Mick Jagger – officially Sir Michael Philip Jagger – is 68 today.
Say what you will about the Ageless frontman of the Rolling Stones – and we could say a lot – it is inarguably survivors and has produced an impressive body of work, a part of the brilliant, the career of 50 years.
Has produced a lot of things, now that we think of it, including seven children by four women--two of whom, Bianca De Macias and model Jerry Hall, was married to reality. It also has four grandchildren, God bless him.
Controversy has swirled around Mick Jagger for as long as it was widely public, i.e. almost continuously since the early 1960s, when the Rolling Stones came as a rhythm-and-blues cover band. From the beginning the band seemed to develop and nurture a conscious and protest embodied image Jagger and personified by this picture. To say he has behaved badly is occasionally a little. During the half century, has been almost as well known for its various drug-related arrests, sexual antics onstage and provocative song lyrics as for brilliant songwriting.
OK, Jagger is not the model you want your children to adopt. Not to worry, it is an old geezer. In addition, your parents had the same concern. And see how I was.
On the other hand, he has the title, having been Knighted in 2003 as Sir Michael Jagger by the Prince of Wales for services to music ". The thing ippotika, like most everything else in his life, Jagger was faced with the conflict. Critics said he does not deserve the honor, because they had done nothing of the Charity work or public service. Rolling Stones bandmates Keith Richards and Charlie Watts said it sold until the consolidation in the treason of the band's image.
Then there's the work ethic. In the meantime, the babes, movies, and several titles popular newspapers, Jagger found time to create 92 singles, 29 Studio albums and 10 Live albums with the stones.
And he shows no signs of slowing. At the age when most people want only Rocking to do it in a Chair, Jagger continues to make his way. In May announced the formation of a new supergroup, Super heavy, as well as himself, Dave Stewart (Eurythmics), on the premises of the NRP stone and Damian Marley (younger son of the late Bob).
Super heavy super fast work: an album is scheduled for September release, and the first single, "miracle Worker," already getting play on alternative radio. Maybe Jagger elements working on borrowed time.
