Lawrence added that the reaction which followed Mick’s hilarious statement was a ‘roar’ as they had the “ridiculous thought that a young man would be singing rock ‘n’ roll when he was 60.”

He also made another interesting revelation concerning Mick’s interest. He disclosed that he had a strong affinity for business and even considered exploiting a career in Insurance. However, this isn’t too surprising considering Jagger was enrolled at the London School of Economics.
