I'm a Baroque fanatic myself. Like you, I find it increasingly difficult to listen to rock music. I'd take Monteverdi, Bach and Handel over the Stones, Beatles and Hendrix anyday.

I'm sure Mick Jagger is tired of the Rolling Stones too. It's been almost a quarter century since they put out anything close to a decent album.

Well, I've always said, "if it ain't Baroque, don't fix it!" :-) I guess if the only thing you've ever known is the swill that's modern music, that's what you're going to enjoy; just as if you've never tasted lobster you might think tripe is the ultimate in culinary delight!

I’ve kind of gotten bored with rock too. But I’m moving in a slightly different direction from you guys — towards disco. A Chic album spins on a turntable in the background as I type.

Their appearance at the Super Bowl was simply horrible. I was never a big fan but did see the Stones live back in the 60’s.

LOL, I remember a Rolling Stone magazine cover from around 1980-82 with Jagger saying how he didn’t want to still be doing “Can’t Get No Satisfaction” when he was 40!

You might know what is the piece of classical music being played at the beginning of this Billy Idol video?

If it attracts girls like Devon I might have to get a copy.
