Rolling Stones Fans

October 27, 1994

* I take offense to John Glionna's "Not Fade Away" Rolling Stones article (Oct. 20). He makes "over 40" sound like we're one foot in the grave. My first Stones concert was 30 years ago at the Long Beach Convention Center (or does my 44-year-old memory evade me?)--very exciting for a 14-year-old.

If it wasn't for our generation, rock music as it is today would be nonexistent. Alternative rock is an extension of '60s music, evolved.

Won't it be interesting to see what the future generation has to say about Nine Inch Nails in 30 years?

* Glionna was so busy focusing on the crow's feet on Mick Jagger's fans that he failed to see the big picture. Those original bad boys of rock, the Rolling Stones, are once again blazing a new trail. This time they're proving that you can rock and roll at any age. I saw the Stones in 1974 and 1994, and they are way cooler in '94. And so am I.
