I just got off a tube where I sat opposite a couple around my age with what I reckon must have been an 11 year old son and a 13 year old daughter, presumably on half term holiday.
The girl was sporting a Rolling Stones tour tee-shirt. Now if I'm correct the children's, grandparents would have been listening to Exile on Mainstreet for the first time around the time the parents were born.
Is it just me or is it really time for the Stones to just admit that, it's past mossy and moved into fungal territory. I mean I know they're the world's biggest tax evading rock whore's but there comes a time when everyone just has to have the good grace to realise that when you wrote these lines this may actually apply to you on stage:
When your spine is cracking and your hands, they shake,
heart is bursting and you butt's gonna break.
Your woman's cussing, you can hear her scream,
you feel like murder in the first degree.
Ain't nobody slowing down no way,
ev'rybody's stepping on their accelerator,
don't matter where you are,
ev'rybody's gonna need a ventilator.
