In the ever-evolving landscape of rock music, age is just a number for legendary figures Sammy Hagar and Mick Jagger. A recent playful challenge thrown by Hagar has ignited a friendly rivalry, sparking debates among fans about who will claim the title of the oldest active rock singer in the industry.
The challenge emerged from a thought-provoking article titled ‘Will Sammy Hagar or Mick Jagger Be The First 100-Year-Old Rockers?’

On the other side, a Jagger enthusiast confidently sided with the Rolling Stones’ iconic frontman:
“Sir Mick, and you know that! Sorry, man.”
The banter didn’t stop there
As fans extended the discussion to include Keith Richards, playfully speculating about his potential longevity:
“I don’t know. But Keith Richards will be here at the turn of the next century.”
And another fan added humor to the mix:
“Although I’d absolutely love for Sammy to be the one, it seems Mick has tapped into whatever Shaman/witch doctor/wizard is keeping Keith alive so…”
Sir Mick and you know that! Sorry man.

Keith Richards, often surrounded by legendary tales of his resilience, is currently 79 and shows no signs of slowing down.
His immortality, as perceived by some fans, adds a fascinating layer to the ongoing debate.
Sammy Hagar, at the age of 76, defies the conventional boundaries of age. His plans for a 2024 tour alongside Satriani, Bonham, and Anthony demonstrate his commitment to continue rocking. The tour, slated to kick off in July 2024 and conclude in August, promises a musical journey for fans eager to witness the Red Rocker in action.
Mick Jagger, born in 1943, remains a force in the music industry well into his eighties. As a founding member of the Rolling Stones, his influence spans over six decades. The band’s recent album, ‘Hackney Diamonds,’ released in October 2023, has been celebrated as their strongest work since ‘Some Girls.’
The Rolling Stones show no signs of slowing down, with a new U.S. and Canada tour scheduled to commence in April 2024. Their relentless pursuit of musical excellence indicates that age is not a deterrent for these rock legends.
As Sammy Hagar and Mick Jagger engage in this lighthearted competition, the prospect of them performing into their 100s is no longer a far-fetched notion. The current endeavors and plans of both artists suggest that they are not ready to exit the spotlight anytime soon. The race to become the oldest rockstar is on, and fans eagerly await the unfolding chapters of this spirited rivalry.
