THE STONES TOO OLD FOR THE STONES

Interestingly, the organisers of The Rolling Stones set at the Superbowl have decided that anyone over the age of 45 would be "too old to stand" and watch them play. That's thirteen years younger than the youngest member of the Stones.

The people who get to watch the show are going to have attend five rehearsals so they can get the applauding and cheering right. We bet there are quite a few bands who'd love to be able to drill their audience like that.

And, while we're talking of the Stones, we had an email from I Look Ill's Gary on the subject of Victoria Newton's pisspoor Sticky Fingers gag was even worse than we'd thought: Stamp collecting Ron Wood wasn't even on Sticky Fingers.
