I was in college the one and only time I saw the Rolling Stones in concert, and they were far, far past their expiration date—seeing Jagger was still impressive, and it wasn't a bad show or anything, but it was also profoundly odd to be watching them while sitting behind a rich-looking fat dude who was wearing what had to be at least a $500 leather jacket emblazoned with the Stones' tongue logo. I remember thinking that it'd probably be kind of weird to see the bands I grew up with when, and if, they ever got to a similar point. Now I know, and yep, it's pretty weird.
