Mick Jagger

Biography

Sir Michael Phillip Jagger (better known as 'Mick Jagger', born 26.7.1943)

Mick Jagger is an English rock singer who rose to fame in the 1960s as frontman of The Rolling Stones.

Mick Jagger: Childhood

Mick Jagger was born in Dartford, Kent. His father, Basil Fanshawe Jagger, was a teacher and his mother, Eva Ensley Jagger was an active member of the Conservative Party.

Mick was a successful scholar and passed three A-levels at Dartford Grammar School and won a scholarship to London School of Economics, though he did not graduate from the college.

Jagger loved to sing as a child and sang in the church choir. Aged 19, Jagger began to perform as a singer at a London club, The Firehouse. Sharing a love of rhythm and blues music, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards moved into a Chelsea flat together with Brian Jones, where The Rolling Stones was conceived.

Mick Jagger: Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones performed their first gig as a three-piece at the Marquee Club in London. They later added drummer Charlie Watts to the lineup and recruited Andrew Loog Oldham as their manager.

The band relied on cover songs for their early chart success but Jagger and Richards soon found their feet writing their own compositions, and one of their early numbers, ''Satisfaction', was their first international hit. They were portrayed by the music press as a gang of rugged troublemakers: a far cry from the clean-cut image of The Beatles.

In 1967, Jagger was arrested and sentenced to three months imprisonment for possession of four pep pills that he had bought in Italy. The sentence was eventually reduced but this would not be Jagger's last run-in with the police.

Jagger now controls the band's business affairs, along with his friend Rupert Löwenstein. The band continues to perform, decades after their formation and Jagger continues to court controversy. On their 2005 album, A Bigger Bang, the singer openly attacks George W. Bush on the song 'Sweet Neo Con'.

The Rolling Stones were reported to have earned a combined $437 million on their A Bigger Bang tour of 2007 and they were listed in that year's Guiness World Records book for the achievement. Jagger's own fortune is estimated to be worth around £215 million.

Mick Jagger: Film career

Jagger's most famous film appearance is probably in Nicolas Roeg's 1968 film Performance. In 1970 he also appeared as a bushranger in Ned Kelly. In 1969, Jagger improvised the soundtrack to Kenneth Anger's Invocation of my Demon Brother on a Moog synthesizer. In 1978, Jagger was cast in the Rutles film, All You Need Is Cash, a take on The Beatles' 'All You Need Is Love.' Later on, he gained a reputation for playing the heavy, in films such as Freejack (1992), Bent (1997) and the Man From Elysian Fields (2002)

Jagger formed his own film company in 1995, entitled Jagged Films. Its first release was Enigma in 2001, followed by a documentary about Jagger, entitled Being Mick, the release of which coincided with the release of Goddess in the Doorway.

In 2008, Martin Scorsese's Rolling Stones documentary, Shine A Light was screened in Berlin. The film features footage of the band on their A Bigger Bang tour.

Mick Jagger: Personal Life

Mick Jagger has had a number of high-profile relationships. His six-year relationship with singer Marianne Faithfull in the 1960s was widely publicized. In 1971, Jagger married Bianca Pérez-Mora Macías. They were divorced in 1980, when Bianca discovered Jagger's infidelity with Jerry Hall. Hall and Jagger lived together for a long time and had several children together. They eventually married in 1990, in a Hindu beach ceremony. This marriage was annulled in 1999 when Jerry had discovered that Jagger had fathered a child with Luciana Gimenez, during the time that he was married to her. Mick has also been linked to Chrissie Shrimpton, Bebe Buell and Carla Bruni. In total, Mick Jagger has fathered seven children, to four different women. He has three grandchildren.

In 2008, a story emerged that the Hell's Angels had plotted to kill Mick Jagger in 1969, when he refused to use them as a security service at the Altamont Free Concert.

In December 2003, Mick Jagger was awarded with a knighthood for his services to music. Some fans were disappointed that Jagger accepted the honour, arguing that it contradicted his anti-establishment views.

Dear LORDDS:Please accept my report on the mortals that they want to destroy the Sun and Moon with Christian Revelations, in the Christian Bible, to put only one Devil and one Death and Demons into the Hell’s Fire of the Sea of Equity whereby thee others are doing their job because sinless ness is hard to achieve, whereby they do not know that there are sins that are not punishable as prescribed by the Old Testament, thereof. I have had visions about being in the belly of the great fish and the light was red. I have been consumed by lava, thereof. All other sins are punished by damnation and I pray for the She Devil Hells, which include the Christian Hell, wherefore they have been praying their way out but I was brought forward to Darkness to receive my orders and when I answered YES LORDD, I descended into darkness, thereof. I was upon the tree of thorns and I heard Catholic songs sang and Demon voices, wherefore, I died embodied in their thorns, Who am I?, AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! RAA! In the Old Testament the book mentions WE, thereof.Copyright © Debbie Alihusadelia!06/17/1957 or 06/17/1958?dlmccall2000@netzero.com-netladebh@yahoo.comdlmccall2000@yahoo.com

Mike , it would really be nice if you put a concert catalog out ,showing the set list's of that night, evan some dvd's of shows instead of the bootlegger's ripping us off , then you can donate that cash to something -i am sure it would be a hit a full show -i love to be part of that project - i,am sure a man who stilled rocked from 1962-and still going , it would be great .Ronnies can use the cash thease days let Keith chose some unreleased songs , i am sure he enjoy it , and let charlie have a say -from the great 69 tour to 78 -then as you knocked down the steel door in 89 just grat a full live show -with extras t-shirts so on - think about it Sir Mike P.

I think the women who think they are the one that Mick is gonna be with forever need a reality check!I mean really.....come on.....Mick is the Man. If you had the moves...and the voice......and the millions of fans (and Im one if the biggest ones) that Mick has...... why would you settle down with one forever? Not only is the man talented and beautiful, he is far from stupid! So for the women who had their chance with him...be happy that you got so lucky cuz when you met him you wanted a piece of him and you certainly didn't care that the woman before was hurting AND I bet you all have a little more money now then you did before. SO GET OVER IT!Rock On, Mick! You're the best!
