I have a recording from their recent London Stadium gig, compliled from a number of in ear monitor feeds to produce a sort of stereo field. Quite frankly their playing is awful now, they sound like a schoolboy band at their second ever rehearsal!

Who was playing lead guitar? Keith Richards has lost it, which is why they bring in Mick Taylor, for instance at Glastonbury 2013.

Bearing in mind - they probably get paid more for each gig than most of us make in our lives - why would they stop?

What!!! Halt the career of one of the best folk bands the country (Or should I say Cuntry as Backwoodsman/ Muskrat would say). You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

All those 60s and 70s "folk icons" that are being played in so-called "folk clubs" - personally speaking if I want to listen to any of that music I will listen to a recording - none of it is improved or bettered by some twat with a reedy voice and a mediocre accompaniment on a six string guitar.

why would they stop?

Maybe they don't stop because they enjoy playing? A pal of mine who's a fine bass player and a more than decent guitarist went to see them in Manchester, and reported not only that they played really well, but also appeared to be having a lot of fun.

Did they not have an album,
a studio album in the last five or ten years,
receive a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues?
2016 or something?

Quite a few bands seem to be still flourishing, long past the normal best-before date of the rest. I saw a full-page ad yesterday for Iron Maiden's forthcoming tour - apparently already sold out. Presumably the ad space was firmly booked long ago. Well, if they can still bring in the customers....

And Fairport Convention are their own tribute band.

We do not insist politicians retire, so why criticize performing musicians of advancing years. They must be doing something right if people still pay to see them. They are also far more entertaining.

Seems there are one or two embittered posters here. Envious perhaps?

I like how they sound these days
It's more akin to Howlin' Wolf or Sam Hopkins. I can see why some people would prefer their earlier, safer duller, more vanilla sound, but for me this new feel has more soul.

"And Fairport Convention are their own tribute band" - current line up are twee beyond imagination. I regularly play a recording of a Cropredy warm up from August 1992 which is superb!!!

I imagine a recording created as described might not do justice to the actual sound
in the arena. It might even make the playing seem out of time. You get some appalling sound from TV broadcasts of live rock, for example.

Well thank fuck I've got a good voice and I'm a decently competent guitar player (as Guest: Observer should know, if he/she is the 'banned ex-member' I'm guessing he/she is!). :-) :-)

Unfortunately "Baccy" most who do attempt 60s and 70s pop hits in folk clubs do not have good voices and no matter how competent you or anyone else is on guitar you simply cannot make it sound like a four or five piece pop group. As to your own self proclaimed talents I'll take your word for it as to my certain knowledge I have never seen or heard you 'perform'.

As for "The Stones" I am sure they will continue to perform until such time as no-one is prepared to part with their cash to see them - good luck to them!

surely that's the point of folk clubs.

you are a folk. you have a voice. you want to sing.

it does not have to be a 'good' voice.

Ah, not the guy I thought you were!

But of course, a solo performer isn't (or shouldn't be) trying to 'make it sound like a four or five piece pop group' - I certainly wouldn't. He/she should be doing their own, solo interpretation of the song.

The over-arching memories I have of Bruce Springsteen concerts are the songs he sang with just his own acoustic guitar accompaniment. Absolutely wonderful 'hairs-on-the-back-of-your-neck' stuff.

I 'do' two or three classic pop songs, that's all, but I try to do them 'my way', otherwise simply trying to duplicate a band-record is not only very in-satisfying for me, but also doomed to result in failure. And I don't sing them in folk clubs, only 'acoustic music' clubs or open-mics.

Regarding the Stones, I'm in absolute agreement with you!

If they're enjoying doing it and people are prepared to pay, what's the problem? Personally, I wouldn't pay a ridiculous amount to see them. But neither would I pay £75 to see Richard Thompson, and I really like him. I saw Steve Harley a few months ago and The Levellers last week and both were superb, although it was a little strange to see them sitting down to perform.
