Publisher Comments:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Christopher Andersen tears the mask from rock’s most complex and enigmatic icon in a no-holds-barred biography as enticing as Jagger himself.

Mick Jagger is a force of nature, a complete original—and undeniably one of the dominant cultural figures of our time. Swaggering, strutting, and spellbinding, he grabbed us by our collective throat a half-century ago. For decades, Mick has jealously guarded his many shocking secrets—until now. Based on interviews with friends, family members, and industry insiders—as well as wives and legions of lovers—Mick sheds new light on a man whose very name defines an era.

Some of the candid revelations included: Jagger’s jaw-dropping sexual exploits with more than 4,000 women (including Madonna, Angelina Jolie, Carly Simon, Linda Ronstadt, Uma Thurman, and France’s First Lady Carla Bruni)—as well as encounters with several of rock’s biggest male stars; what he really thinks of today’s superstars—like Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, BeyoncÉ, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, and Justin Bieber; the flabbergasting truth about the extent of Jagger’s substance abuse, and how long it really went on; a rare glimpse into the killer instinct that has enabled him to amass a personal fortune in excess of $400 million; and all the scandal, mayhem, excess, madness, and genius that went into making the Rolling Stones the world’s greatest rock-and-roll band.

Mick is the definitive biography of a living legend who has kept us thrilled, confounded, and astounded for decades.

Synopsis:

Is he Jumpin Jack Flash? A Street Fighting Man? A Man of Wealth and Taste? All this, it turns out, and far more. By any definition, Mick Jagger is a force of nature, a complete original—and undeniably one of the dominant cultural figures of our time. Swaggering, strutting, sometimes elusive, always spellbinding, he grabbed us by our collective throat a half-century ago and—unlike so many of his gifted peers—never let go. For decades, Mick has jealously guarded his many shocking secrets—until now. As the Rolling Stones mark their 50th anniversary, #1 New York Times bestselling author Christopher Andersen tears the mask from rocks most complex and enigmatic icon in a no-holds-barred biography as impossible to ignore as Jagger himself.
