Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Author Phillip Norman, whose previous bestseller, John Lennon: The Life, was praised as a “haunting, mammoth, terrific piece of work” (New York Times Book Review) and whose classic Shout! is widely considered to be the definitive biography of the Beatles, now turns his attention to the iconic front man of the Rolling Stones, “the greatest rock n roll band in the world.” Normans Mick Jagger is an extraordinarily detailed and vibrantly written in-depth account of the life and half-century-long career of one of the most fascinating and complex superstars of rock music—the most comprehensive biography to date of the famously enigmatic musician. Keith Richards had his say in Life. Now its time to get to know intimately the other half of the duo responsible for such enduring hits as “Paint It Black,” “Sympathy for the Devil,” “Gimme Shelter,” and “(I Cant Get No) Satisfaction.” Mick Jagger is a must read for Stones fans, and everyone who cant get enough of the serious memoirs and biographies of popular musicians, like Patti Smiths Just Kids, Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? by Steven Tyler, and the Warren Zevon story, Ill Sleep When Im Dead.

Synopsis:

Throughout five decades of fronting the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger has been seen as the ultimate arrogant superstar, whose sexual appetite rivals Casanova's and whose supposed reckless drug use touched off the most famous scandal in rock history.

Now Philip Norman reveals a Jagger far more complex than the cold archseducer of myth: here at last is the real story of how a shy economics student became a modern Antichrist…of the beautiful women from Chrissie Shrimpton to Jerry Hall, whom he has bedded but not always dominated . . . of the enduring but ever-fraught partnership with his "Glimmer Twin," Keith Richards. Mick Jagger, above all, explores the keen and calculating intelligence that has kept the Stones on their plinth as "the world's greatest rock'n'roll band" for half a century.
