To the Editor:
I think we all enjoyed your review of the recent Rolling Stones show in Philly. I’d like to add a few bits of light Stones trivia:
A noted workout junkie, Mick Jagger has been known to prance over 10 miles onstage per gig (or, in FitBit speak, over 20,000 steps).
Speaking of band-member longevity, pianist Chuck Leavell has been with the Stones for more than 35 years. Before that, he was a member of the Allman Brothers Band and that’s his hot piano you hear their 1973 classic, “Jessica.” Chuck is also a professional tree farmer and has a 2,500-acre farm in Georgia.
Former bassist Bill Wyman left the Stones in 1993, but remains the oldest Rolling Stone at 82 years of age. Apparently, time is on Bill’s side.
