Mick Jagger.

The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger is no stranger to the Ed Sullivan Theater. The Stones first hit the stage there in 1964. But on Tuesday night, Jagger returned to the landmark for a first-time appearance on "Late Show With David Letterman."

To mark the occasion, Jagger delivered the night's Top 10 rundown, featuring everything he's learned after 50 years in the biz -- from drugs to ... Doris Goldblatt?!

Here's the full list:

10. Nobody wants to hear anything from your new album.

9. Never take relationship advice from Phil Spector.

8. Before shouting, "Hi, Seattle," make sure you're in Seattle.

7. You don't earn a cent when someone does a song about having "Moves Like Jagger."

6. Everybody you meet after you become famous is only interested in you as a person.

5.  Song royalties are great, but even they can’t match the guaranteed cash flow from a reverse mortgage.

4. A good way to keep yourself entertained is to sign every tenth autograph "Doris Goldblatt."

3. Be considerate of other hotel guests -- trash your room by 10 p.m.

2. You can't always get what you want, like a good joke on the Top 10 list.

and …

1. You start out playing rock 'n' roll so you can have sex and do drugs, but you end up doing drugs so you can still play rock 'n' roll and have sex.
