Mick is a bunch of guys - some of then age gracefully at times. In "As tears go by" maybe a bit early, in "Fool to Cry" as a sensitive father, in great lyrical shape about dying in "It won't take long".

Or does this graceful-thing mean that everything has to be a prior generations music old school jazz, the american songbook, Tom Waits-like etc. - tiresome stuff like Crosseyed Heart?

Isn't enough that Keith does this?

Reading through this again got me to thinking regarding the great American songbook. There's nothing wrong with the great American songbook. It all depends on who is singing it. Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, Rosemary Clooney, Nat King Cole, Johnny Hartman, Carmen McRae, yes. Rock stars looking to make a buck off of the genre (I'm talking to you Rod), no no no. The same goes for rock stars looking to cash in on the soul music genre (again, I'm talking to you, Rod), pop hits covers, etc. If y'all ain't got the bang, don't beat the drum. Retire to your farm and show up on a cooking show every once and in awhile to show off your newly acquired kitchen skills so we all can go, wow, so that's what happened to....

Charlie's the Buster Keaton of rock ..... so deadpan funny

Totally agree... Charlie is the main reason I enjoy the interviews. Even though one can guess that he's not fond of interviews, I can always count on Charlieisms to leave me chuckling for months to come.

"Don't be like Michael Jackson"

that'll getcha out of the gate in the "aging-gracefully" category.

after that, you're on your own....

Prince seemed like he aged-gracefully for a spell there....till it came out he was dinged-up on fentanyl.

Fentanyl - I would add "that's the wrong road to go down" to my aging-gracefully tips.

In the end, if you are happy w/ yourself, then you have aged-gracefully...it's that simple.

I don't know Mick, but he seems happy to me. The "dating women younger than my kids" seems a bit arrested-development...but, whatever...who am I to say?

I always thought that the way he act on stage is silly (all that running etc.). In that sense nothing has changed.

Do you understand the feeling of Rock 'n Roll fun?
Aren't the real silly people in this world ... the politicians?
In his non-rock 'n roll life Mick is growing old gracefully enough, I'd say.winking smiley

Of all the rock stars, Ringo has aged the best. Who would have thought?

Its to make up for not being able to sing like he used to, he substituted distractions like running laps or the funny clothes. The opposite of graceful.

I think Bill Wyman makes a better Buster Keaton than Charlie. Totally had that gum chewing detachment going on while flopping down the bass lines.

Rockman - love it. Mick, as Andy Devine, finally gives in to carbs. Andy Devine was a great character actor. Check him out in 1939's Stagecoach, the movie which made John Wayne a star (and Wayne is really good in it). I remember Andy Devine as the sidekick in the 1950s t-v show about Wild Bill Hickcock, along with what I think was something later called the Andy Devine Show which featured Buster Brown shoes as its chief advertiser, if I am correct. We Boomers can have such odd recalls regarding t-v shows and who played in them.

And he was in the excellent Twilight Zone episode where he plays Somerset Frisby - a country bumpkin known for his tall tales and harmonica playing.

Mick could write a song for example, about the death of L'wren, that had emotional power like Wild Horses. That would be graceful.

Well he's only a sensitive father in the first verse. In the second verse he's out making love to some woman in the poor part of town. I think the song showcases his multiple personalities.

It's not a distraction. This was MJ from the beginning, and he can still do it. His singing is great. I guess some of the fans here spent too much time on the sofa with NFL teams, full rush to the fridge.Touchdown. Your team wins. Rah rah.

I guess Jagger can't afford growing old since he's recently started up a couple of new families and has kids in kindergarten and school ages. Maybe all his young lovers and kids keeps him young?
