The Rolling Stones have enjoyed unparalleled and massive success over the last couple of years. Consider the facts: Susan Boyle’s debut album I Dreamed a Dream features the Stones’ classic Wild Horses. The album sold over Nine (9) million copies world wide. Next, the video game Call of Duty: Black Ops features two Stones classics, Gimme Shelter and Sympathy for the Devil. The game has sold over 25 million copies worldwide. Then came Exile On Main Street reissue, it goes to # 1 in U.K and # 2 in U.S. The Some Girls reissue is doing Respectable (pun intended) business. Add in this nugget: The Rolling Stones are still the most successful touring band in history. In totality, no other artist or entertainers have sold more concert tickets, made more money, or played to more people than the Rolling Stones. Best selling books like Keith Richards’ Life and homage songs such as Maroon 5’s Moves Like Jagger, keep the Rolling Stones, after fifty years on, at the top of the music world.

I guess this means his vocal issues that ended the S&G tour have healed. Hopefully those two can get together and get back on the road.
