Stones keep on rolling

"TIME Waits for No One", the Rolling Stones sang in 1974, but lately it's seemed like that grizzled quartet does indeed have some sort of exemption from the ravages of time.

At an average age of 68-plus, the British rockers are clearly in fighting form. They sounded tight, focused and truly ready for the spotlight at concerts last month.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts hit New York City's Barclays Centre on Saturday for the first of three US shows.

There are two more shows next week, in Newark, New Jersey.

Next week the Stones join other superstars Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Alicia Keys, Kanye West and Chris Martin at a concert to benefit victims of superstorm Sandy at Madison Square Garden, in New York.
