Tony Martin (Alvin Morris) (December 25, 1913 – July 27, 2012)


Martin’s career spanned over seven decades, and he scored dozens
of hits between the late-1930s and mid-1950s with songs such as
"
Walk Hand in Hand", "I Love Paris", "Stranger in Paradise" and
"
I Get Ideas".

In 1958, he became the highest paid performer in Las Vegas, signing
a five-year deal at the
Desert Inn, earning $25,000 a week.

In an unlikely pairing, Martin recorded for the Motown Records label
in the mid-1960s, scoring a minor hit with the record "Talkin’ To Your Picture".

The musician, actor, film producer and Rolling Stones front man
Mick Jagger was born in Dartford, Kent, England on July 26, 1943.

Raised in a middle-class English family, Michael Philip Jagger

1960s, Jagger, along with Brian Jones, Keith Richards and Ian
Stewart, founded the Rolling Stones, which would become one
of the world’s most popular and enduring rock and roll bands.
The group’s many hit songs include “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”
