I don't see what's so great about the Stones either. Just because they're a household name everyone thinks that makes them good. Anytime I ask someone they just say "because theyre the stonnnnnnnnnnnnes maaaaaaan".

Hell, one time I was in a store with my friend and they had the stones playing and all it was was a guy going "whoo whoo" over and over. I say "this music is so annoying" and some random teenager in a plad shirt and suspenders goes "hey you watch your mouth thats the rolling stones!" and then my friend who doesnt even listen to music goes "omg you dont like the rolling stones!?"

Ahh, "Sympathy"

The Stones wrote some fun and catchy songs, and they rocked harder than the Beatles, but those are the only endorsements I can give them.

You should think about the Rolling Stones in the context of their times -- the British Invasion -- rather than the Rolling Bones they are now. That's what makes them a big deal.

That said, I don't really give a shit about them either.

Therefore, that generation made it their mission to champion those bands and shit upon everything else that came after it.
For me it's not so much any kind of "they're so popular I must hate them" backlash. I honestly think the Beatles were awful. The Stones too. LZ I like, but I'm just not going to pay £125 for anyone, them included.

Getting back on topic, I think Zeppelin waited a little too long to do this reunion. Like Div said, there's no way that Robert Plant can hit those high notes anymore, and I have no idea what effect age has had on Jones and Pagey's playing. and $250? Fuck that shit. I'll just go see that Zoso tribute band again when they roll around in a couple of weeks...for free.

If I pay $250 to see a band live they better do some crazy shit like go "this is our last gig ever" and then decapitate themselves or something.
