A Keith-less Stones could not exist. I wouldn't go watch them or listen to them...zero interest...and I'm a Taylor junkie....Who, by the way, would be a great re-addition to the band for the rest of their tenure...

No he shouldn't.

Next daft proposal!

Yes he should. It would be the noble thing to do. He could still guest and do his two songs per show.
If Keith wasn't playing great this tour, I might agree with you. Actually, I probably wouldn't because you can't have the Stones without Keith, but your argument would be stronger if he sucked this tour. But sorry, he kicked ass and I have more fun seeing him have fun and kick ass than anyone else on stage. The guy has been through it all and he really is the coolest rock star out there. If he can still play like this, he stays in the band:



OK, but what will the so called guitar experts around here say about this? One suggested he could teach a child to play the opening to SMU.

Sometimes it can be pretty painful that anonymous persons can just sign in and write the greatest nonsense on earth.

Not that I do appreciate critics and comments from fans who don't like the Stones anymore who call it quits because of ticketprices or whatsoever.

But TheLoneRangerRidesAgain is only creating useless threads without any knowledge. I just can't understand why we all reply to this dumm comment.

We just should stop to reply and the thread would tumble down in only some minutes. And if he Registers new under another Name we sure find out it's him, because of the next dummy threat he opens.

Why can't he open up an own Homepage or blog called Shoot the lone ranger!

I can picture Bob Clearmountain sitting in the mobile truck at Hyde Park with a clipboard for him to make notes on which parts in the show need fixing later on. Show starts, 1 second later he throws his clipboard in frustration. That didn't take long, did it.

But in all seriousness, TheLoneRangerRidesAgain, it wasn't Keith's fault. It was the scarf. THE SCARF! And the lighting. and too many people were screaming. And the wind was too strong for Charlie. And various other reasons. But it wasn't Keith's fault.

As painful as it is the intro to SMU just can't be ignored. I have been waiting for Keith to at least explain what happened in his own words. I don't buy the scarf theory. Maybe it was the ghost of John Lennon?

Without Keith, no Stones!! Just leave his guitar out, there's nothing left. Their music wouldn't have any power! Give him a bit of a break here! Keith is no Clapton or Knopfler! Keith plays with a certain feel and NOBODY can play like that. I agree that he doesn't play like he used to. The Stones have never been flawlees live but that's part of their charm. It's only rock and roll!

OK, but can you explain what happened the other night with SMU? This is an awful way to start a show.

The answer to your pondering, which I italicised, is that he will sign in under current multiple names and have a conversation with himself over and over and over, quote after quote after quote, most without any reason whatsoever - there's zero relevance to it to begin with. And that's part of what keeps the inanity, er, threads alive. For a little while anyway, until he announces another drivel's worth of 'I'm signing off until the next full moon of October' or whatever nose picking prattle comes out of that broken nog.

EXCITING!! Very Popular Opionion: You And All Your Names Should Quit Posting Such Inanity And Stay Away Forever!

Funny coming from a fellow (YOU) that has had multiple user names. What do they call people like you? Oh, that's right, they call them hypocrites.

I have never had multiple user names, only one at a time. You have and do.

Doesn't matter that you used them one at a time. The fact is that you have had multiple user names. Hypocrite!

Nope.

You use several of yours at one time. My names have been ONLY one at A time ie no other name (like in your case, names) functioning at one time.

It's astounding how you insist on being so ignorant all the time.

It's obvious you are the ignorant one here. This is why we can't have a reasonable discussion. Never could.

Rock and roll,

It's not nonsense at all. Great football players retire all of the time, but the teams roll on. Brett Favre was replaced in Green Bay. I would say that The Green Bay Packers are as much of an institution as the Rolling Stones.

I did not saw this concert in person, but the few wrong seconds of Start Me Up are not a big tragedy, in my opinion. I remember as I saw the Stones in L.A. in 2006, Mick had voice problems in the first 3 songs, that was really a pain for the ears. Then they played She Was Hot and his voice came back.

Only the blindest of the blind would not admit that Keith has lost a major step or two. All the notes in between are missing, like the teeth on an old comb. Maybe it is time for Keith to hang it up, but as long as there are fans who will pay to seem him stand there, he must not feel like quitting yet. And at this stage, no Keith, no Stones. The time to replace him in the band is never. I was unimpressed when I saw him the first night in Los Angeles. Then something came roaring out of the furnace dark and dangerous for Jumping Jack Flash and Keith was great.

If you don't like the Stones live anymore, don't see them. Mick is still great, Ronnie is steady, Charlie has moments, and Keith is torn and frayed. They have a boatload of side musicians and singers of varying quality. That's it. Don't like, don't go see them. And relax, Bob Clearmountain is already working on that opening to Start Me Up.

The funniest part of this thread is the use of the word "Unpopular"... How is this an unpopular opinion at this site?

Obivously the Lone Ranger is a new user around here but should feel right at home after reading some older posts which have been voicing this (I'd say) very popular opinion around here for years.

FWIW: Although it's a popular opinion around here, I couldn't disagree with it more if I made an effort. In my hypothetical world, I'd be far more apt to check out a post-Stones KR show than I would any of the other band members (except maybe Charlie's ABCD shows).

Peace,
Mr DJA

Well, if it isn't unpopular why am I getting ripped to shreds? Could it be that most on this site think he is performing at an adequate level?

That's the reaction you were wanting, wasn't it? You set up the thread using the word "unpopular" didn't you? If you would have set up the thread as "Popular Opinion" you would have got the support of all the like minded experts showing you how they had that opinion first. As it is, all of those who agree with you are keeping silent while you take the fall out for sticking you neck out first. Maybe you should start another thread so you could argue in one and agree in the other.

Regarding your second question, which you seem to think has something to do with people disagreeing with your original post, I'm not sure what most on this site think. If I had to guess, I'd be willing to bet that most people would give him a mark of "adequate" or better. I could be wrong.

Peace,
Mr DJA

The question is simply silly, what do you think would happen if Keith stepped out. Will the Stones (without Keith) return as a working unit and roll on for ten more years with great new songs and lots of concerts? They will play some more concerts, and then...they will call it a day.

Musicians make mistakes. It happens.
If they're not making mistakes from time to time, it usually means they are playing it safe and that can be just plain boring.

All of the remaining Stones have been responsible for their fair share of mistakes, some resulting in massive train-wrecks.
Why should Keith be the only one to quit?

His playing in 2013 may be nowhere near as good as it was in 1972 but it is far better than it was in 2005-2007, and often better than 2002-2003.
Good enough reason to keep going if you ask me.

When I saw them at the o2 in 2007 I felt very let down, and I thought it may be time to hang it up. when they played there last year I felt so proud that they had got their shit together that much.

Balls to legacy, all that matters is now!
