Mick Jagger discusses mortality and how relationships changed: ‘As you get older, a lot of your friends die’

As The Rolling Stones release their latest album, “Hackney Diamonds,” frontman Mick Jagger is getting brutally honest about aging.

In an interview with The Guardian, Jagger put it plainly, saying, “I hate to say this: as you get older, a lot of your friends die.”

He continued, noting that even with age, “it doesn’t get easier at all. There’s a lot of people around your age, they’re dying all the time. I don’t have any friends older than me, only one. Apart from the band, all my friends are much younger.” 

Jagger added, “It’s easier that way!”

“How long can you really do it? It’s like asking: how long can someone go on playing for England? Not long, is usually the answer,” Jagger told The Guardian.

He continued, noting their attitudes about recording have changed with time. 

“I do think about it. But I write all the time. You’ve just got to keep writing, and now everyone [in the band] can see they can record quite easily,” Jagger said.

He added, “It was only three weeks in the studio. It’s not difficult. Too much angst went into recording before. If it’s no good, it’s no good; if that track doesn’t work, another one will. Do it!”
