Doom and Gloom.
Drop what you’re doing and listen to this:
This is how you have a 50 year career…by WRITING GOOD SONGS. Whatever else the Stones may be, they are expert songwriters first and foremost. They didn’t win one of those stupid American Idol-type shows, they didn’t write one good song and milk it for decades, and they’re not a nostalgia act (like The Eagles or Roger Waters [sorry Roger.]). They’re a frigging BAND who writes good songs!
What a novel concept.
