"He's a smart little mother******, I'll give him that." --KEITH RICHARDS on MICK JAGGER
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, journalist and #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 impossible to ignore as Jagger himself.
Based on interviews with friends, family members, fellow music legends, and industry insiders--as well as wives and legions of lovers--MICK sheds new light on a man whose very name defines an era and candidly reveals:
--New details about Jagger's jaw-dropping sexual exploits with more than four thousand women (including Madonna, Angelina Jolie, Carly Simon, Linda Ronstadt, Uma Thurman, and France's First Lady Carla Bruni)--as well as his encounters with several of rock's biggest male stars. Also, the day Mick's wife Jerry Hall and Keith Richards pleaded with Jagger to seek treatment for sex addiction.
--The backstage drama surrounding Mick's knighthood, and Jagger's little-known ties to Britain's Royal Family, including Prince William and Kate Middleton.
--What he really thinks of today's superstars--including Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, and Justin Bieber.
--Never-before-revealed, behind-the-scenes accounts of his often turbulent relationships--from his band-mates, ravenous groupies, and rabid fans to such intimates as Andy Warhol, John Lennon, Jackie Onassis, Bill Clinton, and others.
--Cocaine, LSD, hashish, and speed--the flabbergasting truth about the extent of Jagger's substance abuse, and how long it really went on.
--A rare glimpse into Mick's business dealings and the killer instinct that has enabled him to amass a personal fortune well in excess of $400 million.
--The stormy "marriage" between Mick and Keith that nearly ran aground over Keith's searing comments--and all the scandal, mayhem, excess, madness, and genius that went into making the Rolling Stones "the world's greatest rock-and-roll band."
Like its subject, this book is explosive and riveting--the definitive biography of a living legend who has kept us thrilled, confounded, and astounded.
