My 25 year old granddaughter has just told me (now 81!) that she has booked to take me to see the Rolling Stones on May 29th! Not sure how to reward her!!

Don't fade away.

Thank her by saying that she's got great taste.

{could've been Daniel O'Donnell or Barry Manilow}.

So how old are the Stones these days then? They must be pushing eighty themselves

Average age of the boys is about 75.

My grandson (aged 4 at the time) saw them on he TV and asked why are those skeletons were playing music on stage?


Paint it Black was always my favourite Stones single.

FE, put on your rose-tinted spectacles and half-close your eyes ;o]

Forum Editor, boys rhymes with noise and I'm pretty sure there will be lots of that, I would have to take both hearing aids out to feel comfortable ;o}

One day you will regard 75’s as “boys “ !! There seems to be life in the old dogs yet! I think my last outing to such an event was to see Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald at ( I think)!Olympia in the late 50’s or early 60’s !! The Stones were not a huge favourite of mine but one has to admire their stamina . Maybe I’ll get some satisfaction from it.
