The Rolling Stones, On Average, Are Older Than The US Supreme Court

Rolling StonesThe Rolling Stones recently celebrated their 50th anniversary, kicking off their tour with a huge show in London.

We all know the jokes about Keith Richards being immune to everything because he’s done every drug in the world, or that he’s actually a fairly well-preserved yet animated corpse who still plays guitar. These have been around for years.

This prompted some people to hold the Stones (a bunch of old guys who buck authority and play rock and roll) against another group (who actually are authority and probably listen to Celine Dion) – the US Supreme Court. And what did they find?┬áThe average age for the four living members of The Rolling Stones is around two years older than the nine justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Rolling Stones:

Mick Jagger, 69
Keith Richards, 68
Charlie Watts, 71
Ronnie Wood, 65

U.S. Supreme Court:

Antonin Scalia, 76
Anthony Kennedy, 76
Clarence Thomas, 64
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 79
Stephen Breyer, 74
John G. Roberts, 57
Samuel A. Alito, Jr., 62
Sonia Sotomayor, 58
Elena Kagan, 52

We’re not sure what this means, if it means anything at all. All we know is that it’s only rock and roll. And we do indeed like it.
