The Age Game: Supreme Court vs. Rolling Stones

Posted on: | by Christine Anne George |

Rolling Stones Old

If you had to guess, who would you say—on average—is older: the members of the Supreme Court or the members of the Rolling Stones? Yes, this does seem like quite a random question, but someone out there who is definitely not me decided to crunch the numbers to get an answer.

People may have referred to the Supreme Court prior to Justice O’Connor’s arrival as the “Nine Old Men,” but the Supreme Court is by no means the elder of the two groups. That’s right. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood’s averaged age is 68 years and 297 days, while the Supreme Court—can you still name them?—is 66 years and 364 days.

Now the question is whether the Supreme Court show shows their elders the proper R-E-S-P—oh wait, that’s Aretha, isn’t it?
