Mick Jagger’s Birthday – July 26th

Today, Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones celebrates his 68th birthday.  Jagger’s career has spanned over a half century where, in addition to recording and performing with the Stones, he has released 5 solo albums, several of which have reached Gold and Platinum sales. Jagger has also explored other creative arenas as well, such as producing and acting for film.  His distinctive voice and lively, charismatic stage presence have made him one of the music industry’s most iconic and recognizable figures.

The Rolling Stones appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show a total of six times throughout the 1960s.  Notable performances of hits such as “Paint it Black” and “Satisfaction” gave the band maximum exposure to the American audience and helped them to set the charts on fire.  To date, The Rolling Stones have released 29 studio albums, 10 of which have been included in the Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.  With the 50th anniversary of the formation of The Rolling Stones less than a year away,  there is speculation of a possible reunion of the band.  Could we be so lucky?
