Fans love to speculate about Rock bands 'selling out'. This is something often declared when a band begins to move away from what are believed to be their roots, and begin doing things just to make money, things that producers urge them to do.
The problem with the assessing the Stones in this area is that the Stones are the most commercially successful Rock'n Roll band in history. They have more money than they will ever know what to do with, and at this point they do not have careers ahead of them. They also still have their wits about them, can make very good music even now. They have the will to keep going and they all get along. These things cannot be said of any other band of their era. So anything the Stones do now is not something based on financial need. I think they really love making and playing music, its that simple.
Had they quit in the '71, 73, or even '86, there would be a lot of great music missing.
I guess only they themselves know why they continue on.
They do sound different. Listen to then now, and all their live stuff from Steel Wheels onward, and then listen to Bussels and the other shows of that era. There are differences. I like the way they sound now, don't get me wrong, they just sound different.
