The Rolling Stones frontman, 76, is still rocking with the band, who not long ago accomplished their No Filter Tour after currently being compelled to postpone dates in the U.S. even though Mick underwent emergency coronary heart surgical treatment.
Having said that, the star is back battling in good shape and wowing crowds – which, in accordance to his ex-accountant Laurence Myers, is a little something he failed to feel he’d continue to be doing.
Laurence looked after the band’s earnings early in their career and, talking at the start of his autobiography, Hunky Dory (Who Knew?), he recalled the (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction hitmakers‘ preliminary struggles with income.
„The Rolling Stones had early success but they weren’t producing any income,“ he remembered. „I did their 1964 tour accounts and they manufactured very little from it. A single working day Mick and I were being speaking about a wide range of items and pensions arrived up… He said, ‚Pensions, perhaps I really should imagine about it? I will not be singing rock ’n‘ roll when I’m sixty.'“
Acknowledging the band’s incredible results, he added: „Who realized back again then what we know now?“
