Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood has shared a timeline of photographs with frontman Sir Mick Jagger to mark his milestone birthday.

Wood was one of the first famous faces to pay tribute to Sir Mick who turned 80 on Wednesday, sharing a series of intimate pictures of the pair from their illustrious careers.

The pictures show Sir Mick as a seemingly ageless symbol of energy and rebellion, with some highlighting the group’s money-spinning sell-out tours, filling vast stadiums around the world thanks to Sir Mick’s energetic performance style.

Rock musician Wood, 76, captioned the Instagram post: “Happy 80th birthday to @mickjagger!”

Meanwhile, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards also paid tribute with a video message on Instagram, while sat at the piano.

He said: “Hey Mick, I guess long may we keep saying this to each other.

“Happy birthday Mick, have another good ‘un and give me a call, let me know what it’s like.”

The official Rolling Stones Twitter account told the ever-energetic frontman to “keep on rockin” as it shared a two-minute-long video of his best moments.

Sir Mick, who posted on Instagram to say thank you for the “birthday wishes”, shares his birthday with rock band Queen’s drummer Roger Taylor, who turned 74 on Wednesday.

Former British model Pattie Boyd, the ex-wife and muse of Beatles star George Harrison and Eric Clapton, tweeted: “Two birthdays today!!

“Many Happy Returns to both Mick Jagger and Roger Taylor!”

A birthday tribute was also paid by the official Twitter account of late musician Jack Bruce, sharing a picture of Sir Mick playing with Bruce at The Ealing Club in the early 60s.

The post said: “Here’s Jack and Mick playing together in the early days of their careers with Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated at The Ealing Club in the early 60s.”

While crime writer Sir Ian Rankin made reference to the Rolling Stones’ hit track You Can’t Always Get What You Want with his birthday message on Twitter.

He said: “Happy 80th (!?!!) birthday to Mick Jagger. Present-wise, hope he gets what he wants…”
