Default Happy Birthday Mick

Yeah, you’re as popular as a pocket protecter around here these days, but I probably wouldn’t have fallen in love with the music of Danny Kirwan, Christine McVie, Bob Welch, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Billy Burnette, Rick Vito, or Bekka Bramlett without you. Thanks!

you are being generous with the pocket protector comment, although, oodles of truth to it. Happy B-Day Mick--hope your cake doesn't blow up in your face!

According to Wikipedia Mick is 71.
Christine will be 75 on july 12
John will be 73 on november 26
Stevie is 70
Lindsey will be 69 on october 3

I don't know any singer who went on tour in his very late 70s or at 80 or more. Is there any?I have read Sinatra did a last show when he was 79, but not sure if it was within a tour. That's why I was saying in other post a reunion of the 5 guys lineup is increasingly unlikely each day. And who knows what will be the mood of those five in the next years.

B.B. King was in his 80s, Buddy Guy is 81, and John Mayall is 84.

I think Christine and John are the wildcards. IMO, If they bend to Stevie's directive to tour every 3 years, Christine will be 78 and John 76. That could be tough for those two, although John's health seems good. Actually Lindsey is probably the biggest wildcard---if they come a knockin' again, he should tell them to shove it. As a fan, I hope he wouldn't, particularly given his comments about the legacy, but as a human being, I would stand up and applaud if he told them to take a hike.

Ian Hunter is 79 years old, is still touring rock clubs, and is in the midst of a series of reunion concerts with two other members of Mott the Hoople.

Ringo Starr will be 78 in a few days and still playing gigs where he drums and sings lead.

I just saw John Sebastian (Lovin' Spoonful), age 74, play a solo gig.

Just some examples.

After seventy or so, hardly anyone is a great

Tom Jones has one of the most remarkable voices of all time if you ask me. It's hard to believe how WELL his voice held up. Enjoy the concert!

Something is always blowing up in his face, isn't it?! Happy birthday Mick. I wish you many uncomfortable meet and greets where disgruntled fans hold your feet to the fire.

Mick, you old DOUCHEBAG, I hope you live ~just~ long enough to realize what a douchebag you truly are.
