My dad loves the Rolling Stones. He loves their energy, their passion, their endurance – over fifty years performing but what he loves the most is how raw they sound after all this time.
Mick Jagger doesn’t exactly have a classically beautiful voice and he dances like a chicken, but everything he does is dripping with heart and soul.
When my dad is trying to make a point about going full force after a goal or pursuing a dream, he references Mick Jagger and the Stones.
People are drawn to truth and vulnerability. It’s not about hitting all the right notes. It’s not even about having perfect rhythm. It’s just about making people feel something deeply – this applies to anything – business, art, relationships – truth resonates.
True passion (which the artist and creator knows behind closed doors is obsession) is an emotion everyone wants to feel – it’s enchanting, it’s magnetic, it’s electrifying – there’s magic in putting it all out there for everyone to see.
