Best Wishes to Mick Jagger

Mick Jagger in 1976

Best wishes go out to singer Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones who a heart valve replacement procedure this past week. According to this article from Billboard Magazine:

Mick Jagger has completed his heart valve procedure in New York and is recovering and in great health, sources tells Billboard.

Doctors were able to access Jagger’s heart valve through his femoral artery and are now monitoring the Rolling Stones frontman for any complications that could arise from the procedure, including excess bleeding. On Sunday (March 31) the Stones announced they were rescheduling their North American No Filter Tour so that Jagger could have the procedure.

While the recovery time for the procedure is much shorter than surgery, Jagger must rest for four to five days so that the artery can heal without any severe bleeding issues. He could be up an moving in a few days, but will need some additional recovery time before returning to the stage.

I’ve long been a fan of The Rolling Stones since I first heard their hit “(Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” back in the 1960s. I bought many of their records and saw them in concert at Aloha Stadium in 1998.

I am sure Jagger had earlier health issues with drugs and alcohol that are typical to many rock stars. In later years it was reported that he straightened himself out. He certainly has  never gained much weight in all those years and has toured extensively throughout the world with a high energy show that he is well known for.

It is cool that Mick Jagger’s procedure did not require open heart surgery. That probably means at age 75 he is in better health than I was at age 58+ only a few years ago.

Imagine

The daily question is posted on the Question Diary app that I have installed on my Android device. Today’s question:

Imagine

Based on the many photos I posted to Facebook, this is the song that was recently matched up to me. John Lennon – Imagine – it’s a great song. Good match.

Quote a lyric from any song you like:

Imagine
By John Lennon

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us, only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace
You

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world
You

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will live as one.

Another song I would like to mention is “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” by Elton John, which my sister once said or indicated, reminded her of me.

My Hidden Self

January 30, 2019 – From that Questions Diary app on Android….

Is there a hidden self of you unknown to others, even your friends and family?

If there was one why should I disclose that?
