But what if you have the chance to work with someone who is a big name in your field of interest, but that person hasn't been doing much research lately and/or is close to getting retired (but would continue to advise students)? Would you still prefer the first kind of adviser? (Probably this question applies better to theoretical fields of research, but anyone feel free to comment.)

My prof told me of a guy who took 9 years to complete his PhD, because 2 advisers died on him (and for some reason it was very hard to find the third one)...
