Rollin' Stones Gather Moss

In the home country, Mick and his chaps are not getting any satisfaction (or R-E-S-P-E-C-T). Hundreds of their tickets are going unsold for concerts in G.B., e.g., in Twickenham (tomorrow & Tues.), Cardiff, and Glasgow. On eBay, bids for tickets are at a pound, even a pence. Promoters are going so far as to put up last minute billboards on main arteries into London to get rid of the glut. To the further chagrin of the highest grossing tour band in the world, their tickets are being sold to seniors at half price by Saga, an English elders' discount company.

They can't get no satisfaction, now, can they?
Strolling Bones: welcome to reality.
