Happy 76th birthday to Mick Jagger! The Rolling Stone frontman is still killing it on tour this summer, making an amazing comeback after undergoing heart surgery this spring.

Thanks to the internet, I found some pretty great quotes from Sir Mick. Maybe they're not quite as outlandish as some stuff his buddy Keith RIchards has said, but they're still pretty good.

1. "I'd rather be dead than singing "Satisfaction" when I'm forty-five."

2. "All dancing is a replacement for sex."

3. "Don’t take life too seriously and always remember: it is just a passing fad."

4. "Of course we're doing it for the money. We've always done it for the money."

5. "I’m totally anti-nostalgia; I never listen to old Rolling Stones records. I’m not really interested in them. They’re funny, sometimes, to hear."


Mick may not be into nostalgia, but I am. Check out this old footage from the Mike Douglas Show. Be sure to watch until the end when Mike brings some freaked out fans on stage to meet the Stones.
