The Rolling Stones are all over the place and up in your face again: first the storming Glastonbury come-back, then Jagger's hair sells for £4K, dinner with deputy PM Nick Clegg and that rather swanky yurt.
The Rolling Stones have introduced themselves to a whole new generation in this past year, after the initial unavoidable buzz of the announcement that they were going to headline June's Glastonbury Festival. The excitement snowballed as the instantly sold-out festival drew nearer and boy, the Stones didn't disappoint. For a start they played a monster set lasting well over two hours but the collossal crowd were entertained by a choir, fireworks, the crazy shapes thrown by the gurning, dancing lead singer and a giant, fiery, scrap metal phoenix.
Mick Jagger: Rock Grandfather & Icon.
Stones' frontman Mick Jagger has been particularly enjoying his fresh time in the spotlight, having been snapped out to dinner with his partner, L'Wren Scott, Deputy PM Nick Clegg and his wife Miriam, and TV presenter and journalist Mariella Frostrup and her husband Jason McCue, as reported byThe Daily Mail. Additionally, a lock of the 69 year-old's hair has been sold at auction, fetching £4,000. According to the BBC, the lock of Jagger's hair came with a note that said "Mick Jagger's hair after being washed and trimmed by Chris at Rose Hill Farm" and was sold by his former girlfriend, Chrissie Shrimpton.
Mick Jagger Still Has The Moves (And The Funky Outfits!)
Over half a century of fame has afforded the band some choice when it comes to who they hang out with and where they sleep. Jagger is said to have snubbed a dinner invitation from Prime Minister David Cameron due to not wanting to be a "political football," yet decided to dinner date with coalition partner, Nick Clegg. Ahead of their Glastonbury performance, Mick and his family stayed in a luxury £3,000 yurt (big tent) which offered them mirrors, candles, showers and toilets. Who can blame them? After all they've been around for 51 years as a band - that's over half a century of rock 'n' roll antics and 24 studio albums.
The Rolling Stones: Rockin' & Rollin' As Hard As Ever.
>The lead singer will turn 70 this month and as many 69 year-olds are looking to wind down and take life a little easier, The Rolling Stones are gearing up to play a massive outdoor concert in Hyde Park this Saturday (6th July). Perhaps there the key to Jagger's seemingly eternal youth lies in his DNA. Maybe the buyer of the hair wasn't so crazy after all.
