Advice for the Rolling Stones

I like the Rolling Stones. I like their hits, mostly, because I feel they’re still good after all these years. And, like many of you, I find the fact that they’re still touring somewhat odd.

This tour, the Stones are touring behind a Greatest Hits album – one with the obligatory two new songs. I actually like this more than previous tours, which were behind new albums that seemed lacking.

My advice to the Stones, then, is this: don’t release new albums. Don’t even bother. It’s just not worth it. Concentrate on just one song. Put out something as mind-blowing as your 60s hits, instead of catchy but otherwise forgettable songs. I’d love to hear another “Ruby Tuesday”, something that truly stands the test of time in mainstream music.

Of course, if the Stones feel they aren’t up to writing one superior song, maybe they should consider doing something else. Like writing a paper on Progeria.
