Mick Jagger can’t get no satisfaction but he sure can sing it even now in his 70’s. Way back in 1975 during an interview with People magazine (when he was only about 31) Mick proclaimed “I’d rather be dead than sing Satisfaction at 45.” So of course I had to draw a caricature of Mick Jagger in a meme along with that familiar quote.
In my teens I can picture thinking about people 15-20 years older and thinking to myself “I will no longer do that when I am THAT old”. Now you look at whatever your age is and think damn I am still young enough to pull it off. Mick still struts it like a peacock without needing a cane yet so keep at it as long as you can Mick.

You go Mick!
Great job on the artwork, Bearman!
Hey, if he can still remember the words and the dancing, and there are people willing to pay to sit him get it, by all means, Mick, do you.
Awesome job on the Jagger-ature, by the way, B!
I hope he remembers lines better than I can understand your first sentence haha
He still has more energy on stage than most of today’s pop stars
He needs to eat a sandwich haha
Thanks for mentioning my name, Bearman. It’s Cha at ‘Dontchawannadream’ but no big deal…
Awesome post by the way.
I fixed it. Had your twitter name in my head haha
When you get to whatever age you thought was old, it magically isn’t old any more.
Now I think…wow someone died in their 70’s is much too young. NOt that I am anywhere close to 70
I know what you mean. I thought Elvis was fairly old when he died, and he was only 42. How our perspectives change.
But he was still bigger than me haha
How much is 42 in wombie years?
I don’t think it would be wise to divulge that information publicly.
Never listen to Mick Jagger, unless he’s singing. 😉
Funny I am just the opposite
He’s still got it doesn’t he. Yes he does.
You are doing fantastic with your charity challenge. Wow.
Have a fabulous day. 🙂
Thanks for all the support Sandee
Mick is amazing.
Years ago when the Rolling Stones were the halftime act at the superbowl (05, 06?), I suggested that they change the lyrics to “I can’t get no social security”. Yeah I know they are British but their songs have a big appeal to Americans.
That would be a new top seller to all the baby boomers
Steven Tyler could use a lesson or two from him!
He’s still rockin it.
Mick’s the man but I didn’t realise he was in his 70’s. I thought my Dad was old when he was younger than I am now. Excellent caricature of the old guy Bearman
I reached the age that my dad was when I was born a few years back. Damn I feel old.
you ARE old Bearman! We all know yer green hair is dye job! [smirk]
Nice job on the jag, pouty lips and all!
Thx. The hardest part was figuring out how far to put his mouth from his nose haa
I believe that when an artist re-records an old hit of theirs, it is not to freshen it up for new listeners, but to change it up because they are so bored with singing that same song over and over again. 😉
That’s why I can’t understand all you that chug out strips day after day. I get bored drawing the same characters haha
The man cannot be stopped!
Well maybe a broken hip
Sometimes it makes me cringe when I think how old some of our “rock stars” are! Who knew with the proliferation of sex & drugs they would even make it past their 40’s?
That’s for sure. Some have been medically preserved.
I believe Paul McCartney no longer sings “When I’m 64”
That’s cuz he didn’t lose his hair
Hey! You! Get off of my lawn! Great job, Bearman!
and off of my cloud
In my teens I was a really fast sprinter. I couldn’t understand how people couldn’t ran as fast as me.
Now in my mid 30’s I have found that jogging 6 miles is easier than sprinting 100 yards! Jogging is like taking a stroll where as sprinting feels like being run through a trash compactor!
Getting older hurts in so many ways.
I was fast for about 50 feet and then I was the slowest
Sounds like me in the 400 meter dash.
Rock stars don’t age very well. It’s better to be a country guy! Johnny Cash never looked too old. Mick kinda does, sadly. 🙁
Well until he did the video Hurt.
Great Caricature! I remember saying we’d better go see the Stones in 1981 because who knew how much longer they’d be around!!
And now we are saying it again haha
