I've started a discussion over at Burning Love? about the Rolling Stones, one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time, and a band that sits quite high on my all-time list. Even as I hit the "publish" button, I wasn't quite sure of what I wrote. I am truly torn by all of this.
I want to like what I've been hearing from this 50th Anniversary tour, but it all sounds so forced. Slow and painful. Perfunctory. It makes me unhappy.
Yet so many Stones fans are watching and listening with such excitement. What are they hearing or not hearing? What am I not hearing?
