Description

Few Rock and Roll stars have been as successful and controversial, as adored and as vilified, as influential and as notorious as Michael Philip MICK JAGGER. Jagger described himself as an anarchist, which seems to hit the nail pretty much on the head in the light of his confrontations with the law, the overtly sexual stage performances, the well-publicised usage of substances, the provocative lyrics, the procession of associations with the most desirable of women and his seven children with four of them. But Mick Jagger, the singer, is flawless; the greatest blues singer that Britain has ever produced. His own earliest admitted influence was Little Richard and he always remained loyal to his blues roots. In 2012, Jagger, playing The White House with two of his heroes, BB King and Buddy Guy, persuaded Barack Obama to join in on the vocal chorus of Sweet Home Chicago, in homage to The President’s hometown. That must have been a very nice moment.
