Yeah. GHS is just now re-released. Mick didn’t like the new released songs from that period first, but later he did find his way to them again.

Mick would go like “Unreleased tracks, to me that always means a lot of work. It’s like, ‘Things that you didn’t like and didn’t finish!“. But then, after a while, he’s like “You finish [tracks] like you would if you recorded them last week… Where are my maracas? Surely I must have my maracas around here.”
There’s a nice article at rollingstone.com with this and more for you to read, if you haven’t done already and there’s another one at ultimateclassicrock.com with the ever so charming message from Keith for us, that The Rolling Stones have no interest in retiring.
In an interview with Rolling Stone (see above for the link), he also said:
“Retirement is still not an option for the band … You might call it a habit … I mean, that’s what we do. And also there’s that thing between us, like, ‘Who’s going to be the first one to get off the bus?’ You have to be kicked off or drop off, right? So it’s like that. I really can’t imagine doing anything else.”
There is nothing to stop the optimistic hope that we get more gigs of this band in the future. Mind you, in 2022, the Stones will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of playing to an audience. This is just crazy and so fantastic. And Keith hopes it’s an occasion they mark onstage:
“I hope we’re all there, man, … It’s something to look forward to.“
WHAT A BAND! Are we lucky to be fans since 60 years or what?!!??? 🙂
