seen them live?: Um, I would pretty much give my left arm for that. My parents had that experience and it’s one I would love to have.
The Stones are the greatest rock band in the world. I seriously won’t bend on this point. For me, nobody tops their amazing work and their utter insanity, and they could play circles around most artists. They’ve been played in my household since I was in diapers, and I wouldn’t trade that for anything. They’re the very definition of cool, the epitome of wonderful. The Stones are forever my favourite band, since I was a little girl. I’ve had other “favourite bands” but the Stones… well, they’re just everlasting.
