The Internet reporter was wrong.
Back in June Mick Jagger and Bill Clinton sat next to each other during the World Cup. I found this out as I scanned an Internet story about this event. The reporter wrote that both Jagger and Clinton are “has beens.”
How can you call the President of the United States a has been? Sure he has been a president but the prestige stays with you for life and lives in history.
Mick Jagger, an integral part of my favorite group, will always be the prototype of lead rock singers. For nearly fifty years, his music has not faded away.
Apparently, to the author of that story, these old guys have lost all relevance mainly because they aren’t signing any new bills into law or recording new music at the moment. Should famous people stop showing up in public places after their fame is more past than present?
I doubt it. So they are old. Their identity and accomplishments will never leave them.
Internet reporter, may obscurity continue to hound you so that you will never become famous and irrelevant in old age.
