Happy Birthday to the Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger, who turns 75 today (July 26th)!!! Jagger will always be best known as being's rock's preeminent frontman and along with Keith Richards has written some of the most enduring and important songs of the rock era, including "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," "Under My Thumb," "Gimme Shelter," "You Can't Always Get What You Want," "Ruby Tuesday," "Get Off My Cloud," "Brown Sugar," "Let's Spend The Night Together," "As Tears Go By," "Street Fighting Man," "She's A Rainbow," "19th Nervous Breakdown," "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "Honky Tonk Women," "Angie," "Paint It, Black," "Tumbling Dice," "Waiting On A Friend," "Miss You," "Emotional Rescue," "Fool To Cry," "Wild Horses" "Sympathy For The Devil," "It's Only Rock N' Roll," "Start Me Up," and literally hundreds of others.

Just released is the Stones' latest vault release -- From The Vault: No Security - San Jose 1999, which is available on DVD, Blu-ray, DVD/CD, DVD/LP and digital formats. The tracklisting for From The Vault: No Security - San Jose 1999 is: "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "Bitch," "You Got Me Rocking," "Respectable," "Honky Tonk Women," "I Got The Blues," "Saint Of Me," "Some Girls," "Paint It Black," "You Got The Silver," "Before They Make Me Run," "Out Of Control," "Route 66," Get Off Of My Cloud," "Midnight Rambler," "Tumbling Dice," "It’s Only Rock N' Roll (But I Like It)," "Start Me Up," "Brown Sugar," and "Sympathy For The Devil."

Back in December 2016, Jagger became a father for the eighth time when his then-29-year-old girlfriend, ballerina Melanie Hamrick, gave birth to his fourth son, Deveraux.

It was announced earlier this month that the Rolling Stones have expanded their decade-long global deal with Universal Music Group (UMG). The press release announcing the new contract explained UMG will continue to distribute the band’s catalogue from 1971 through the present. UMG's subsidiary Eagle Rock, which handles "music programming for broadcast, DVD, Blu-Ray, TV and Digital Media" announced six upcoming concert film re-issues currently on the schedule -- Atlanta (1989); Steel Wheels (1989-90); Voodoo Lounge (1994); Bridges To Babylon (1997-1998); Four Flicks (2002); and Bigger Bang (2005-2006) -- although no street dates were made available. In addition to the Stones' past and current recorded output, UMG will play a key role in the group's merchandising:

Last January, the Stones' 2016 return to their roots, Blue & Lonesome, won the Grammy for Best Traditional Blues Album. Although it topped the charts in no less than 10 countries, including Britain -- Blue & Lonesome -- the Stones' first studio set in over a decade, fell short Stateside, peaking at Number Four. In addition to England, the album went all the way to Number One on the Australian, Belgian, Dutch, German, Norwegian, Scottish, Swedish, and Swiss album charts.

Bad news came to Jagger in March 2014 with the suicide of his longtime girlfriend, 44-year-old L'Wren Scott. He rallied for a string of massively successful international Stones dates, as well as serving as the co-creator and executive producer of HBO's ill-fated '70s music drama, Vinyl, which also featured his son, 32-year-old James Jagger.

Mick Jagger, who over the years has also dabbled with acting and producing, told us that for a project to truly be successful, it needs to connect with its entire prospective audience: "When you put out a piece of work, you want to have, first, you want to feel 'I like it' and the rest of the musicians, band, whatever, have to like it -- everyone has to like it. And then your friends have to like it, and then you want the public to like it, and you want the critics to like it, so it can work on many levels. So you can be very happy with an album, but nobody else (laughs) likes it -- that's not a success. But it's a big success if you get all of those groups liking it."
