Does Mick Still Have The Fire?
Date: November 19, 2012 22:08

Not to put a damper on the coming shows, but does Mick still have the fire to pull this thing off?

I thought he was great ten years ago for the Licks tour, but it seemed he had lost something the last time out for ABB. Yeah, he still moved around and tried to look interested but something was different. He seemed to me at times as someone that was just going through the motions. Seemed he had lost that little spark of interest in his eyes. Maybe it's just age? Are any of you concerned as I am?

Yep to your thread title.
Nope...about concern.

Depends on the night - some shows are better than others. Was always thus.

He seems to have lost that "eye of the tiger" look. Can't put a finger on it but a little spark has gone out of the man, but maybe that's just what happens when you reach into your mid sixties?

He seemed to re-capture that spark during the filming of 'Shine A Light', but for a brief moment.

I was at the second to last gig on ABB at 02 London with my brother and we both thought Mick was at his brilliant best - the place rocked to the rafters and as I looked around during the encore of BS I knew there had to be more since it was soooo good.

"till the next time..."

Nice to hear, but that was over five years ago and he is 69 years old and each day creeping closer to 70. I will be paying close attention to his eyes on the December 15th PPV show.

The Fire? I wish he would put it out and concentrate on singing a bit more. His athletic dancing on stage is cool,noteable and nostalgic but it seems to take away from the vocal delivery, imho. peace

WTF? If ANY of them still have the FIRE it is Mick, he has never stopped, paused or anything, in all aspects of his life, from what we can see anyway..... he has a 7 foot tall woman, played the White House, did that heavysuper thing, and seems to have a great voice in everything I have heard in recent years. I may not like some choices he has made about some things... but that is not really my business, I give money /watch or not..... but as far as fire... Hell yes Jagger still has the fire.

Yeah, I liked him better when he didn't move around so much. Thought he was much more compelling in those days when they did the close ups.

Absolutely. Just stand there and sing, mick. But mick is the guy that doesn't want bald middle aged guys in the front row because he wants to feel young. I mean, on shine a light when he grinded christina aguilera it looked like a grandad on grandaughter assault of some kind. So i'm not entirely hopeful that he'll stop running around and just sing. The ego is still there no matter the age, so he'll be walking that tightrope of over exertion. Right on the edge of writing a physical check his 70 year old ass can't cash. And his singing will likely suffer for it. Give me standing still and singing anyday over the run around furiously and monotone bark deal.

These days? Not these decades! But still, he's the focus, Chuck is the engine, and Keith is there because it's not The Stones without his physically being there.

Mick has fire in recent non-stones live clips, his bonus tracks, and still sounds great on recent non-Stones music (although that's like putting really great bbq sauce on cheap bologna). Point is, he has fire in him. He just chooses not to use it with those people that he refers to as The Rolling Stones.

O'LANTERN, have you ever seen Mick Jagger and the Stones in concert?
Where and when?

Please don't mis-understand me here. I think the world of Mick. He is a real pro, but sometimes pros have a way of concealing their boredom. Mick is the greatest front man ever. Nobody comes close. However, I noticed on the last tour just a slight look of boredom and fatigue in his eyes at times. As if he was just going through the motions. Nothing real blatant, And you certainly didn't notice it at Rio. Seems like when the camera is rolling he finds a way to come through. It could be that since he has gotten older he is having to concentrate more and maybe that is what I am seeing. There was a certain spark in his eyes that seems to be missing since Licks. He still is able to "bring it" but his energy levels are definitely beginning to decline, if ever so slightly. It's OK though the man is human after all.

I don't know how the man does it, frankly. You could give me all the money in the world, and after i sang honky tonk woman 15 times i'd want to douse myself with gasoline and run into a campfire.

So you have noticed a difference when he performs with the Stones?

I would have to say that the best examples I can give you were towards the end of ABB. Maybe he had a cold in Seattle? They had just come from Chicago. He seemed a little flat at Austin and that is surprising since the cameras were rolling. He seemed a little more energetic at the Beacon but didn't quite maintain that form in Vancouver.

Father Time catches up with all of us. He is still giving maximum effort and that is all anyone can ask of any performer. The effort is there, but there are signs (albeit slight) that Father Time is slowly winning the battle. He always does.

Well, at least there are no signs of boredom here, but this isn't the Mick Jagger of ten years ago by any stretch of the imagination. He is still engaged but the eyes look a little tired. The Bones are not moving as fluid as ten years ago either. But what would you expect for someone that has been doing the same thing over and over for fifty years?
