Today Mick Jagger turned 70!  WOW

Lot of folks make fun of him because of his age but he has been able to do what he wants and do it well since the 60s.   Those rockers that I grew up with and survived the 60s-70s and now turning 70+.   Back then I never thought I would turn 30 much less reach Medicare age.  

Happy Birthday Mick!

You make getting old sound like some great personal failure.  This may come as a shock, but we all age.  :D

Getting older is not a failure it is yet another chapter in life and one that we know the ending but not the route to the end.

No, no no. Keith has been dead for at least 10 years now. Just look at him.
