Life of Mick Jagger

Mick Jagger is one of the most influential artists in the history of rock and roll. This famous, pouty idol of rock and roll is not only a musician, but has also dabbled with songwriting and acting. Known for his showmanship, Jagger is today, one of the greatest names in the world of music. He is also a founding member of ‘The Rolling Stones’. Mick Jagger carved a niche for himself in the music industry and went on to inspire generations of rock and roll enthusiasts. Born into a typical middle class family, he shared his passion for music with another famous artist, Keith Richards, from very early on. His unique vocal style and convulsive, often erotic/suggestive stage movements got the band, ‘The Rolling Stones’ nailed as the scalawag of the music industry, in contrast to the straightforward ‘Beatles’. During his heydays, he released a stream of hits with ‘The Rolling Stones’ including, ‘Respectable’ and ‘Hot Stuff’. Apart from his affiliation with the Rolling Stones, he also had a stunning solo career, delivering one hit album after another such as ‘She’s the Boss’, ‘Primitive Cool’, Wandering Spirit’ and ‘Goddess in the Doorway’. Career apart, he was a popular counterculture symbol, gaining much attention for his drug usage and on-stage notoriety.
