Summary

Bestselling biographer Philip Norman offers an unparalleled account of the life of a living legend, Mick Jagger. From Home Counties schoolboy, to rebel without a cause, to Sixties sensation and global idol, Norman unravels the myth of the inimitable frontman of The Rolling Stones. Mick Jagger charts his extraordinary journey through scandal-ridden conspiracy, infamous prison spell, hordes of female admirers and a knighthood while stripping away the fame, wealth and idolatry to reveal a story of talent and promise unfulfilled.
Understated yet ostentatious; the ultimate incarnation of 'sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll', yet blessed with taste and intelligence; always moving with the Jagger swagger yet modest enough to be self-deprecating, Mick was a paradoxical energy that reconfigured the musical landscape. This revelatory tour de force pays tribute to a flawed genius who realised the dreams of thousands of rock pretenders: longevity.

Would even listen this one over again...Loved it!

I am a huge Stones fan, though Jagger is not really my fav. However, the story is so well written and so so funny; hearing all about the "Tyranny of cool". The things he did-just to appear cool and keep 'current'. What a laugh. Some stuff not so funny of course, like the way he controlled and treated the women in his life; from his mother, to his various partners and wives. However, I felt the way the book was written was excellent in that it covered his positive side and attributes, also the not so flattering aspects of his personality. So it felt balanced. The story also gave lots of info, unlike some bios that are way too guarded. You really had a sense of what it must have been like to be around this incredibly talented; though narcissistic man.

Jagger Uncovered

I enjoyed the book. Thought the humour added a bit of spice and the reader made the combination of detail and humour delightful.
