Mick Jagger Turns 70 Today

It is rare that I stop for a second and say something about a birthday of a celebrity, but Mick Jagger turns 70 today. That is crazy. What is crazier is that his band, The Rolling Stones have played better shows this summer than lots of bands who are half their ages and who have done significantly less drugs than all of them. Mick Jagger is 70. Let that sink in for just a second. To live the kind of life he has led and to play that hard and work that hard and to still be alive at 70 is an amazing accomplishment. So, is the fact that right now there is probably some baby being born and that baby will probably be the date of Mick Jagger at his 90th birthday party where he will keep the set list down to an hour because Keith Richards has a bag of blow to do before he goes to bed. Oh, and all shows start at 2pm.

Wow, this makes me feel old!

That's crazy. How is it they lived and so many others from that era didn't? Good for them, good for him.

They look so much alike, maybe Harry Styles should check his DNA.

Mick's smart, a really good business man and that's how he looks at The Stones as a business..
Gosh forgot how cute he was...

X. The Stones stayed together while everyone else fell apart, the hard times just made them better. And they're still rocking. Thanks for the most part to Mick Jagger, the ultimate front man. Happy birthday and many more.

I have never understood the apparent sex appeal of this man. He's only gotten uglier as he's gotten older, and yet stupid young girls still flock to him. There's gotta be a less creepy way to make a buck, ladies.

Saw them a few months back and it was incredible!! How they are still playing - I'll never understand. But holy crap are they amazing!

He was only 19 when the Stones started? Actually 18 since their first show was before his birthday. That's just amazing. I thought all those guys hit 70 a couple years ago.

Mick never did a lot of drugs, even in their heyday. He takes immaculate care of his health and body; he's a walking poster child for what yrs of a faithful workout regimen can do for someone once they reach senior status. The energy he has during Stones shows is amazing.

Lol about the younger date born now. Funny because its kinda true.

I wanted to f*ck him when I was 13 and I still want to get with him! Unfortunately I am too old for him.

Charisma and stage presence make up for lack of looks. A good front man can leave the girls panting, the guys wanting to be that cool and smooth, and everyone feeling like they have had the best time of their lives. There aren't many good front men left these days. And now I am going to go listen to Gimme Shelter..Happy birthday Mick J.
