On average the Stones older than US Supreme Court
NEW YORK (AP) - The Supreme Court used to be called Nine Old Men. That’s nothing compared to the ageless Rolling Stones. The justices on average are the kid brothers and sisters of the forever young rock n’ rollers.
The average age for the four living members of The Rolling Stones is about two years older than the nine justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood have an average age of 68 years and 297 days, while the Supreme Court justices’ average is 66 years and 364 days. That makes the rock band one year and 10 months older than the members of the highest court of the United States.
The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year with a five-date tour in New York, New Jersey and London, where the first show kicked off Sunday night.
