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.

Don't expect too much love from the ledge. Many fans blame you for what just occurred which seems unfair to me, as we still don't know exactly what happened.

Have a super, fun filled, Birthday!
And who should we blame, tell me? Hes FMs Daddy but then hes blameless.

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.

Bob Dylan is 77, Jerry Lee Lewis is 82, Willie Nelson is 85, Leonard Cohen was 79 during his last tour, Little Richard around 80, Chuck Berry in his late 80s.

After seventy or so, hardly anyone is a great

Mick Jagger is 75 and still rocking and filling stadiums along with Keith Richards, who looks like 125 but is actually only 75 !

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!

yes! i saw Tom Jones recently and his voice is unbelievable, plus he presents a fantastic, rocking, eclectic show - well worth the money and then some, everyone who loves rock or blues or just great music - and entertaining stories from the old times - should go see him at least once! and it's amazing how great his voice still is when compared to our macsters and their practically completely shut voices.

I got so many good laughs from this thread on all the people beating Mick's a$$ for his Birthday wishes. He totally deserves the abuse. LOL
