So the Stones are celebrating 50 years as a band, and despite not touring, they have just released a nice big chunky coffee table book simply entitled ‘The Rolling Stones:50’. The book is fresh off the presses in China (???) and now on the high streets across the UK. No doubt, the book is promising to be quite a thrill. Many of the photos and paraphernalia is culled form the band’s own archives.
In an obvious flurry of promotion, this photo surfaced online and caught our attention. Look how old they look! I mean, Charlie has always looked old, but the other guys are looking quite a sight. Mick, he looks really odd, like someone’s forgotten grandad told to dress up for some function he could care less about. Poor fella can’t even afford to buy a suit that fits properly. Look at the dreadful sizing on that thing, and he is still wearing those old man aerobic Reeboks! The stylist should have called Keith out on those silly green shoes, but at least they stopped him from wearing some silly turban or head-wrap. Is it propped up on that chair for effect or is it really necessary for the old boy? Ronnie looks quite dapper in his jeans and chalk-striped jacket. Charlie, as ever, looks like a million.
