Mick Jaggerby Billy J. Altman, Valeria Manferto De Fabianis (Editor)
Fifty years after Mick Jagger burst on the scene, he's still the standard against which all rock stars are judged. His distinctive voice and preening, prancing antics onstage have yet to be equaled, much less surpassed; his songs with band mate Keith Richards have become classics; and his reputation as an international sex symbol won't fade away. This stunning photographic volume looks at his life and career, from London suburbs to elder statesman at 70 years oldwith all his attitude gloriously intact.
