OK, maybe they do.  Beyond listening to the new radio releases, it doesn't
matter to me.  Did you see any of the 60 or so Quad shows of the past 18
months?  Within the structure of the piece, there was plenty of creativity.

Apparently you've missed or chosen to ignore the early rumors that they may
well do that very thing.  Even if they don't, again, it doesn't matter to
me.  As long as they get on stage I'd rather see them do songs from the
catalogue than see a Stones show, with or without new music.  (Believe it
or not, this doesn't mean I would not (and have not) enjoyed Stones shows.)

There's only one I would care to name and if you have to ask you're reading
the wrong list.

I'll leave it to Mr. Sethian to defend his post (or not) as he chooses.
