Default Reflections on The Rolling Stones

There's a bit of talk about them as they're now fifty years old as a band... also, I'm just watching Mean Streets.

Watching Mean Streets is a revelation, as you sit there going "hey... wait a minute... there was a time when The Rolling Stones weren't ****." And I say that as a Rolling Stones fan.

This is a group who produced some genuinely great music IMO, even if they didn't reinvent the wheel so much. But their last truly decent album was in 1978. That's thirty-four years of being utter shit. Once they were a rocking band, now they're more like a Rockin' band. I have all of their stuff, but I think they'd be a lot more respected if they'd been in a coach crash and all died in the mid 70s.
