The Rolling Stones Celebrate Their 50th Anniversary: Not 'Out of Time'

by at . Comments

50 years ago today, The Rolling Stones hit the stage at The Marquee Club in London, England. It was their very first show, and they were billed as "The Rollin' Stones." 50 years, a ton of drugs, and one 'G' later, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and Charlie Watts are still making music.

Jagger closed out the last season of SNL with an amazing tribute to Kristen Wiig, Richards recently wrote an award-winning autobiography, and the band is rehearsing in preparation for a possible world tour.

Jagger and Richards are almost 70 years old, and the band has been around for as long as Axl Rose has been alive. Rose is as washed up as whale skeleton, but somehow the Stones are still kickin' it.

What do you think? Are the Stones too old to be rocking? Should they hang up their instruments? Or do they still make their tight pants look good?

Should the Rolling Stones Call it Quits?

Dude The Stones are awesome!! Truly one of the greatest rock bands of all time along with the Beatles, Floyd, Zeppelin and The Who. And they have withstood the test of time with millions of fans world wide ranging in age from people in their 60's to as young as their teens and 20's. They still got it and can still do it so Rock on Rolling Stones!!
