If you’re younger than, say, 70, you might have noticed The Rolling Stones are back on tour.
It happens every three or four years. The self-described “World’s Greatest Rock ’n’ Roll Band” long ago figured out that’s about the right interval for being able to fire up a giant front-end loader, drive it through various American cities and scoop up fans’ big-cash money.
The extra-special one-time-only selling point this time around: The surviving Stones are celebrating the group’s 50th anniversary … which actually was in 2012.
The four principal band members are in their late 60s and early 70s. And while time has been on their side, the age-related jokes are brutal. On the Internet I’ve already seen spoof set lists including “(I Can’t Get No) Circulation,” “Help Me Up,” “It’s Only Dulcolax But I Like It” and “Let’s Take a Nap Together.”
