The Mick, Jagger, Mick Jagger, Michael Jagger Biography
Michael Philip Jagger, known to everyone as Mick Jagger, was born in Kent, England in July of 1943. It was assumed that he would follow in his father’s footsteps and become a teacher, but it quickly became clear that all Jagger wanted to do was play music and sing. Jagger sang in the church choir, for family members, and anyone who would listen. In 1961, Jagger and schoolmate Keith Richards rented an apartment together and started their own blues band. The band originally played for free, but they quickly became popular and were playing under the name of The Rolling Stones by July of 1962.
Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones is now one of the biggest, and richest, rock star sensations the world has ever known. With an unbelievable 200 million records sold (with The Rolling Stones), knighted by the Queen of England, and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame, Jagger continues to perform and record songs, even at the age of 72. Even without the Rolling Stones, Jagger has had a successful career on his own with 4 solo albums and more than 20 hit singles.
Jagger has also performed in many movies, including Sympathy for the Devil, Bent, FreeJack, and Shine a Light. He declined to take a roll in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, even though his friend Keith Richards accepted a small part in the movie.
Jagger is almost as famous for his love life as his music. He has 7 children from 4 women, and at the age of 72, is expecting his 8th child with 29 year old ballerina Melanie Hamrick. His longtime relationship with model Jerry Hall ended in 1999 when Hall discovered that Jagger had been unfaithful numerous times. Jagger also had a long term relationship with clothing designer L’Wren Scott, who committed suicide in 2014 and left her $9 million estate to Jagger. This aging rocker became a great grandfather in 2014 when his granddaughter Assisi gave birth to a daughter.
Jagger has an astounding net worth of $360 million, and it only grows bigger each year. With concert dates scheduled through the end of the year, it appears that this mega super star will only get richer as time goes on.
