Guess who just turned seventy. Rolling Stones front man Sir Michael Phillip Jagger, that’s who.

Born July 26, 1943.

Recently, a lock of Mick’s hair clipped by an old girlfriend in the 1960’s sold at auction for more than $6,000, about three times what people thought.

Jagger’s been married twice, he has seven kids, two Grammys, and 8 number-one singles.

Okay, so here’s a question you thought you’d never hear.

What two things do Mick Jagger and Pope Francis have in common?

Well, for one, they’re both in their seventies, which is the new fifty, by the way.

Mick’s 70 and the pope is 76.

And the second thing is that both of them have done gigs in front of a million-and-a-half fans on Rio’s Copacabana beach.

The pope’s had a little less strut, and, we can pretty much bet, no sympathy for the devil.
