Sir Michael Jagger is 77 years old today! Quite unbelievable really, especially if you saw Mick performing with The Stones on their 2014 tour. He dances, grooves, shimmies and sashays across the stage like a (very fit) man 50 years younger! Here’s to Mick ~ long may he rock ‘n’ roll!
Mick was only 70 when this clip was filmed!
