The Rolling Stones Are Older Than the Supreme Court

The Rolling Stones Are Older Than the Supreme Court

“The average age for the four living members of The Rolling Stones is about two years older than the nine justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood have an average age of 68 years and 297 days, while the Supreme Court justices’ average is 66 years and 364 days. That makes the rock band one year and 10 months older than the members of the highest court of the United States.”
