Just heard that Sir Mick has just become a Great-Granddad for the first time.
Damn, I feel old...
Hell, Bill, you are old... and so am I. :smile:
No Sympathy for the Devil, then!
what a drag it is getting old
Only when you've had your 19th nervous breakdown
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes....!
Wow, Great Granddaddy Jagger?! There must be some very young parents - in that family line!
It ain't no capital crime
what a crazy family tree he's got..... and I just read that his girlfriend commited suicide earlier this year. I wouldn't mind his money, but I wouldn't want his life. Poor Mick.
He's a prime example of the fact that You can't always get what you want...
I don't think he still believes that Time Is On My Side
But if you try sometimes, you get what you need
Actually, it is. Eventually, for all of us. The only universal capital crime - all countries, all people, politics and money be damned. Getting old will eventually kill you. If you're lucky enough to GET old...
Those guys are wonders of nature. The reason I wouldn't want their lives is that I couldn't have survived into my 30s if I'd lived their lives. I'd have been Brian Jones. Keith in particular is simply amazing - how do you survive into your 70's the way he lived the first 60 or so??? And evidently he's quite the country gentleman at this point. And a recent concert tape was the first time I thought he'd lost a step in his lead playing - I think it was the Hyde Park show from last summer that was on HBO or something. But his rhythm playing and riffing was still spot on... Sucking in the 70's my ass!
I know, it's only Rock'n'Roll...
But I like it. A LOT!
Wonders of nature? More like "better living through chemistry." That's why Mick Taylor fled for his life after a few years with the band. He was another one who would have ended up like Brian Jones. But it was nice to see him back in this last tour. When the remaining four "real" Stones normally take a bow at the end of a concert - without any other support musicians - Taylor was out there with them to make it five.
Time was, if you saw a sign for "Rolling Stones plus Support" you could count on hearing another band, now it refers to jockstraps, back braces and zimmer frames...
