Good morning, everybody!

People disagreeing on almost everything,
That’s pretty much how I describe my chosen career.
* Also, now that they’re all 70 or so, I really wish the Stones would play more outstanding tunes like this one. Get back to the roots, guys. Be necessary again to our understanding of what music is, what it has been, what it will always be. And, while you’re at it, go out with some counter-culture dignity.
And I say this as someone who’s been a Rolling Stones fanatic since before I could talk. I so badly want them to be relevant again because I am convinced down to my marrow that they still have it in them if only they’d rise above their jaded, faded, tiresomely self-referential “Star Star” schtick. Just listen to today’s song for proof.
In other words, get the heck off Les Champs-Elysees and get back to 2120 South Michigan Avenue.
