RE: Stones Legacy In Peril?

I don't think the Stones will lose their legacy. Perhaps the band will not have the status as it does to us but musicians will draw inspiration from their music and pass along the sound and feelings of their music.

The Stones will be an inspiration for new bands-- for how long... 50 years maybe? Musicians will look back on the Stones' work just like Brian drew inspiration from Elmore James and the like.

The Stones are an archetypal force and that force will be present in all generations.

I agree somewhat that other bands <<<<<are keeping more relevant, credible and creative in their third decade than the Stones did in their third, fourth, or fifth decades.>>> It would be difficult for a person to get turned on to the Stones by their music after Undercover. The later albums are loved by Stonesfans because they love the band. Just like many of us look back at the golden years of the Stones, so will generations look back at those years. I doubt people in the future will think their music is relevant and creative past Tattoo You, with the possible exception of Voodoo Lounge.

The Stones legacy will be in the bands that draw inspiration from the Stones, and I think that will last for decades to come.

The band may be forgotten but not the legacy they leave of pure rock and roll. In the future their will be someone like Brian, to a lesser degree of course, who has the vision and genius to create some kind of new music that the Stones awakened in them.

Very interesting post Oklahoma Zeppelin like usual. The power behind the Stones music will be there forever.
