Mick at 68 – He Gets Lucky on the Side

Mick & Keef

Everyone knows that Keef is the coolest Stone, the iconic Stone, but that wasn’t always the way it was, nor will it always be the way they’ll be remembered, more than likely. Jagger’s voice, persona, and lyrical flair — not to mention lips — were the band’s original trademark, and are as inseparable from the band’s sound as Keef’s riffing or Charlie’s rimshots.

Happy 68th Birthday, Mick! To pay my respects I offer this tribute: my favorite “Mick Moments” on record/video — Stones and otherwise. What are yours?

Moonlight Mile

Loving Cup

Hang Fire

State of Shock / It’s Only Rock and Roll (Mick & Tina)

Evening Gown (solo)

  1. They are epic. Keith will always be my favorite but Mick is the star. Happy birthday to the front man of the greatest rock and roll band in the world!
