Mister President, "You can't always git wot yuh waant"! (And "Time is NOT on Your Side")

Ti-i-i-i-ime is on my side. Oh, yes it is!

Man, I can't believe these grandpas are still going so strong after everything they've been through. My father lived a plain, boring and clean lifestyle, and Keith Richards has outlived him living a life of drugs, sex and rocknroll. Life is so unfair.

They've come a long way since Eel Pie Island, that's for sure.

These guys are all older than Donald Trump. Just consider that. Actually, as a person who enjoyed the Stones in their heyday, I think it’s almost a kind of insult to their own legacy and to their great music that they still continue to “perform” that music today. My God, leave it alone! Are young people attending a Stones concert now expected to believe they are experiencing anything whatsoever of what the Stones or their contemporaries were 40 or 50 years ago?

Just awful.

These guys are incredible.

Ron Wood is younger than Trump, the baby of the band.

I watched/followed/bought music from the Stones since the 1960's and I'm happy they are still playing and entertaining even if Jagger don't have the same voice has 40 years ago.

Dylan too is still Blowin in the Wind at 78.

Whilst I don't rate their stuff since Undercover of the Night, I don't mind that they're still going. They're doing what they love.

After Thin Lizzy, they're probably one of the greatest rock bands in the history of rock, ever.

The Stones basically started out as a rockabilly/blues rock band and they morphed it all into hard rock, a feat of far-reaching circumstances. They are one of the most influential and inspiring bands of all time. Their influence has led to several genres of rock - from heavy metal, glam/glitter, punk, funk, new wave, grunge, alternative, even country rock and more. They have still kept rolling, never stopped touring and they've kept on making albums. They have embraced the styles they influenced and other styles that they didn't - psychedelic, folk rock, reggae, disco, soul, and even rap (sort of). Long after their contemporaries have stumbled into dinosaur deaths or have frozen into myth (Beatles) the Stones have kept rolling on and selling out tours. They've outlasted the Grateful Dead, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Rush. Only the Beach Boys have lasted as long, as well a few original rock solo artists.  

When it comes to today's rock'n'roll, many roads lead straight to the Rolling Stones.

Memoryfix,

Ive attended the Stones most recent 5 world tours and they are incredible - it seems each better than the last.
