Well, well, well – Mick Jagger turned 65 on Saturday, and so joins the rarefied crew of rockers eligible for a pension. If the Rolling Stones gave pensions, and if Mick was ready to totter off to retirement, which apparently he is not.
Even if you don’t like his music, you have to recognize his success: over forty-five years of survival at the top of a business that, for longevity rates , makes driving a dynamite truck look like stamp collecting.
Congrats, Mick. Here’s a penny for the old guy.
Now, in case you are wondering what all the fuss was about, here he is at 21, singing their first American hit, Not Fade Away.
