Mick Jagger

July 26, 1943, Dartford, England

He initially met future musical collaborator and Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards while the pair were five years old at primary school, although they would lose contact with each other shortly thereafter. In the intervening years, Jagger discovered a love for music, especially early rock & roll (forming a high school band, Little Boy Blue & the Blue Boys), as well as developing an interest in business, attending the London School of Economics. In his late teens, Jagger happened to bump into Richards once again (while the two were waiting on a train platform), and when Richards noticed Jagger had several blues records under his arm, they became friends again and started up the Rolling Stones shortly thereafter. ~ Allmusic: Mick Jagger ~ retrieved July 24, 2013 © Allmusic

The Rolling Stones

When asked if he had seen either of the two bands at the festival, [John Lydon] replied: “I didn't know Mumford were on. Urgh. To me, that's fake dodgy paddy outfits, you know? It's a little bit on the cornballs side. And the Stones, I saw about five minutes the night before in a hotel in Bristol, and I didn't like what I was seeing. It looked just silly.” However, Lydon said that he was reluctant to mock The Rolling Stones “too much” due to the help that singer Mick Jagger had previously given Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious. “Good luck to them, let them do what they want," he said. “They're not my enemy. Over the years, Mick Jagger's actually done some nice things in our direction, particularly with the early Pistols. When Sid was in a lot of trouble, Mick was there secretly behind the scenes offering us lawyers and things, which we were incapable of getting together. So I won't have him knocked too much.” ~ NME: John Lydon says the Rolling Stones looked silly at Glastonbury ~ July 19, 2013 © NME

Super Heavy

For the first time since the Rolling Stones formed nearly 50 years ago, Mick Jagger is part of a new band: Super Heavy – featuring Dave Stewart, Joss Stone, Damian Marley and Indian film composer A.R. Rahman. The band has quietly been recording together over the past 18 months, with their debut LP planned for sometime around September. “It's different from anything else I've ever been involved in,” Jagger tells Rolling Stone. “The music is very wide-ranging – from reggae to ballads to Indian songs in Urdu.” ~ Rolling Stone: Mick Jagger forms supergroup ~ May 20, 2011 © Rolling Stone
