Back in the Stones age

While it may be true that the Rolling Stones have certainly gathered no moss career-wise, the British rock band’s members may be older than you think.

The Stones may have that eternal cool factor, with their still-tight jeans and shaggy ’70s hair, but, on average, they still have more birthday candles on the cake than the justices on the Supreme Court.

The Stones, who celebrated their 50th anniversary last week, are almost two years older on average than the nine Supreme Court justices.

Band mates Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood have an average age of 68 years and 297 days; the Supreme Court justices are an average 66 years and 364 days-old.

While the age gap may not seem like a lot, our guess is most people would have thought the Stones had more time on their side.

The AP also reported the individual ages for both groups:

Rolling Stones:

Mick Jagger, 69

Keith Richards, 68

Charlie Watts, 71

Ronnie Wood, 65

U.S. Supreme Court:

Antonin Scalia, 76

Clarence Thomas, 64

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 79

Stephen Breyer, 74

John G. Roberts, 57

Samuel A. Alito, Jr., 62

Sonia Sotomayor, 58

Elena Kagan, 52
