I was watching a live concert of Rod Stewart yesterday. His voice has detoriated a lot compare to Mick. But his musicians are much powerful than STONES

That's because like most soloists, he hires in a younger backing band. It's not a fair comparison really.

Powerful, in what way?

When I hear MR, even in concert today, I'm not thinking of polished younger musicians.

I know what's being said. Go listen to Brian Wilson's group, and then listen to Mike Love's 'Beach Boys'. Brian has incredibly competent musicians and singers. (And he adds Al Jardine, Dave Marks-early Beach Boy, and Blondie Chaplin to the mix) It wouldn't have hurt the Stones to try and add some talented musicians to their mix, as long as the 4 left are still on stage. Having artists that enhance the Stones music, like Nicky, Mick T. and Bill Wyman used to, would be appreciated.

And Dave Marks can play Chuck Berry licks like a mofo!

As much as I love Brian Wilson and his band, this is not a fair or accurate statement. The "Mike and Bruce" Beach Boys though a smaller unit, contain sharp, top notch musicians. There is some crossover between the two groups btw.

I saw Rod a couple of years ago. And man, his backing band sucked. All so clinical and boring. They sound cheap, like a band you’d hire for a commercial.

Don't we have enough side musicians on stage?

And when there were more, didn't everybody complain?

IMO Rod Stewart has become embarrassing. I will always consider him, because there was a time he was beautiful. Those early albums, and the the Faces are some of the best music I know. And great singing.
At my job I hang with a bunch of young guns, and I have to educate them on music LOL. Rod comes on, and I try to explain that he was a great one in his time. But his 'current' music is like Sweet'n Low: saccharine, passe`, trite.

Its one of the saddest stories in rock. For 10 years, he was basically perfect. Then in like 1976 he never did another good thing again. Its absurd. And its amazing that first 10 years was SO good that it can overshadow 40 bad ones. He's as lite and Vegas as you can get now, with songs that were SO good.

Rod's music has given me so much joy that I truly can't say a bad word about him.

His band in the late 70's must be one of r'n'r greatest bands ever (any band with Appice and Chen must deserve that title).

In his autobio (highly recommended) Rod gives full account of what he went through with his voice: no surprise it has deteriorated, we should be surprised he can still sing at all!

I don't think it's necessary to compare Sir Roderick with the Stones. Sir Roderick has always been more of a showman/entertainer. Like Sir Elton for instance. Nothing wrong with that.
After all they are all in showbiz. There is one valid comparison to make though. They are both nostalgia acts by now playing mostly 40-55 year old hits.

He’s slowly morphing into Barry Manilow.

is his band more powerful than a speeding locomotive? Or do they just break more strings?

I think for the last 25 years ago, you would put Mick into the showman /entertainer classification also.
This is based on his preference to tour against creating new music.
Choice? Probably not, if the creative spark has dried up, what else can the poor boy do?

Van Morrison is certainly in both camps snd is probably an exception amongst his Peers.
