John van Zyl as “Mick Jagger”
The first time I met John he told me that he was the singer in a tribute band. “Hey!” I said. “You do look like Steven Tyler from Aerosmith.” Then he punched my shoulder and said “try again”. After a few more hits and guesses, I found myself face to face with the monster that is Mick Jagger’s doppelganger.
Not only the look, but attitude and style to match.This guy stirs up the same danger as the Stones did in the sixties. Talk about lock up your daughters, and do us all a favour, whatever you do, don’t bring your grandmother to a gig. These old birds have good aim from throwing their knickers in the sixties, and they still do it.
John’s very adept at ducking them and (the next bit’s a secret so don’t tell anyone) he keeps the ‘pretty ones’ so he can wear them afterwards. John comes from the days when every motel room came with a bathtub full of Piranha and a spare TV to throw out the window.
John now claims he has absolutely no memories of piranhas, only the TVs, (nice try mate!!)
But, alas, those days of road trip excess and hedonism are long gone. John hasn’t done that sort of thing since at least October last year. He may blend in with the humans by day, but by night, he’s rockin’ out and out front doing Mick with the Rolling Stones Experience.
So, if you wanna see this wiry, hip thrusting, chicken dancing, outlandish character pushing the rock n’ roll boundaries, and you love the Stones, come along to one of our gigs, we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
