Mick, Keith and Ronnie ought to call themselves "The Stones" when they tour.



Drop the "Rolling" part of the name, and then just keep rollin' on...

Whether either of them are "truly" what they call themselves is debatable, and the right answer probably depends on who you ask.

Really? So that's the bottom of the barrel, just playing under the name. That's like going to Vegas and seeing the Temptations playing in one lounge, and another Temptations playing in another. The only surviving member is Otis Williams and he doesn't perform, and I don't think he sang lead on any of their songs. I guess you can continue on long as you have the singer, and maybe one of the lead musicians. The Doors weren't so lucky.

No! When I attended Hyde Park, i attended a most fabulous Rolling Stones concert. As long as there’s Mick and Keith, in my opinion, it’s the band.

Not that long ago the mantra was, "No Charlie--No Rolling Stones!"

I'm not saying they shouldn't perform. they ought to just adjust the name.

What would you want them to call the act if it were down to Mick and Ronnie?

The Rolling Bones? (enter Perry Mason)
The TRolling Stones?
The Tolling Tones? (ticket prices ...)

But what about those 14 Faces Songs now? Have they been recorded? Is there a release date? Or do they want to wait until the new Stones album is out?

Those are just corny tribute band names. If you insist on a change, why not call themselves the (surviving) Cockroaches? The last show they did under that name was pretty good.

(Yes, I've got the El Mocambo show on repeat play at the moment).

Why? ... very humorous that some have these rules that they come up with on their own, and act like everyone should know them and abide accordingly.

right but if they lose the rolling part they are no longer touring as the rolling stones

and they probably can't fill stadiums as "the stones"

which means they won't tour anymore since at this point it's clear that mick wants to play stadiums not smaller venues

same thing for the mythical new album

you think they'll sell as many copies with "the stones" stamped on it as opposed to "the rolling stones"?

“The Stones” has been synonymous with “The Rolling Stones” for so long it wouldn’t matter if they went on a stadium tour or sold albums under that name. I bet they could even sell out stadiums with just the Lips logo!

As for the band continuing after Charlie, we don’t know what conversations happened before Charlie passed. He recommended Jordan and gave the go ahead from what I recall, so what we think doesn’t matter. It was decision taken within the band as to what would happen.

Simplify it down to:

*Stones



*only two original members



People moan about The Who calling themselves the Who w/only two original members left, so the same standards could be applied to the *Stones.

Which Ian did fantastically.

In the vein of ABBA it seems. The point is to cash in. Rod can stick his toupée somehwere dark. He neglected the band when it was still alive and well. Now it's dead, just like Rod's voice.

OK, I'm as jaded as the next guy, but if you think Rod or Ronnie are trying to 'cash in' with the Faces...I mean...think about it!

Rod is a shadow of his former self sadly. His concerts seem to be more about scantily clad young women than music nowadays.

I saw a gig on television recently where he was quite good. His voice was better than expected.

thumbs up Rod's voice at one point seemed almost completely shot but... whether with intervention or just good fortune ... it seems to have improved quite a bit in recent times .

Sure, a few songs, maybe a tour, but Ian wasn't a permanent replacement, nor was he going to write exciting new Doors songs.

His voice sounds shot there. Not quite singing in spots, more like talking through the lyrics. The band sounds great. What if they sound better than the 'Faces'? Rod is 77, and doesn't look like he's put in any of the time to be in physical shape like Mick does.

Well that would be good news. I saw them on tour headlining with Bush and STP as openers. Cult were bad, mainly because of Ian. I was there primarity to see the Cult. STP were good but Bush/Gavin were sublime...completely unexpected for me.

I just did. That video is from less than three weeks ago. You mean he was in even worse shape, and 'sang' even worse before?

I caught D21C in Edmonton and thought it was a fantastic tribute to the Doors. Pretty much as good as it could get, without resurrecting or cloning Jim. One of those acts that I wish I could see again, but am thankful I saw once.

Rod Stewart: 'This is the last big tour for me'

As he comes to the end of an era with his final rock'n'roll arena shows in Ireland, Rod Stewart talks music highlights, Celtic and future plans 



“Six months ago we were close to having something special,” admits Stewart. “I was with Ronnie, we were playing the old Faces songs and they were brilliant. You can hear it’s the Faces but as you get older your voice gets a little lower. I said: ‘Ronnie I can’t sing them anymore’. I told him we can tune down and suggested he get me, him and Kenny in the studio with a really good bass player.”
