"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
--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
--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.
