    I think Charlie likes being a Stone more than he lets on, and more than his poker face over the decades has shown. If he was bored with it all or wanted to play jazz instead of rock, he would have quit in the 80s like Bill Wyman did.

    Yeah, I doubt peer pressure is gonna be much of an issue in your late '70s...

    I actually read something once where one of the four (probably Charlie - no one else would be so frank, I think) said that there has to be a unanimous vote, and no one really wants to be THAT GUY that puts a stop to it.

    Just because someone has a lot of money doesn't mean he/she no longer desires more money.

    Some of the most money-grubbing people on the planet are the wealthiest!

    Still think you undersell Stones publicity stunts. These aren't shrinking violets who hide from the spotlight...

    Nor likely the desire to live the full blow rock star life of fast women and drugs, etc. Even the Stones slow down
    There just may be a reason for that even if it was correct --The Stones are actually a working existing band, whereas the Beatles, well, they aren't.

    I guess if you really wanted a valid "butt-kissing with the press" comparison between Fabs and Stones, you'd have to stick to 1963-70, but even then, it's not gonna be valid.

    The Beatles always received much, much, much higher levels of press interest than the Stones in that span. They were at different places and had different demands placed on them...

    Do you think at 78 you start hating the things you loved doing all of your life? I sure hope not.

    I’d be tired of all the traveling and hotels. By now.

    Yeah, that's why all the "uncharted territory" talk rings a little hollow. They should know the backstage of every enormodome in North America pretty well by now. It was the future Robert Plant saw for himself on the last Page-Plant tour and said "No thanks."

    I’m sure the enormodomes and hotels get old. The adulation of a stadium full of people probably doesn’t.

    "Publicity stunts" makes it sound like Mick and Keith skydived naked or something. What we're talking about are press conferences, i.e. the flatbed truck, Grand Central Station (?) 89, the Brooklyn Bridge. You have to get the word out somehow.

    Urban Jungle was simply Mick taking questions at a news conference in London. No Security 99 was announced via an electronic press kit. Zip Code was random billboards in the anointed cities.

    Plant always placed his autonomy over the bigger paycheck though, especially when it came to Page/Zep. He certainly isn't touring any less.

    Davido I got a bird that whistles I got a bird that sings

    One of the terrific things about Plant sans Page is you can go see him in smaller venues that are actually nice to go to (good sound, no major parking hassles, etc.)... increases the enjoyment of the show for me and hopefully for him as well. Would love to see the RS in the same venues.

    I think that's why the Stones favor these shorter tours now - they minimize the drudgery of touring...
