      The Stones in the 70s, back when it was still possible to crash the custard truck on a nightly basis.

      If you've ever gone on tour, some half-drunk uncle has probably pulled you aside at a holiday dinner and demanded the dirt on the finer points of travelin' life. You can just imagine him whisper-spitting into your ear:

      "So what's it really like on the road? You know… the groupies? I bet you're playing rumpy pumpy every night, am I right?"
