Under the knife! Mick Jagger is expected to undergo a heart valve replacement surgery in NYC this week at the age of 75.
But while the Rolling Stones frontman undergoes the risky procedure, it seems his normally poor-health stricken bandmate Keith Richards is ironically knocking every one of his health issue and seemingly challenging immortality!
Mick’s bandmate has always smoked like chimney and he’s known for his love for drugs and alcohol, unlike Mick who is known for his healthy lifestyle that includes a healthy diet, fitness regimen, and a slew of skincare products.
Over the years, Richard has endured some bizarre s–t — from Nazi bombing raids during his youth, almost getting electrocuted onstage in 1965, nearly burning to death, and one too many terrible run-ins with cocaine.
However, Keith is somehow the one sending Mick the well wishes after the band was forced to postpone their tours for his health crisis.
“A big disappointment for everyone but things need to be taken care of and we will see you soon. Mick, we are always there for you!” Keith wrote on social media.
Mick is expected to make a full recovery after the procedure, but until then, the Rolling Stones are on a brief hold.
“Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment,” said a vague statement shared to the group’s Twitter account on Saturday, March 30.“The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible,” the note continued.
On Sunday, March 31, Mick also released a statement apologizing to fans who already bought tickets. “I really hate letting you down like this,” the rocker tweeted.
Mick continued, “I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”
