At 80, Mick Jagger is still strutting his stuff on stage in front of sold-out stadiums and he’s still a sex symbol for many.
Jagger, the frontman of The Rolling Stones turned 80 on Wednesday.
Even though he underwent a heart valve replacement in 2019, he still exercises regularly which include running, yoga, cycling and kick-boxing.
The British band recently celebrated its 60th anniversary during its 14-date Sixty tour last year. The band was forced to cancel one of their shows when Jagger caught Covid.
The Sixty tour was the first time the band had to perform without its drummer. Charlie Watts was part of the founding members of the band and died in 2021.
The remaining members haven’t been settling into retirement as they recently announced that they plan to release a new album as part of a tribute to Watts.
Besides several number one hits like Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Not Fade Away, and Paint It, Black Jagger also teamed up with Dave Grohl from The Foo Fighters in 2021 to record Easy Sleazy.
Jagger also had several hits as part of his solo career including Don’t Tear Me Up.
In the 1960s the band and especially Jagger was hailed for pushing boundaries and bringing people together through rock ‘n roll.
