In the vibrant age of 80, Mick Jagger, the iconic frontman of The Rolling Stones, continues to defy the notion of slowing down, marking six decades of rebellious spirit, colorful career, and an unparalleled zest for life.


Over the course of the band’s 61-year journey, Jagger has evolved from a rebellious troublemaker in the ’60s to a knight of the music realm, amassing a fortune estimated at over $500 million. Despite the infamous 1965 incident in London that solidified The Rolling Stones’ rebellious image, Jagger has become one of the world’s wealthiest rock stars.


Known for his provocative charm and calculated rebelliousness, Jagger’s diligent work ethic contrasts with the wild image of a troublemaker. Today, he reflects on the band’s notorious era, emphasizing that The Rolling Stones were just a group of innocent teenage musicians, not intending to cultivate a rebellious image.

While the rebellious spirit brought fame, it also had serious consequences for some band members. Guitarist Brian Jones tragically drowned in 1969 at the age of 27, succumbing to a life of excess in alcohol and drugs. Jagger and Richards themselves faced drug-related charges in 1967.


From the band’s inception, Jagger and Richards penned some of their most iconic hits. Their on-stage chemistry, with Jagger’s energetic performances and Richards’ distinctive riffs, drew comparisons to The Beatles’ John Lennon and Paul McCartney.


Despite the blazing fires that often lead to burnout, The Rolling Stones, and particularly Jagger, have only gained momentum. The band continues to thrive after 61 years, with the recent announcement of former Beatles members McCartney and Starr making guest appearances on their upcoming album.

In addition to his role with The Rolling Stones, Jagger has found success in a solo career, releasing four albums and venturing into acting.


Jagger, born into a middle-class family in 1943, expressed an early passion for singing. His childhood friend, Keith Richards, shared his love for American blues, leading to the formation of The Rolling Stones in 1961.


As Jagger celebrates eight decades of life, he maintains a slender physique and boundless energy. Despite heart surgery in 2019 and a bout with Covid-19, his commitment to fitness through running, boxing, cycling, and yoga has fueled his recovery.

The Rolling Stones’ leader, now 80, stands undeterred, gracing stages worldwide. Jagger, ever vibrant, states, “I don’t see this as my last tour. I love going on tour. I’ll only stop when I don’t enjoy it anymore.”


Knighted in 2003 for his significant contributions to the arts, Mick Jagger remains a towering figure in the world of music, proving that age is no barrier to his relentless pursuit of creativity.


The Rolling Stones, an enduring monument in the world of rock, have released 25 studio albums and achieved unparalleled success with approximately 200 million records sold. With numerous awards, including three Grammy Awards, The Rolling Stones have rightfully earned their place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the UK Music Hall of Fame. Both Billboard and Rolling Stone recognize them as one of the greatest bands of all time.
