I'm not buying this one either, at least in relation to the Dig It lyrics, which were from 1969. Look at this video of Keith in 1974. He certainly looks like the earlier Keith and already has signs of being burned out. As they say, "Cocaine is a helluva drug." So if he was replaced, which I don't really think is true, it was after this:
I think the lyrics of Dig It are just referring to intelligence operations or intelligence operatives. After all, the FBI, CIA and BBC weren't replaced. So I guess John considered the Stones an intelligence operation. He would certainly know more about that than anyone.
This makes sense because I heard that Mick Jagger's family was connected to the London School of Economics and Mick attended there, before dropping out and becoming a rock n' roll revolutionary. The LSE is a Fabian Socialist organization.
The replacements are sponsored by the intelligence community, so they probably become controllable assets, if they are not already part of the intelligence community. Who else has the expertise and power to replace someone?
In this video, Keith has some moles on the side of his face that you don't see in the 1974 interview. I guess I would need to see more evidence. The strange thing is that I can't find any early interviews of the Stones. Any help? Seems strange because they were second only to The Beatles.
Makes sense, the real Brian Jones was the true musical genius behind the Rolling Stones. It was his band originally. Mick and Keith took over the group and pushed Brian to the side.
I disagree with that first sentence. Despite being the founder member, Brian wasn't happy to move on to the next level and stop being just a cover band. Mick and Keith took over because the wanted to write their own songs to become a band in their own rights.
We were talking about the space between us all and the people who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion never glimpse the truth then it's far too late when they pass away

I think Mick was replaced as well. He had rounded and bulging eyes and now they are slits, like a permanent squint. He had a cuteness about him in those early years, but he hadn't been "cute" since the late 60's, which I think he was replaced shortly after the time of Brian's death.
I'm speculating that perhaps many of these people were replaced either because they were killed off due to not complying to the plan, or they had indulged in so many substances that they couldn't function any longer. IMO.
And the musical direction of the stones after Jones' death... not true to their R &B roots.
