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.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
