Overview

Leader of the most illustrious rock band in history, and father of 7 children (by 4 different women), Mick Jagger, at the age of 60, shows no signs of slowing down. Here, Laura Jackson traces his path to fame and notoriety, from his school days to his most recent tour with the Stones. His persona is famously that of the blasé bon viveur—the still center of his own chaotic world. But Laura Jackson has spoken to many of Jagger’s friends and acquaintances to reveal the paradoxes behind his seamless façade, including his lust for recognition, his jealousies and insecurities, and his dread of assassination. The Rolling Stones have become the measure against which all bands, even to this day, are judged. It is impossible to imagine current culture without the unique influence of Mick Jagger.
