He also turned in some great musical performances with the Foo Fighters and Jeff Beck. It was a great way for Saturday Night Live, which hits and misses, to end their season. Jagger performed Stones classics, the Last Time, 19th Nervous Breakdown, It's Only Rock and Roll, and a new blues song about the 2012 US Presidential race, entitled “Tea Party.” Jagger’s new song included a peculiar line warning people on GOP presumptive nominee Mitt Romney, saying “don’t ever let him cut your hair.” The song also included the lines, “You’re going to raise about a hundred million dollars, or you’re going to end up so deep down in the shit.” The word "shit" escaped the censorship "bleep" and was clearly heard on national TV!
I will also miss Kristin Wiig, who is leaving the cast of SNL. Mick helped send her off in style, as he and the SNL cast sang to her She's a Rainbow and Ruby Tuesday.
Mick Jagger and the Rollings Stones are at the very top of the pantheon of Rock gods along with the Beatles, Elvis Presley, and Bob Dylan. It is great to see that Mick can still deliver, he is an awesome talent!
Below are some embedded videos from the performance below:
