most (nearly all) of the bands i listen to are over thirty. The fact that they can still be creative, exciting, and progressive, makes me completely forget their age.

    Yep. They can still show the pups how its done...maybe not in the creativity dept, but certainly in showmanship.
