when I'm 64


Mick Jagger turned 64 yesterday, and we could say he has done pretty well with his life. The Beatles may have had the 60s, but the Stones had the 60s AND the 70s, plus a little of the 80s, and, well, another 20 or more years of not such great original music. But Mick and the band are still rockin'. From the beginning 'Time is my side'and later 'Start me up', kind of the bookends of their best years, early to late.

Funny thing is - I remember actually seeing the Beatles and Stones when they appeared on Ed Sullivan for the 1st time! ha!

We were talking about the embarrassing spectacle that is Mick Jagger at coffee the other day. What does he think will happen if he actually had the sense to retire? The world would end?

I suspect he's just afraid that the world would go on without him and barely notice.

The man sure does OK with the ladies though, huh?
