Mick Jagger still rolling after 33 years
It's only rock 'n' roll but we like it! For nearly 40 years, Mick and the boys have had a torrid love affair with Toronto. From secret rehearsals and club gigs, to Keith Richards' heroin bust in 1977 and partying with Margaret Trudeau, the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band has called Toronto its home-away-from-home, and delivered the one thing they're famous for: Satisfaction. Ladies and gentlemen... The Rolling Stones.
• In 1995 Microsoft reportedly paid the Stones $8 million US to use Start Me Up -- off their 1981 Tattoo You album -- for its Windows '95 launch campaign.
• Each time the Stones hit the road in the last decade, they had the top-grossing tour of the year: $64.7 million US in 1999, $89.3 million in 1997, $121 million in 1994, $98 million in 1989.
• Forty Licks, a double-CD compilation released in 2002, sold 309,800 copies in US and 35,500 in Canada in the first week of sales, debuting at No. 2.
