Mick Jagger is sixty-nine.
Here’s a cool bit from Keif over at Letters of Note (complete with a Goon Show reference in the opening paragraph).

Zack Greinke is on his way out of Milwaukee.

"faraway eyes" is a crime against humainity
 That's what the preview button is for, homie
I love that Keith letter. Happy birthday, Mick.
Here's part of how he celebrated his 29th, here in Noo Yawk
I'm pretty sure that letter was in "Life." He details their whole meet up. An epoch-making event if there ever was one.
(Japanese corporations are always trying to say their shit is "epoch-making" in their annual reports and brochures. I've spent 20 years calling bullshit on them and deleting those words.)
 You kiddn'? It's hilarious.
"Church of the Sacred Bleeding Heart of Jesus, located somewhere in Los Angeles."
Yeah, "Faraway Eyes" just cracks me up.
Unintentionally or intentionally? I could see it being unintentionally, maybe...
Mick's lyrics are often hysterical. Remember "Dead Flowers"
Well, you're sitting back in your rose pink Cadillac
Making bets on Kentucky Derby Day
"Kentucky Derby Day"??
9) I don't know. Mick has always made me laugh. I always had the feeling it was part of his schtick to be a clown.
 I agree.
"There's some little jerk in the FBI keeping files on me 10-feet high, it gets me doooooown."
"People wearing plastic bags, directing traffic...."
Keith goes into the song writing process a lot in Life. He would give Mick a few words and the melody or a riff and Mick would just go off. Page after page on a legal paid.
Go ahead, bite the Big Apple, don't mind the maggots...
