How to answer people when they ask, "Why do you go see the Rolling Stones"?
Posted by: Sockers56 ()

I know this has been covered before, somewhere, but I get people at work who have never seen the Stones and they ask why I like the Stones & why I continue to travel to multiple shows. How do iorr.org fans answer this question? You still hear the same from people,i.e.,"Wow, they are so old". Then you hear the old stale jokes....

I actually had someone ask 'Who?' I just walked away. Yeah, usually it's the same old 'They're so ooooold.' Then I look at the middle-aged lard butt standing in front of me who can barely get off the sofa and say something snarky.

Because I've been a fan for 46 years and every time I see them, it makes me very happy.

I don't. I've seen them enough. Paid enough. If I want to see them I'll wait for my library to get whatever next product they put out. Ole.

I always tell them it's a cheap thrill – since I alway buy LD ticket. Their usual answer is 'wow, the Stones for 30 GBP (or 69 Euro) for pit, I wish I'd done that, too'

Increasingly, that is a very good question without a lot of logical answers

Mountain climbers are always asked the question:

"Why do you climb the mountain?"

They always reply:

"Because it is there!"

Same answer goes for The Rolling Stones, but in addition:

"Because they are the greatest rock'n'roll band in the world!"

The Rolling Stones are the Mount Everest of rock music.

Because I enjoy the Rolling Stones, the show the music, Mick Keith, Charlie, Ron. They make me feel good. I love that band!

I like to see how different each show can be even when they're basically the same songs, I enjoy seeing how the the song progress/change/mature from one show to the next. You never know which show is going to be extra hot!

I'm glad I got in to the Rolling Stones when I was young because I've had a lifetime of enjoyment.

And I know, It's only rock and roll but...

Greatest band of all time making millions of people happy over 50+ years. If they could go on forever the demand would be the same 100 years from now, they are totally timeless.

The first time I saw them live was 6 years ago, I was 17. I wanted to go because I like their music and I really thought they were a reat live band based on what I had seen and listened so I had to witness it with my own eyes and ears, it felt like I shouldn't miss the chance to attend a gig once they came.

Also I thought "Maybe it could be their last show in my town, or even their last tour ever. Yes, they're old, but it's still the Rolling Stones"

They are an indispensable part of my life now for 56 years and when I share time with them during concerts it makes me very, very, very happy! They are simply so bl**dy great! Try for yourself and you won't forget it ever.

I was told by a long term fan in October 1997 before I saw them the first time in Charlotte, NC

"It will always be the most expensive concert ticket you buy but you won't walk away from the show feeling cheated....they for sure don't phone it in"

True to this day.

1. Best music ever
2. Best live show ever
3. Best fans ever

I describe it as being a the greatest concert of your life with a circus also going on and the most rabid (in a good way) fans one will ever see.
