Oh No, Not Another – Birthday

Although it is generally known, I think it’s about time to announce that I was born at a very early age.
Groucho Marx (1895–1977), comic actor

Whoever said time marches on should be rewarded with the world’s most understated phrase – it’s in a constant sprint. The tireless (and greedy?) Mick Jagger turns 62 today. The Rolling Stones have been playing for audiences since the early ‘60s and only one band member had died Brian Jones, and another, Bill Wyman, retired. Mick Taylor who replaced Jones quit because Jagger would not share song-writing credits.

Sorry Mick, no present from me, I have already contributed far too much to the band's bank account. Happy birthday nonetheless.

How does that saying go? If there was a nuclear holocaust, the only things surviving would be cockroaches and Keith Richards, right? Something tells me Mick would be right there with them.

They will be right there with them, but performing and charging $100 a seat or more.
