It's Mick Jagger's Birthday!
I wonder what the man who has everything, and has done everything, does for his birthday... Maybe he works. ¬†Mick Jagger's doing another project with Martin Scorsese, the amazing award winning director who did a killer job on the concert documentary of The Rolling Stones called "Shine a Light."¬† We saw it on the IMAX screen and it was fantastic!
The new project is a dramatic mini series for HBO tentatively called "The History of Music" which will follow two friends through 40 years¬†in the music business.¬† I wonder if Mick will be acting in the show, or if he's just a money man and creative mind behind the project.¬† I guess we'll be finding out in the weeks to come.
Amy blogged about The Stones upcoming world tour to commemorate their 50th anniversary.¬† It kicks off in 2011, and goes through 2012, when the world is supposed to end or something.¬† I wonder what they had to do to get Charlie Watts to agree to touring again?¬† Before the last tour, he said he wouldn't do another one.¬† Money talks.
Meanwhile, happy 67th birthday, Mick.¬† I can't believe that man is 67.¬† Dead sexy, and he still moves like a feline on stage.¬† He defies time.¬† I think there must be¬†a picture of Mick somewhere in one of his mansions that is getting¬† old and ugly, like in the Oscar Wilde book "The Picture of Dorian Gray."¬† I love this quote from the book:¬† "How sad it is that I shall grow old, and horrible, and dreadful.¬† But this picture will remain always young.¬† It will never be older than this particular day of June...If it were only the other way.¬† If it were I who was to be always young and the picture that was to grow old!¬† For that-for that- I would give everything!¬† Yes, there is nothing in the whole world that I would not give!¬† I would give my soul for that!"¬†
Does "Sympathy for the Devil" come to mind when you read that passage?¬†
Happy Birthday Mick!¬† Stay well and beautiful and keep rockin' because Portland would sure love to see you in the Rose Garden again!!
