R.I.P. L'Wren Scott

Update: Mick Jagger has released a statement on his website, which now features a photo of L'Wren.

I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way.

Mick Jagger Love Letters Headed to Auction

Marsha Hunt, the mother of Mick Jagger's first child, Karis, is broke and has decided to let Southby auction 10 of his love letters to her written in 1969.

Mick Jagger Turns 69, Rolling Stones Turn 50

Happy Birthday to Mick Jagger, who turned 69 on July 26.

“Gimme Shelter“ (1969)
“You Can’t Always Get What You Want“ (1969)
“Sympathy for the Devil“ (1968)
“Street Fighting Man“ (1968)
"Dead Flowers" (1971)
