Mick Jagger is one of the most influential rock and roll singers on the planet. Known for his hip-shaking moves, pouty lips, oozing sexuality, and controversial antics, the Rolling Stones singer is the walking definition of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Though he portrays a very jaded, drugged-out exterior, underneath his aloof, uncaring attitude is an artist obsessed with his craft. At least in the eyes of other esteemed artists, like Lenny Kravitz, who called Jagger a very “disciplined artist.”
Mick Jagger Had Humble English Beginnings
Mick Jagger (full name Michael Philip Jagger) was born in Dartford, England in 1943. His career in music began in the least rock & roll way possible – being a member of the church choir. His father was a teacher, and his mother was active in in England’s Conservative Party even though she was an Australian immigrant.
Musical talent runs in Jagger’s family, and though his parents didn’t really dabble too much in the Arts, his brother Chris is a singer. Just like his brother, Chris is still performing live and releasing new albums. He has a number of 2017 dates in the London area.
