Mick Jagger is one of the most influential artists in the history of rock and roll. This famous idol of rock and roll is not only a musician but also a songwriter, film producer, and actor. Known for his showmanship, Jagger is one of the greatest names in the world of music. He is also a founding member of the popular band ‘The Rolling Stones.’ Mick Jagger carved a niche for himself in the music industry and went on to inspire generations of rock and roll enthusiasts. Born into a typical middle-class family, he shared his passion for music with Keith Richards very early in his life. His unique vocal style and convulsive, often suggestive movements on stage, earned his band the reputation of being music industry’s scallywag, in contrast to the more orthodox band ‘The Beatles.’ During his heydays, he released a series of hits, including ‘Respectable’ and ‘Hot Stuff.’ Apart from his affiliation with the ‘Rolling Stones,’ he also had a stunning solo career, delivering many hit albums, such as ‘She’s the Boss,’ ‘Primitive Cool,’ ‘Wandering Spirit,’ and ‘Goddess in the Doorway.’ He was also a popular counterculture symbol, gaining much attention for his drug usage and on-stage notoriety.
