“What a drag it is, getting old,” is a lyric Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has sung thousands of times in his career. Today, Jagger turned 77. The rocker’s birthday was met with praise online as fans tweeted and posted tribute videos to the iconic singer.
To celebrate his birthday we’ve gathered some Jagger moments Bostonians might never forget, like the time Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were arrested at a Rhode Island airport just hours before playing a set at the Boston Garden.
The Rolling Stones played their most recent Boston-area show last July at Gillette.
In this fan-uploaded concert video from that concert, Jagger can be heard saying, “This is our 29th show in Boston. I want to thank you very much for coming to see us so many times. We all appreciate you.”
In another video Jagger says, “This is the third time we’ve been in this great stadium [Gillette].”
Doesn’t look like such a drag after all.
