"I know it's only an annuity, but the Rolling Stones
like it, like it, yes, they do."
July 22, 2019 - Or at least they like having their 2019 No Filter Tour sponsored exclusively by the Alliance for Lifetime Income which suggests an endorsement of annuities.
"Time is on my side, yes it is"

Despite memes floating around suggesting Keith Richards has the same life expectancy as Dracula, Mick Jagger's recent heart surgery suggests the band faces a different longevity reality today than when they first charted with their Ode to Existence in 1965:

Even the Stones will someday stop Rolling.
(RIP Brian Jones)

So, I suppose it was only a matter of time (get it?) until some baby boomer rock 'n' roll band partnered with a nonprofit which extols the virtues of something tailor made for everyone in their shared demographic, financial security in retirement.

"But where I live the game to play is compromise solution"

Once upon a time, the notion of rock artists allowing their music to be used for commercial purposes other than record sales was considered anathema. After all, the whole point of the genre was rebellion and rejection of traditional norms, including capitalism.

But watch any television show these days and count the number of old rock tunes being used to sell everything from cars, sports apparel and soft drinks to cruises, cell phones and what-have-you. Thus, a compromise of their original ideals was probably inevitable.

In a sense, though, one can probably view this Alliance for Lifetime Income's sponsorship of the No Filter Tour as the band's own minirebellion of commercial sponsors because they chose to associate themselves with an entire concept rather than a single company.

The subliminal message? "We're older. You're older. So, get an annuity if you want to keep on rockin'."

Or something like that.

Their dedicated No Filter Tour website has some nifty links where you can take a quiz to find out if an annuity is right for you, check your Retirement Income Security Evaluation (RISE) Score™, watch videos of professionals who have secured their futures with annuities, and other helpful resources.

And finally, for a better understanding of why fans didn't mind when Mick Taylor replaced Eric Clapton in John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, this clip from 1971 when the Stones were between Brian Jones and Ronnie Wood, tells it all. Having seen the Stones live during their Exile on Main Street Tour then, I personally bore witness to his virtuosity.
