Now, he is Sir Mick Jagger, one of the most famous stars of all times. However, the founder of The Rolling Stones was an ordinary teenager, who needed to make a living as everybody else. He was born in Dartford, Kent, UK. His father was a teacher and his mother a hairdresser. Today, Yareah quote of the day is by Mick Jagger. Don’t be surprised by his words!
“I came into music just because I wanted the bread. It’s true. I looked around and this seemed like the only way I was going to get the kind of bread I wanted.” Mick Jagger.
When Mick Jagger was 4, he already knew Keith Richards but they lost touch in secondary school. But one day in 1960, they fortuitously met on the Dartford train line and they realized that they had a common interest in music. Between 1960-1962, The Rolling Stones formed, and the success comes nearly immediately.
It comprised of Mick on lead vocal and harmonica, Keith Richards on guitar, Bill Wyman on bass, Charlie Watts on drums and Brian Jones on guitar.
In 1964 they released their first album “The Rolling Stones” and in 1971 The Rolling Stones came back with the album “Sticky Fingers.” Now, everything is legend! Anyway, in May 1984 Mick recorded “State of Shock” with The Jacksons which led Mick wanting to try out a solo career. Thus, during 1986 Mick worked on his second solo album “Primitive Cool” which he hoped would be a success but this was not to be. Fortunately, Mick accepted the fact that the only way to carry on with success was to get back with The Rolling Stones.
In 1989, he and Keith Richards wrote songs for what was to be the “Steel Wheels” album. From then, The Rolling Stones are immortal!
