Mick Jagger, the lead singer of The Rolling Stones, turned 80 on 26 July. But age is not a hindrance for rock’n’rollers, and that’s why on the same day the musician threw a grand party where he invited numerous famous friends. The celebration was held in the strictest secrecy, and the paparazzi managed to catch the birthday boy only in the morning at the exit from the elite nightclub Embargo Republica in Chelsea, UK. Jagger was wearing an emerald suit and satin polka dot shirt of the same colour, which he combined with black trainers and a scarf to match.

His current fiancĂ©e Melanie Hemric, ex-wife Jerry Hall, model daughter Georgia May Jagger and younger brother Chris Jagger gathered to congratulate the rocker on the milestone date. Mick’s long-time colleague, The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, also made an appearance at the party.

Of course, the celebration was not without Hollywood celebrities and legends of the music world: Leonardo DiCaprio, Lenny Kravitz and Baz Luhrmann, who filmed that year’s sensational “Elvis”, who were also caught in the paparazzi’s lenses. Also at the party was designer Stella McCartney, daughter of the equally legendary Paul McCartney of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones’ main competitors and rivals in the 60s music scene.

Mick (Michael Phillip) Jagger was born in 1943 in Dartford in the county of Kent. His parents had nothing to do with music: his mother was a member of the Conservative Association and his father worked as a PE teacher. Education also did not promise Jagger a musical career. However, in the London School of Economics and Political Science Jagger did not finish his studies. In 1962, he and his mates Brian Jones and Keith Richards formed a band that later made him world famous. Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts joined the Rolling Stones later.
