The Rolling Stones’ delayed tour is back on the road. Not the tour they delayed after Keith Richards fell out of a coconut tree, but the one delayed because Mick Jagger had a heart attack. If you’re a boomer of advanced years and decayed taste, all this is no doubt a big deal, your last chance to see some of the last icons of the original and brief Rock Era, before you or they kick the bucket. Ladies and gentlemen, the greatest rock ’n’ roll band in the world, the Rolling Stones. Except they aren’t the Stones. They haven’t been the Stones for years. They’re not even the Counterfeit Stones,

One gets the feeling that Luke doesn't like the Stones. They can do their thing until they're rolled onto stage in wheelchairs, I don't care.

Cool stuff that I never knew. Bigger Beatles fan, but the Stones were a moving force that also changed the culture.

I lost interest in the Stones decades ago having seen them in 1973 and then again in 1983. They are spectacle, well oiled but generally monotonous. But, hey, everybody has to make a living.

Sour grapes much. Of course the early Stones were the best, it's that way for just about everyone. But I love the Stones, old age, wrinkles and all. They are still the greatest.

I will never forget one night, watching David Letterman back in the late 80's or 90's (when he was still funny). His Top Ten List for the evening was "Top Ten Rejected Names for the Latest Rolling Stones Tour". Number one? "The Rolling Stones... LIVE! Plus... Keith Richards" They have looked like death warmed over for decades...

The 70's albums contained a lot of classics. Tattoo You was also a terrific album, but probably the last one I cared for. The 1981 tour that supported it was great, too. I saw "The Stones" that year and they played for three hours. Such energy, and they had played the day before at the same huge venue. Brian Jones had turned into a sullen, erratic cancer upon the group. Having an entire article devoted to the premise that anything produced after he left the group was stale and lacking in innovation is quite unfair to the rest of the band.

The writer is throwing stones at the Stones. I lost interest in the Rolling Stones after their third album. I'm just not into Jurassic Rock but then make millions while you still can. Let's keep the earth green for Keith Richards.

If you really want to feel old think of this to the graduating High School Class of 2019 Their music is Rap, their parents music is Seattle grit like Nirvana or hopeless pop like the Spice Girls to them Guns and Roses was a bunch of has beens.. Their grandparents music was vapid droning disco and the Sex Pistols. The music of the Rolling Stones and the Beatles belongs to their Great Grandparents. I saw the stones once, I think it was the in Philly in 1981. Heres rolling stones opening review "The 180,000 people who turned out to see the opening shows of the Rolling Stones‘ 1981 concert tour at Philadelphia’s John F. Kennedy Stadium couldn’t have cared less that the band was out of shape and two or three times older than many of those in the audience." In my opinion everybody should have gotten their money back, it was awful. The only saving grace was that George Thoroughgood was the opner and he brought the house down.

Don't know about the rest of you, but I for one am getting a little sick and tired of the younger generations sniping at us older folks. At least we had actual music to enjoy, not the rapper hate fest, the slutty women posing as singers and all the rest. Our music seems to last forever and is still good to listen to, whereas the music of today is in one ear and out the other then forgotten. If you ever get curious about social contributions that generations make, try looking up the top 25 contributions Boomers made vs contributions of Gen X and Millennials. You will be shocked to learn that they have only contributed cynicism, and sorry but that is not our fault.

I think the Stones did some of the absolute best of the best during a brief time when every month saw more great music released than most if not all subsequent years. That said their career has managed to run all this timer on the fumes left from the 60's which itself is quite some form of accomplishment.

Have to imagine that the Rolling Stones have been living on past glories for decades. Not necessarily a bad thing. Just means they peaked in the 70s and 80s. Its a testament to their popularity that people still come out to see them. We should be so lucky.

President Trump's entry/exit song 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' off of the 'Let it Bleed' album is perfect for him. I think one reason progressives are turning on the Stones is that no one connected with the Stones has made a fuss over him using it. Heck, he probably pays a royalty for every time it is played at one of his appearances! And this writer saying 'Honkey Tonk Women' is 'the Stones first bad single - man, that was a great song! I spent many a quarter in a juke box playing HTW (and two other random songs).

Saw an Adam Ant backstage interview during an outdoor festival a few years back. He assumed that the parents (i.e., his contemporaries that he expected to see in the audience) must have been in the back, sitting in lawn chairs, because there were only kids in the crowd. More surprising, they knew all the lyrics - "which I suppose is a good thing 'cause I don't always remember 'em, myself, these days." Clever, and probably well spoken.

When I was a kid, I collected baseball cards. I grew up in an isolated and not especially large town, but it did have one comic book and baseball card shop that I spent a lot of time in, salivating over the Mark McGwire rookie card in the display case. I couldn’t afford it — it was worth maybe $5 at the time — so I would usually just buy a pack of Topps or Donruss cards for 50 cents and hope I got lucky in what I found. Obviously, I didn’t get as lucky finding the cards for my favorite players as I would have liked.

After being acquitted in May 1987 of all 10 counts of larceny and fraud — charges that some said were politically motivated — in connection with a New York City subway project, former Reagan administration Labor Secretary Ray Donovan turned to the Bronx prosecutor and famously asked, “Which office do I go to, to get my reputation back?” That same thought surely has crossed the mind of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh more than once in the year since he barely survived a politically motivated, evidence-free smear campaign by liberal activists and Senate Democrats aimed at blocking his elevation to the high court.

U.S. Attorney John Durham intends to interview former CIA Director John Brennan as part of his investigation into U.S. intelligence agencies’ activities in the Trump-Russia probe, according to NBC News. Brennan told NBC News, where he is an analyst, that both he and James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence, are sought for interviews with Durham’s investigators. The interviews, should they occur, would signal that Durham is expanding his investigation. Attorney General William Barr appointed Durham to oversee an inquiry into U.S. agencies’ Trump-related intelligence-gathering activities earlier this year. Barr said he was not satisfied with official explanations about the origins of the investigation into possible ties

Just when you thought the Democratic primary race could not get any nuttier (Bill de Blasio’s hapless quest sets a high bar), along comes Hillary Clinton accusing Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of being a Russian agent. Or, words to that effect. More accurately, in a podcast hosted by former Obama apparatchik David Plouffe, Clinton said candidate Gabbard is “the favorite of the Russians” and suggested Moscow was supporting her bid through fake social media postings. Since Gabbard is only polling at 1.2 percent, according to the Real Clear Politics average, Russia doesn’t seem to be helping much. More important, there is zero evidence that any such meddling has occurred.

President Trump is often described as a bull in a china shop, but one wonders: what, exactly, is the china shop? The Democrats have debased our public life to the point where it is more apt to say that Trump is a bull trying to defend himself in a slaughterhouse. You could adduce instances of the Democrats’ lack of the most basic decency every day; here are just two for today. First, Senator Rand Paul and a friend were eating lunch when they were confronted and harassed by demented Democrats. This is the sort of thing that never happens to politicians on the other side of the aisle. Maybe it should:

Trump will win reelection in 2020 for three reasons: First, the voters are always reluctant to replace a president in a time of peace and prosperity, regardless of his perceived flaws. Second, a transparently partisan impeachment vote in the House followed by a fair trial and acquittal in the Senate, will seriously damage the Democratic brand while sparking an internal civil war between its moderate and leftwing factions. Finally, this ideological conflict within the opposition party will result in the nomination of a weak compromise candidate to face a vindicated and politically stronger incumbent President awash in cash and supported by highly motivated voters.

When Jay Fielden, late of Esquire, announced his departure as editor-in-chief this past May, he did it in foppish style. An Instagram post showed him leaving Hearst Tower dressed in a safari jacket and dark sunglasses, designer bags in hand. The photo, which fastidiously aped a famous shot of Jack Nicholson, was roundly mocked on social media. But it served as a fitting, if unwitting, symbol of how the Esquire of today stands in comparison with the Esquire of an earlier era—as a self-conscious echo, a superficial imitation of its former self. Nicholson, after all, was merely living his life; Fielden was playing pretend.
