Mick Jagger

Mick Jagger Quotes

  The past is a great place and I don't want to erase it or to regret it, but I don't want to be its prisoner either.
It's alright letting yourself go, as long as you can get yourself back.

 I think I`m a pretty good father. I have a nice affinity with children, not just my own. I like taking bunches of kids out for the day. Kids keep you young and they keep you laughing.

Rolling Stones Album Covers 

Mick Talking about the song Under My Thumb
       There was one song that was particularly chosen as an anti-women thing, which was Under My Thumb. And actually Under My Thumb - how does it go... (sings) Under my thumb, there`s a girl who once had ME down. So the whole idea was that she - that I was under HER, she was kicking ME around. So the whole idea is absurd, all I did was turn the tables around. So women took that to be... against femininity where in reality it was... trying to "get back", you know, against being a "repressed male".

    Controversal Stones

      Songs like Brown Sugar caused a stir and femenist uproar. Even civil rights leader Jesse Jackson spoke out in protest of their song Some Girls which had the line, black girls just want 2 get f--ked all night. 

       The album cover of Some Girls was a parody of a newspaper ad for wigs, but the women wearing the wigs were celebrities like Raquel Welch, Lucille Ball, and Farrah Fawcett. They were forced to remove images after a lawsuit was filed.

    Jagger talking on Larry King Show

        "Exile on Main Street" was originally released in 1972- part of the Rolling Stones most prolific and creative period. Jagger talked about the moment of the music coming together and later said that he ranked "Exile" right up there as a special album for him

       About drug use, Jagger stated "the lifestyle starts to choose you." He explained that he learned better not to use drugs on stage, calling it "a control factor".

    Jagger talked about musical artists who came to England and those who inspired him, including: Big Bill Broonzy, Leadbelly, Muddy Waters, Little Richard, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley.

       Mick Jagger is one of the most popular and influential frontmen in the history of rock & roll. Jagger fronted the Rolling Stones for over 20 years before he began a solo career in 1985.  Born Michael Phillip Jagger on July 26, 1943, in 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.
