Rolling Stones call it quits
Having read Keith Richards biography recently, I have a better sense of the band. Having been involved in music for such a long time, its hard to know how people deal with fame. And for Keith, who is obsessed with the blues, how he dealt with the changes is fascinating. I like the Stones, but have never really felt the need to see them. But they have the songs to fall back on. Even more so than Prince, they can just roll out the hits.
To last for 50 years is a major achievement. They put in the work, they have reaped the rewards. And so one of the major live bands in the world departs. Who will be around to take up the mantle.
