The Stones were brilliant, I had every album before their "re-invention". I cannot choose a best one because each defines the moment. From "Little Red Rooster" to "Street fighting Man" to "Her Satanic Majesty's Request" to "Brown Sugar" sheer genius. Mick himself should be congratulated on defining a working class ethos on middle class origins. He saw music for what it is, a way to gain celebrity, money and status, despite having all three to begin with. Yet here he is at 65, still planning the next tour. What we "originals" loved about him was the pure p**s take he took, and he is still taking it lol. Picking a fave Stones record denigrates the influence they took from the Blues and other black genres, and made their "own". Mick, having the intelligence that he does, simply saw a niche in the market and exploited it.. Power to him, but I really have no desire to see a man of his age reap in yet more money needlessly, it smacks of huge ego, and a "Dorian Grey" fixation.
Retire Mick, it is not attractive, let us fans revel in what the band was, not what it has become, a nostalgia trip for those who were not there when it happened.
