Keith Richards Wishes Mick Jagger a Happy 80th Birthday: “Give me a call, let me know what it’s like”


The best 80th birthday greeting Mick Jagger could get is from his bandmate and writing partner for 60 years, Keith Richards.

“Give me a call, let me know what it’s like!” smirks Keef, who himself will turn 80 this December. Age turns out not to be an issue for these legendary rockers. The Stones are releasing a new album this fall and will likely go on one more US tour to promote it. Maybe this time around they’ll agree to be the Musicares People of the Year, something they’ve avoided for years.

Anyway, Mick always said he couldn’t imagine being rock and roller when he was 40. Happy Birthday, Mick!
