Short introduction

Sir Michael Philip (Mick) Jagger, born July 26, 1943 in, Dartford, Kent – England is a rock musician, actor, producer and singer for the rock band The Rolling Stones.

Early life

Mick Jagger was born on July 26, 1943 in Dartford (Kent). His father worked as a sports teacher and his mother took part in the work of the Conservative Association. Michael studied at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Michael wasn’t interested in the university, the only thing he liked was singing. He tried to sing as loud as possible and was once so carried away that he bit the tip of his tongue. He soon left college as The Rolling Stones, which he founded with Brian Jones and Keith Richards, became more popular.


Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met on the playground. In 1958 Jagger became a member of the blues band Little Boy Blue & The Blue Boys. Keith enrolled in art school where he met Mick’s old friend Dick Taylor and his colleague Little Boy Blue. At the next meeting between Mike and Keith, the comrades agreed that Keith should audition Little Boy Blue & The Blue Boys. He got a job as a guitarist at Blues Incorporated and dreamed of starting his own band to which he wanted to invite his friend and colleague, blues pianist Ian Stuart. Charlie Watts also played for Blues Inc., meeting Brian, Mick and Keith at the end of the year. They often played together and also hired Dick Taylor and Ian Stewart.

In 1962 the name “Rolling Stones” flashed for the first time in the Jazz News. And on July 12, the group’s first official performance took place at London’s “Marquee” club. Dick Taylor left the band in September and in December Bill Wyman officially joined the group as a bass player. In January 1963, Charlie Watts joined the Stones as the successor to Mick Aivory.

The image created by Jagger on stage is unique. His voice, sometimes rough, sometimes feminine and soft, plump lips, a lascivious smile, explicit sexual movements during concerts in front of thousands of spectators, aggression, energy and at the same time stupidity and grimaces – all this made Jagger one of the most popular rock front men.

In an interview, Mick Jagger, comparing 1968 and 1998, said that when it came to sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, formerly sex in the Trinity was paramount and now drugs are in their place. Then Jagger said he had stopped drinking, smoking and using drugs. The reason for this decision was the concern for their own health, since Jagger is already middle-aged. “I appreciate my good name and don’t want to go through as the old ruin. After all, we are still “stars”, albeit with the status of “living legends”! “Said Mick Jagger.

Jagger’s achievements in the musical field were highly valued – on the 60th anniversary (2003) Queen Elizabeth II appointed Jagger a knight.

In 2010 Mick Jagger founded a new group called “SuperHeavy”. Among them were Mick, a former member of the Eurythmics project, Dave Stewart, Bob’s youngest son Marley Damian, singer Joss Stone and Indian composer AR Rahman, known for his soundtracks for Danny Boyle’s films “Slumdog Millionaire” and “127 Hours.” Sources close to the musicians report that SuperHeavy recorded a number of songs and even made a video for the song Miracle Worker.

In 2012 Mick Jagger took part in the famous stand-up comedy show “Saturday Night Live”, in which he not only appeared with Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire, but also demonstrated his acting skills in the miniature genre.

Mick Jagger had a successful heart surgery in April 2019.

Career highlights

Jagger was awarded a knightly order for services to popular music in the Queen’s 2002 Birthday Honors, and on December 12, 2003 he received the award from The Prince of Wales. Jagger’s father and daughters Karis and Elizabeth were present. Jagger said that the award was not important to him, but that he was “touched” by the relevance it had for his father because his father was “very proud”.

Jagger’s chivalry received mixed reactions. Some fans were disappointed when he accepted the honor as it seemed to contradict his stance against the establishment. A UPI report in December 2003 found that although Jagger is a patron of the British Museum, Jagger has no “known records of community service or public services”. Jagger announced that “apart from the Rolling Stones, the Queen is the best that Britain has to offer”, but was not present at the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Pop Concert at Buckingham Palace to mark her 50th accession to the throne. Charlie Watts was quoted in the book “According to the Rolling Stones” as saying: “Anyone else would be lynched: 18 women and 20 children and he will be knighted, fantastic!”.

Jagger’s chivalry also caused some friction with bandmate Keith Richards, who was confused when Jagger accepted the “poor honor”. Richards said that he didn’t want to take the stage with someone wearing a “crown and the old stoat. It’s about what the Stones are all about, isn’t it? “Jagger replied:” I think he’d probably like to get the same honor himself. It’s like getting ice cream – you get one and everyone wants one. ”
