Mick Jagger is about to hit a new milestone few rockers likely hold in sight: he's going to be a great-grandfather. According to the Guardian, Jagger's daughter Jade says that her own 21-year-old daughter Assisi is due to give birth in early 2014.

The 70-year-old Rolling Stones frontman has seven children and four grandchildren. Jade Jagger told the paper that the new milestone doesn't seem like such a huge deal to him now. "I think making Mick a grandfather obviously had a big impact whereas, now, making him a great-grandfather is no longer particularly fascinating," she said. "My dad has always been great at keeping the family together and having those important moments – Christmas parties, his birthday. We'll be spending New Year's Eve together, nearly all of us [in Mustique]."

Jagger and the Rolling Stones hit another rare rock n' roll milestone earlier this year as they celebrated 50 years together as a band. After marking the occasion with their 50 and Counting tour of North America and performing for the first time at the Glastonbury festival in England, they're set to hit the road yet again. Earlier this week, they announced that they'll be heading to Adelaide, Australia on March 22nd, 2014, with more Australia and New Zealand dates in the works.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
