    Is there anything sillier looking than a bunch of wrinkled old men with thinning hair trying to pretend they're not bored as they fatten their bank account?

    What, does Jagger need the money? Steven Tyler having a hard time making ends meet? Ron Wood eating dog food? (talk about somebody who looks like a walking corpse)

    There are some exceptions, like Dylan, who's still capable of creative genius (I've about worn out Modern Times). Or Clapton and JJ Cale's The Road to Escondido, which is really terrific in spots. And Carlos Snatana can keep playing until he's dead and he won't stand still for a day. He isn't running around making a buck playing Oye como va for nostalgia fans.

    But sitting through craggy-faced old Mick telling us all about how he can't get no satisfaction is ludicrous.
