Who is Mick Jagger?

Mick Jagger, or Sir Michael Phillip Jagger, as he is formally known, was born and grew up in Dartford, Kent.

He is a musician, singer, songwriter, author, and is the frontman and a founding member of the legendary rock band The Rolling Stones.

The Stones are still selling out venues all over the globe and have enjoyed hits such as ‘Paint it Black’ along with ‘Wild Horses’ and ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.

Not only is Jagger famous for fronting one of the most iconic bands in the history of music, but he is also renowned for his rock star lifestyle, his 8 children, and his numerous relationships over the decades.

Mick nearly appeared in ‘A Clockwork Orange’

Legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick has directed some incredible films in the past.

One of his most iconic, and also, most controversial, was ‘A Clockwork Orange.’

The 1971 dystopian film was previously banned as it featured very controversial topics, heavy violence, and other adult themes.

The film centers on Alex, a good-looking, charming, anti-social, violent, and disturbed gang leader who commits hideous crimes, is captured, and is subject to all manner of extreme rehabilitation techniques.

The movie features Malcolm McDowell as Alex, though that nearly wasn’t the case.

After seeing Mick Jagger on a TV show, Kubrick approached Jagger and offered him the role of Alex.

Mick politely declined, as he didn’t wish to portray such a violent character on screen.

Mick is a Ladies’ Man

Now, it’s no secret that rock stars enjoy a party lifestyle, and tend to get a lot of attention from the ladies, yet Mick Jagger is said to have been on an entirely other level.

Mick has been married 3 times and has 8 children.

Before settling down, however, he was somewhat of a bad boy and really lived up to the party lifestyle one might expect to find with a rock star.

While we cannot confirm this, many media outlets report that Mick has previously been intimate with as many as 4,000 women.

We know he had a reputation for being a ladies’ man, but come on, that’s ridiculous, even for a rock star!

Music is in the Jagger blood

Mick has been a musician for close to his entire life.

He has enjoyed a career that has spanned 7 decades, and despite being in his 80s, he still tours and still performs now.

After receiving his first guitar when he was just 14 years of age, it’s easy to see why he has such a passion for music. It turns out, however, that Mick isn’t the only Jagger with a taste for music.

Mick’s younger brother, Chris, was also a musician. After giving up a career as a pro athlete, Chris performed one of the very first rock operas as part of the band Maggots Brannagan.

Obviously, Chris didn’t enjoy the same success as his older brother, but even so, he did okay in the music biz.

Mick wanted to be a journalist

It’s hard to believe that such a bad-boy rock star like Mick Jagger would once want to lead a normal life and have somewhat of a respectable job, yet that’s exactly what he wanted.

When he was younger, Mick studied at the London School of Economics, where he studied Latin, French, Art History, and English.

His goal was to become a journalist. He was even a member of the editorial board for a student newspaper entitled ‘The Beaver’ (yes, we giggled too).

Mick slowly started to fall more in love with music and the rock star lifestyle, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Mick is a keen ballet fan

Ballet and rock music don’t generally go together, but just you try telling that to Mick Jagger.

Mick is reportedly a huge fan of ballet, and not only does he attend ballet classes, but he also regularly watches ballet shows.

As if that wasn’t enough, he also recently announced he was engaged to ballet dancer Melanie Hamrick, who is nearly 45 years his junior.

Mick, who stands at 5ft 10 inches in height, is a very slim and svelte individual. He has not an ounce of fat on him and works hard to keep fit and trim. As a result, Mick Jagger weighs an average of just 161 pounds.

Considering the fact that, when he performs, Mick is very active, this is not a surprise. In fact, experts estimate that, per show, Mick walks as much as 12 miles per night on stage. Wow, no wonder he’s so trim.
