Mick and Keith are a whooping 3 years older than I am so I must still be young!

... "Can't Always Get What You Want" is still one of my favorite songs of all time.
Not that I'll pay the $2-300+ for a live ticket these days.
I saw them in concert July 4th, 1975 playing to a packed stadium of 50,000 and they played that song. Mick came onstage and said; “Congratulations on your revolution”. They played a great show but the crowd of 50,000 was at least as fascinating. From ’73 to ’75 were probably their most creative years.
Tickets were a bit less money in those days.
The next day Keith Richards and Ron Wood were arrested in a little podunk town in Arkansas. Keith was charged with reckless driving and possession of a deadly weapon, a hunting knife. He posted bail on the first and beat the second. They still got to the next show with the help of a former Secret Service agent who did security details for Presidents Kennedy and Johnson.
I am not a crazy Stones fan, but they have put out a ton of good music. But as GoBlue said, I ain't payin the price for a ticket. The last time I saw the Stones was on the tour for Exile on Mainstreet. My ticket cost $5. I am not sure the exact year but it was in the early 70s.

My mom is a huge Rolling Stones fan, in fact she had a poster of them without their shirts on hanging over our washer and dryer when I was a kid. When I asked her why, she told me it was so she had something nice to look at when she did the laundry. I kept the poster and it is hanging in our laundry room now
I got to see them in concert with my parents in 1996-7? for the Bridges to Babylon tour at the Citrus bowl. It was outrageous.
