Oh sure, Jordan is a fantastic drummer and I am sure will do an admirable job on the tour, but he was always intended (as far as I know) as a placeholder until Watts was able to return. Now that this is impossible they need to simply play their guts out for the remaining dates, then retire the Rolling Stones in a dignified manner and go out on a high note.
Anything beyond this is probably doomed to replace our aural memories of performances like Ya-Ya’s with the sounds of octogenarians trying to croak out one more “classic” album. Plus, they’d probably just screw it all up with superfluous additional guitars, a strings section, a collaboration with an American Idol contestant, or perhaps a gospel choir (or any other gimmicky cliche geriatric rock bands always seem to gravitate toward in old age).
Quoted from CrazyLevi:
Yeah I'm not saying these guys (Keith, Mick, and Ronnie) need to retire from playing or recording music but it's time to stop dragging the Stones name across the football stadiums America, now that they are no longer the Stones. If they keep going now it will never end. I can't bear to see the Stones turn into just another scab band like so many others.
“It’s better to burn out than it is to rust” absolutely applies here!
I’m with you, just cannot stand the thought of seeing these guys do this to themselves. However, I do hope all of them keep making music, together or solo. Perhaps the end of the band will liberate them from the constraints of the Rolling Stones “brand” and the attendant audience expectations and trigger a burst of late-career creativity, giving us some unexpected interesting musical curveballs.
