Mick Jagger, the man whose dance moves were celebrated in a hit Maroon 5 song, turned 70 last Friday. Back in the day, the Rolling Stone front man said he couldn’t imagine jumping around and moshing on stage past the age of 30….well, that was that.
50 years, a knighthood (that’s Sir Mick, to you), Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction and banging very supermodel that came across his path: Sir Mick has truly lived sex, drugs and rock and roll. Everyone, from his contemporaries to the newbie rockers, have been influenced by his style.
Think what you might, but Sir Mick is undoubtedly one of the most influential people in rock and roll history; he has helped shape the genre into the diversity it enjoys today. In celebration of his 70th year, vintagerock.com compiled what they consider his 10 best performances ever. Do you agree?
Take a look, and happy birthday Sir Mick. Because only one man has the real moves like Jagger, and that is Jagger himself.
