And The Light Shines

Just a post script to the last post...

Earlier I wrote that it's a bit sad to watch an aging rocker, that it's a young person's game.

I sometimes thought that we went to see people like The Stones to see if they might die onstage, kind of like going to a NASCAR race to see the crashes.

No longer.

There's a segment in Shine A Light where someone is interviewing a young Mick Jagger and asks him if he can see himself doing this when he's sixty.

"Absolutely!" says Mick.

And he proved himself right.

They're doing it because they love doing it.  The joy is just as fresh as when they were kids.  Our morbid reactions are our own problem.

Rock on, boys.
