From what I've seen in person that doesn't appear to be bull. I saw and heard backing tracks with Guitars, Vocals, Extra Drum bits, and synths. Gibbons, Hill & Beard are heading to 69 years old - despite the genetic miracle of people like Paul McCartney or Mick Jagger - the rest of us start feeling our age by the 60s. I for one don't see anything wrong with it - nor do I think they are Cheating. I do see some guys that still want to tour - still want to put on a decent show - and don't want to disappoint fans. They just need a bit of help now a days.
