Mick Jagger seems to be recovering from heart surgery very, VERY nicely. Watch.

Mick Jagger needed a bum heart valve replaced earlier this year, a procedure that in the past would have required cracking open his chest, stopping the heart, and then mucking about with the organ exposed to the world. But not any more

The favoured procedure is something called a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), which involves reaching the heart through a vein in the groin. It’s much less invasive and recovery time is dramatically reduced. And it seems to work very well.

Take a look at this video of Mick preparing for the relaunch of the Stones’ No Filter Tour. This would be impressive enough for any 75-year-old man. It’s even more impressive for a 75-year-old who had heart valve replacement surgery just five weeks ago.

Doctors have given him a clean bill of health, so expect an announcement about rescheduling those postponed No Filter dates very soon.
