British rocker Mick Jagger celebrates 70th birthday

Mick Jagger – frontman and founding member of the Rolling Stones – is celebrating his 70th birthday. But the ageing rocker is showing no signs of slowing down.

The Rolling Stones hit their peak in the swinging sixties. “Satisfaction” in 1965 gave the group their first British and US hit.

Jagger is credited with turning a bunch of young rebels into what has been described as the “greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world.”

After half a decade on the stage, he and the Stones continue to satisfy global audiences. They recently wrapped up a nine month tour of Europe and North America and headlined Britain’s Glastonbury festival.

Jagger has had many ladies in his life over the years. He split from his second wife, model Jerry Hall, in 1999.
