Mick Jagger was born Michael Philip Jagger 26 July 1943 in Dartford, Kent, England. His parents are Eva and Joe Jagger and he has one brother. In high school, Mick Jagger founded a band called Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys. He attended the London School of Economics on a scholarship grant from the government.

Mick Jagger is one of the most popular rock stars of all time. He found fortune and fame as the lead singer of The Rolling Stones and helped make "The Stones" one of the most popular rock bands of all time. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards started The Rolling Stones in 1962 with a new bluesy rock sound and a hard-hitting style that soon resulted in a string of hit songs, concert tours and media frenzy.

Legend has it that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who once went to the same school when they were five years old, met again at a train station as teenagers. Apparently, Mick Jagger was carrying some blues records. Keith Richards was also crazy about the blues and soon they soon joined Brian Jones in forming The Rolling Stones. Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts were also part of the band.

The band's name came from the 1950 Muddy Waters song "Rollin' Stone." The Rolling Stone's first big hit was Satisfaction, which stayed on the US music charts for six weeks in a row. Big hits such as "Paint it Black," "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "Time is on My Side," and "Get Off of My Cloud" soon followed. "Honky Tonk Woman," "You Can't Always Get Want You Want," "Gimme Shelter" and "Sympathy for the Devil" were other classic hits for the Stones.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Keith Richards wanted to keep the bluesy rock sound the band had always had, but Mick Jagger wanted to add more dance sounds. Mick Jagger's first solo album, 1985's She's the Boss, had a pop sound that was more contemporary than the music he had done with The Rolling Stones. The album was not as popular as his Stones work, but the album did have a few songs on it that made the Top 40. Mick Jagger joined David Bowie in 1985 for the Live Aid fundraiser and they donated all the profits they made for recording "Dancing in the Street" by Martha and the Vandellas.

Mick Jagger's second solo album, Primitive Cool, came out in 1987 and only had one song in the Top 40. Mick Jagger rejoined The Rolling Stones in 1989 for the Steel Wheels album and tour. In 1993, Mick Jagger's third solo album, Wandering Spirit, went gold.

Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones had the Voodoo Lounge album and tour in 1994. Three years later, in 1997, The Stones were together again for the Bridges to Babylon tour. Mick Jagger released his fourth solo album, Goddess in the Doorway, in 2001. Goddess in the Doorway features guest artists such as Bono, Missy Elliot, Rob Thomas and Lenny Kravitz.
