With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“So if you’re down on your luck and you can’t harmonize” July 26, 2011


A rolling stone apparently gathers no moss, but what about an aging stone? Mick Jagger is 68 today, bringing the total age of the Rolling Stones (including along with Sir Mick; Keef, Charlie and Ronnie) to 269 years. Mick is a keen cricket fan so no doubt will have been pleased by England’s excellent performance against India at Lords yesterday.

Will the Stones tour again? Who knows? But one of the alleged reasons for them not hitting the road soon was a remark in Keith Richards’ autobiography which disparaged the size of Mick’s todger. Mick, I wouldn’t be too upset if I were you, large or small it seems to work pretty
well given all the Jagger sproglets that are on the planet! Plus Keith did say you had big balls!

Anyway in recognition of Mick’s birthday here are a few Stones classics, including “Gimme Shelter” to reflect Mick’s options regarding
a move to sheltered accommodation;

And finally an opportunity for me to share the new Cher Lloyd single which I really love. Is there something wrong with me? I actually like something that has arisen from the X Factor that also takes the refrain from “Oh My Darling Clementine”. Anyway what’s it doing in a post about Mick Jagger? Well it’s a very tenuous link, but it’s called “Swagger Jagger”
