By Nikhil Mehta, 9:00 am on

Palm Desert, CA, senior home care providers know that age can sometimes limit seniors from doing the things they love, but that hasn’t stopped the following senior musicians. Check out what these five inspirational musicians have been up to long after turning 70.

1. Mick Jagger

Even in his 70s, the original lead singer of the Rolling Stones continues to entertain crowds all over the world. With more than five decades of thrilling experience on the global spotlight, Jagger has become a recognizable figure even among folks who aren’t into rock ‘n roll. In recent years, one of his notable performances included a 50th anniversary celebration of the Rolling Stones at Hyde Park in London.

2. Brian Wilson

The founder of the Beach Boys has enjoyed a prolific career in both the pop and rock genres. He might be known for his vocals in the group’s popular hits like “Kokomo” and “I Get Around”, but Wilson also has also pursued a successful solo career. In his early 70s, he managed to record and release the studio album titled No Pier Pressure. Additionally, Wilson has also performed live as part of brief reunion tours with his former band members. 

3. Aretha Franklin

The Queen of Soul has made an indelible mark on R&B and pop music with hits such as “Respect” and “Think”. Even as a senior citizen, Aretha Franklin makes regular appearances on prominent music awards programs such as those hosted by BET. She has even personally entertained President Obama on numerous occasions including during a performance at the White House in 2015.

4. Dolly Parton

Arguably the most successful female country musician, Dolly Parton has an impressive resume with more than 100 total singles. At the age of 70, she released her 43rd solo album titled Pure & Simple. The flamboyant Parton continues to be an inspiration for countless young country singers across America. 

5. Paul McCartney

Sir Paul McCartney took the music world by storm during his heyday with the Beatles. Decades after this iconic group dissolved, he has still remained relevant in the music sector on a global scale. Well past the normal retirement age, McCartney has particularly enjoyed performing in charitable events such as the 12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief in New York.
