Mick Jagger Mania at the NFL


The Stones at Ford Field last night

I just don’t get it. Really.

Watching the Stones perform to legions of screaming teenage fans, I felt like I was watching some sort of mass hypnosis.

Jack says he saw them in concert back in ’72, and says last night was all about nostalgia.

But for what? Somebody ‘splain it to me.

    Creepy, creepy, I’m wondering if The Rolling Stones have pulled a reverse Dorian Gray. That the unlined youthful portraits are hidden in some vault. One song I never liked, one song I have never heard and one song garbled beyond recognition. Time to retire guys.

    I always have a similar reaction. What’s the big deal? Maybe I’m just slightly too young to get it? Those guys are decrepit!

    What a bunch of idiots you all are. The Rolling Stones are very much still good performers and musicians. They OUT perform any of the stupid little teeny bopper bands that you kids listen to. I’m only 28, and Mick Jagger is my hero. I hope I can still move around as good as he can when I am his age. He has the energy of a man half his age. They are still popular because they WERE AND ARE A GREAT, LEGENDARY BAND. I’d rather watch genuine musicians than a bunch of sickening black guys with gold teeth grab themselves and call women hoe’s to a bunch of computer generated sounds. Don’t like older men who are more energetic than you are? DON’T WATCH, BITCHES!

  4. I gotta go with Chris on this one. I have seen the Stones several times, all throughout the years, and they are as tight today as before. People don’t understand that they were never like these current bands that are soundboard-ed to death until their actual voices and music is all digitized. They have a raw sound that was the beginning of all modern music. Sorry, just mho
