70 must be the new 50

70 must be the new 50

I remember being nine-years-old and buying my first Rolling Stones record at the old E. J. Korvettes, and thinking — no, KNOWING — that they were one band that would never get old and wrinkled.  And I was almost right.  Whether it’s the, ahem, clean living and healthy lifestyle that does it, or just the Miss Clairol, Sir Mick Jagger has managed to keep his vitality and relative youthfulness.  The man born with a bit to spare in the lips department hit the seven-decade mark on July 26th, and I guess at least one-half of The Glimmer Twins is doing something right by going to the gym.  Sir Mick will always be known as being rock’s preeminent front man and a great co-songwriter with partner Keith Richards.  And yes, 45 years later I still buy Stones music and can’t wait until the new album comes out.
