Rolling Stones Roll into London

Posted: Nov. 29th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

For the first time in 5 years, the Rolling Stones have rolled into London for their 50th anniversary bash as part of a 5 city tour. With a sound sure to make nostalgia burst from the hearts of long term fans in ways no other artist could manage, the aging but still very young performers showed the world that they've still got it.

The verdict is in: The Rolling Stones are back. They may look old, but they still sound young.

That was the consensus Monday as Britain's rock critics responded to the Stones 50th anniversary bash Sunday night, the first of five shows to commemorate their half century of rhythm and blues-tinged rock. It was the band's first London performance in five years, and their own advancing years had led some to be skeptical that they could still perform at the highest level.

They were led by the seemingly ageless Mick Jagger, whose strutting style has not been dimmed, and backed by brilliant guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood and the energetic drumming of Charlie Watts, who is now past 70 but shows no sign of slowing down.
