The Rolling Stones are a rock group… a really, really old rock group. They are still doing their thing–after fifty plus years of rocking & rolling. Absolutely incredible!
They still have “the juice.”
Mick Jagger, the lead singer was recently discussing the groups’ allure after so many years:
Rock and roll requires a certain amount of energy. You just can’t do rock ‘n’ roll sitting on a bicycle going 10 miles an hour. You really have to wind the energy level up–that’s part of the main ingredient. It’s not like you have to be a brilliant musician, but you need a kind of explosive kind of musical energy to play rock ‘n’ roll well. And we have that.
These lads aren’t the best in the business. They aren’t the best singers, dancers or musicians. They certainly are not the best looking people on stage. But they still have “the energy.
And it is “energy” that still sells. Always has. Always will.
Whether you are 15 years old, or going on 70 like Mick the key word is energy.
That’s what people buy. That’s what we want to see.
You don’t have to be the best guitar player in the world. You don’t have to be the best anything in the world. But you do need the energy to succeed.
Oh, and one more thing—enthusiasm! Show me both energy and enthusiasm and you’ve got something working for you.
Hey, if Mick Jagger, at 70, can show a little juice, perhaps there is still hope for you and me.
This week, let’s get jazzed. Let’s rev up those engines. Let’s show people that we are alive, happy and glad to be seen. This week, make others glad they know you. Unleash your inner rock star!
