Mick’s Birthday

One of my generation’s icons had a birthday a couple of days ago.  Mick Jagger turned 67 years old on July 26th.  Although the lines are deeper, the skin is sagging more, he is still full of dynamic energy and talking about their farewell tour.  Yup, the Rolling Stones will embark on large tour next year.  Their last and final big tour.  The Stones are facing their senior years and want this one last tour to celebrate almost 50 years of being together and to call it quits.  It’ll be their last full scale tour. Ronnie Woods is 63, Keith Richards is 66 and Charlie Watts will turn 70 while the band is on tour.  I find it depressing to see these guys at the end of their career.  I saw them in concert multiple times for the Bridges to Babylon tour and I’ll never forget it.  My kids were raised listening to the Stones and I took one of my daughters to see them during that time.  I was even a member of their fan club! If you have an opportunity to see them on this last tour, do it.  They are part of the history of rock and roll.

hi TattooSue,

I’m a Stones fan since first buying Honky Tonk Women 45 as a kid, so you’re definitely preaching to the choir with me!

Thought I’d say hi because I do artwork with another kind of needle. My Needle Habit is rock n roll embroidery – and more – on vintage linen.

Check out my Etsy shop to see what I mean…

It’s not only rock n roll….! 😉

Nice to hear from another fan – they are the best. Checked out your store. Cute and unique! – I don’t think I’ve seen anything along that line before. Good luck to you.
