Scary! 2

If there is one thing the world doesn’t need it is in-focus images of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. At least not any pictures taken in the last 10 years. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the Rolling Stones. But these guys are getting seriously old. Mick and Keith are both 62 years old now. I don’t want to sound like I am discriminating against old people, I’m not. But although these guys may be in excellent physical shape (they have to be to tour the way the do and go an play their shows 3-4 nights a week), their faces, especially Keith’s is showing the signs of hard living. This guy did a lot of drugs and smoked a lot of cigarettes over the years and it definitely shows on his face. He may be 62, but his face looks a lot worse than most 62 year olds.Keith Richards

I bring this up because the entertainment section of today’s Ann Arbor News (Jan 28, 2006) has a big article on the upcoming Super bowl halftime show which will feature the stones. The top half of the page is dominated by an unfortunately sharply focused image of the glimmer twins that appears to have been taken during their current tour. One look at these two could really scare young children. Frankly I prefer to just listen to the Rolling Stones rather than actually see them anymore.

    Evan saw the picture in the News and stated flatly, “The Rolling Stones are old.”

    The picture you have posted here actually makes Keith look a lot better than the one they ran in the News from their Montreal gig. I have to admit, though, that I’m impressed that Keith has even lived this long.

    He’s managed to keep the weight off, too. How has he stayed so trim? Really, he should be sharing his health and fitness secrets with the world. He could do a series on PBS like Gary Null, write a book (Keep Slim the Keith Richards Way), and sit down with Oprah to promote his lifestyle. He could brag to her about how he went for dental surgery and didn’t even need Novacaine. It doesn’t matter if it’s true or not, she’d believe him.
