Everything is About Money


Were you expecting the Rolling Stones to do anything that didn't involve making money? Were you expecting a sliver of artistic integrity or for them to stand up against a totalitarian government? Were you hoping they would find a way to be cool or relevant again?

Sorry, ain't happening.

By kissing the ass of the Chinese ministry of culture, which has banned their innocuous songs from thirty or forty-odd years ago, they have lined up with Elton John and whoever else is desperate for that extra hundred million dollars. How much money do you need? Jeebus.
