In the history of music, there have been plenty of superstars, icons, and legends — but only one Mick Jagger.
Today, the man born Michael Phillip Jagger turns 75. He may seem ageless, much like his colleague Keith Richards, but he is, in fact, of this earthly plane, and today’s his birthday.
As the Stones keep rolling right along, playing huge venues to fans the world over year after year, Mick also keeps up with his solo career. Just last year, he premiered some politically charged new solo music:
And appeared on blues legend Buddy Guy’s new album The Blues Is Alive and Well.
So whatever you do today, take some time out to put on some Stones and celebrate Mick Jagger’s unmistakable presence as one of the most vibrant front men in the history of rock and roll.
Happy birthday, Mick!
