There is a line Almost famous Where Steelewater’s manager (played by Jimmy Fallon) announced: “If you think Mick Jagger is still trying to be a rock star at the age of 50, you’ve made a terrible mistake.”
I couldn’t help but wonder how incredibly wrong the character’s prediction was last night, just three weeks after the devastating loss of drummer Charlie Watts to see three Septuagenarians take to the stage in the second episode of two shows at the 5.5 billion Sophie Stadium in Los Angeles.
