But I second that. Went to three Stones shows last year and it was great.
If Larry - and only then - is okay with it and the three others are, then who am I to jugde or decide for them. They are musicians and love to play live. I prefer to see all four of them on stage and I really, really love Larry's playing AND seeing and hearing him live on stage and although I have never met him I also really like the guy, but if he is unable to perform next year I would still go, hoping that he'll be back soon, of course.
"I was reminded of something I had long ago forgotten - that I had written the lyrics for this song in a small village in northern Ethiopia on a scrap of paper, an Air India sick bag, I think. And there it was, nearly twenty years later, coming back to Africa, all the stuff about parched lands and deserts making sense for the first time. The hairs just stood up on the back of my neck. I could barely sing the song. And it was like that every night of the tour."
- Bono on Where The Streets Have No Name during the Vertigo tour
