Squeezing With Jagger

It’s only rock and roll… but I like it. Mick Jagger was both host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live this past weekend and, for his first number, he performed the Rolling Stones classic “The Last Time” while backed by Arcade Fire. It isn’t everyday you see the lead singer of the Stones shimmying with an accordion player (in this case, Arcade Fire’s RĂ©gine Chassagne), so savor this image while you can.

  3. Nice! Didn’t realize what a giant Win Butler was.

  4. I wondered who the woman playing the accordian (Regine Chassagne from Arcade Fire) on “This Will Be the Last Time” was…It seemed like she and Mick had a connection…even before he leaned over and kissed her at the end of the song! Mick has always been amazing…but being still that way all these years later is just plain mind boggling…way to go Mick…we love you 4 ever!

  5. My father brought me his old accordion and I have no idea what to do with it. I’m sure because of the age of it should be worth a little bit of money. Do you have any suggestions on what to do or where to go? I live in Manchester NH.

    Thank you,

  6. I didn’t see this post until 12/22/12, so you may already have dispensed with it, but I have played accordion for almost 50 years now, and here’s what I would advise…Find a local accordion club, (google accordion clubs and ________________
    (your local area) attend a meeting and ask one of the members who plays and regularly does repairs their opinion. The actual age of an accordion in years has little relevance to its value…they are rather delicate internally, and if they have been subject to extremes of heat, especially, or cold, they may have more value as kindling than as a musical instrument. In any case, they should be refurbished about every 20 years or so, and if this has been done, and care taken to where and how they were stored, and you are not going to play it yourself, you may have an instrument that has value not as an “investment”, something you could sell for a profit, but instead something that could be put into the hands of a young person who cannot afford an instrument but would love it, play it and care for it as it deserves.
