With 2012 rolling to a close, the Rolling Stones are squeezing the last bit of juice out of their (well-deserved) 50th anniversary celebrations, including stopping off at the Late Show to share some decades-honed rock ‘n’ roll wisdom.
An enthusiastic Mick Jagger put the moves on David Letterman’s audience, blowing kisses and waving to the crowd. “I don’t deserve it but thank you!” he said before launching into his “Top Ten Things I, Mick Jagger, Have Learned After 50 Years in Rock ‘n’ Roll.” Among the gems: “before shouting ‘Hi, Seattle,’ make sure you’re in Seattle”; and “a good way to keep yourself entertained is to sign every tenth autograph ‘Doris Goldblatt.'” Oh, and “never take relationship advice from Phil Spector.” Noted.
Check out the video, featuring exclusive footage from backstage, below. Meanwhile, I’ll be selling my Doris Goldblatt autograph on eBay.
