ABSOLUTELY! I just didnt dare saying that, I was merely trying to make the point that even for a rock band, there is life beyond the 40. In my very personal opinion, Mick Jagger/the Stones are NO competion whatsoever!

Well, there's certainly some similarities ;)

Please don't misunderstand me here, Mick Jagger is certainly a remarkable artist (and of a stunning physical fitness, too).
Comparing him with Rory though, I have to agree with Curiosity: Rory is definitely aging much better. :love:
So is Calum.
So are Bruce, Mr. Bayne and Donnie.
Not to mention Brian :wink:


P.S.: Rory's way to dress shows definitely more style and taste than Mick's.

Reposting this from before Christmas, as message got lost in the database change:

I think the visible difference has to do with lifestyle.

Mick is amazingly fit for someone whose earlier life was one of rock star excess, which now has to be compensated for by strict exercise and diet regimes (and maybe more), while Rory has basically always lived healthily so is more naturally fit-looking.

Not that I'm biased.... ;)

I absolutely agree with what's been written above :-) and I hope they'll sing forever and a day :-)
In my opinion it gives them so much fun still that they have no reason to stop besides having achieved so much they are financially secured hence now they can fully enjoy what they have been doing for over 40 years.

In the video for Alba, someone told me that Rory looks kind of like Bon Jovi. I then showed someone else a more recent picture of Rory from google, and they said that he looks like Mick Jagger too.

All I know is I'm positively yearning for more of Runrig. 'And We'll Sing' still has me reapplying my mascara every freaking time I hear it :love:
I'm Swedish, but I've managed to pass the love for this band's music on to 2 of my 3 children, 1 ex boyfriend and my Dad and they all LOVE Runrig. Everyone loves Runrig. Even in faraway Sweden, people just need to be exposed to it and then, instant Love.
This music has that something that speaks to the heart. There's so much to choose from, whatever mood I'm in, Runrig has a song to help me deal with it.
I've even learned a substantial number of words and phrases in Gaelic. Like I could totally communicate if I were cold, tired, or on fire :)
Judging from some comments in here I just hope that I haven't missed my chance to see them live with by the people I've converted to Runrigism!
It's been a dream for me for at least ten years to see Runrig live. I better not end up being too late, please reinsure me :?

I'm pretty sure that you will get your chance Esme. It just gets a little bit frustrating when Runrig appear to work on a completely different time than their fans and things can get really quiet which in turns sparks up speculations and rumours about the bands future, despite me having started this conversation some time ago, I do feel that the band, although frustratingly quiet much of the time, would at least let us know if they weren't coming back, if not they'd insult and alienate alot of their fans, its a common problem with the band, so don't be disheartened, i'm sure they'l be back, even if they've announced that there will be no tour this year.

We know they are not going away (yet) as they (via Bruce) said this at the 40th gig, and the Wires since then, few though they may be since not much public is happening, have been looking ahead too.

The current Wire has told us they are working on a new album aiming for release next spring, and I think mentioned or at least implied touring on the back of it. (I don't have it at hand to check.)

Last night Iain Bayne was interviewed on Karin Ingram's radio show and, amongst the usual jollity and non-Runrig stuff, confirmed this, saying dates for gigs next year were being pencilled in and filling up nicely.

So while clearly there is an acute shortage of gigs just now, there is no mystery about it.

Many years as a Runrig fan has taught me to possess my soul in patience ;) , so I'm not losing any sleep over it. :rose:

I take heart from the fact that they came back from the 'year out' 2010 (and a big chunk of 2011) better than ever. POTM/Edinburgh Castle and the English anniversary tour turned up the heat another notch and I've no doubt hat the European gigs in the anniversary year were up to the same standard.
A possible spring release followed by some Spring/Summer UK gigs is something to look forward to - all I ask now is that they don't leave the UK gigs until the winter.
