THE ROLLING STONES: TIME IS ON THEIR SIDE
A significant moment in “Shine a Light,” Martin Scorsese’s documentary on The Rolling Stones, was a clip from a 1970’s press interview with Mick Jagger. Mick was asked if he could imagine being on stage at 60 and he replied “Yeah….easily.” Little did he know how inspiring that attitude would turn out to be. Stones fans who saw the documentary walked away feeling more than just entertained. Mick Jagger is an inspiration. He’s 65 and has the enthusiasm of a young man. He’s slim, trim, and well dressed – and can sing almost anybody under the table. He’s the heart – and the BRAINS – behind the band. (He does all the business side of the job.) In fact the whole band looks great – they’re in shape and coincidentally they all have hair, and make no effort to disguise their wrinkles. The message is: If THEY can wear velvet pants and work and have fun and be hip and cool, ANYONE can do it.
