Not Fade Away

Not fade away: Mick Jagger on the trials of life at 65 - Features, Music - The Independent: "Before Mick Jagger enters the hotel room, I'm half expecting to be reminded of the opening line of The Rolling Stones' old number 'Mother's Little Helper'. You know the bit, as Jagger whines in that unmistakable voice of his, 'What a drag it is getting old'. This has been, after all, a watershed year for the Stones' lead singer. Turning 65 in July, all those jokes about the wrinkly rocker being old enough to collect his pension finally came true. Sir Mick – as he became in 2003 – is now officially an OAP. Not that he's ready to curl up with his cocoa just yet."
