Fans also commented, with one adding: "What a beauty she was, so sad," while another wrote: "Happy birthday L'Wren. May she rest in peace. You Mick – get well soon."

At the beginning of the month, Mick underwent heart surgery to replace a heart valve. The operation was a success and the singer thanked his fans for their support soon afterwards. Most recently. Mick's bandmate Ronnie Wood gave an update on the singer's recovery in an interview with HELLO!. He revealed that he and Keith Richards had been keeping Mick entertained by sending him some funny homemade videos. "Sally and I went on a break to the Caribbean with Keith and (his wife) Patti and sent him videos of us playing and singing get well songs on the guitar. That cracked him up. We're all so pleased that he’s doing well," he said.

Since the legendary band postponed their nine-week No Filter world tour due to Mick’s surgery, Ronnie has been channelling his creative energy into painting five Picasso-inspired masterpieces, which pay tribute to the world famous rockers. And they've certainly brought a smile to Mick's face as he recovers. "He was amused and impressed!," Ronnie told HELLO!, adding: "He is doing really well. I spoke to him yesterday and he’s feeling great."
