Rock star Jagger now a pensioner

Mick Jagger officially hits pension age today, when he reaches the grand old age of 65.

Mick Jagger officially hits pension age today, when he reaches the grand old age of 65.

But the Rolling Stone, who famously "can't get no satisfaction", shows no sign of slowing down in his twilight years.

Though it is understood that rather than having a lavish party, the singer is celebrating quietly with friends and family.

Jagger has recently been dating model L'Wren Scott, who is more than two decades his junior, as well as raking in the cash from the band's hugely successful A Bigger Bang tour.

He was executive producer on the Rolling Stones film 'Shine A Light'.

The star was quoted last October by the BBC as saying: "I'm sure the Rolling Stones will do more things and more records and more tours.

"We've got no plans to stop any of that really."

His image now is not perhaps as wild as fellow Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, who recently entered rehab after leaving his wife behind while he went to Ireland with a Russian cocktail waitress.

Jagger was born in Dartford on July 26, 1943 and his father was a teacher.

He attended the London School of Economics, but never completed his course, leaving to pursue his musical dreams.

Jagger's love life has seen him linked to a string of glamorous women, including Marianne Faithfull and Carla Bruni, now married to French president Nicolas Sarkozy.

He has tied the knot twice, to Bianca Jagger and Jerry Hall and has a brood of seven children.

Hall recently auctioned off the dress she wore to wed Jagger, with the proceeds going to a charity for the homeless.
