Mick Jagger Caricature, age 21, from the “People Are Talking About” section, Vogue Magazine, July 1964, on the eve of the Rolling Stones' first U.S. tour.
This was the first portrait of Mick Jagger ever published in the U.S.A. Though they were on the charts, The Rolling Stones had not yet made a name for themselves in England, and were even less known in New York.
Michael Philip Jagger is an English singer-songwriter, musician, composer and actor who gained fame as the lead singer and one of the founding members of the Rolling Stones. Jagger's career has spanned over five decades, and he has been described as “one of the most popular and influential frontmen in the history of rock & roll”.
In September 1950, Keith Richards and Jagger were classmates at Wentworth Primary School, Dartford. Years later in 1960, after a chance encounter at the Dartford railway station in July 1960, they resumed their friendship and discovered their shared love of rhythm and blues, which for Jagger had begun with Little Richard. In 1961, with Richards, he moved into a flat in Edith Grove, Chelsea, London, with guitarist Brian Jones.
Brian Jones formed the group “Blues Incorporated”; Jagger and Richards began to practice with the group, which led to the early formation of the Rolling Stones. Jagger and Richards soon began to write their own songs. This core songwriting partnership took some time to develop, one of their early compositions, “As Tears Go By”, was a song written for Marianne Faithfull.
Charlie Watts joined the Stones in late 1962 as their drummer, Bill Wyman joined as bass player in early 1963 and the rest is history.
The Stones have enjoyed an endless supply of hits; here are some from just the 1960's: “(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction”, “Paint It Black”, “Under My Thumb”, “Time Is On My Side”, “Ruby Tuesday”, “Dead Flowers”, “She's A Rainbow”, “19th Nervous Breakdown”, “Street Fightin' Man”, “Let's Spend The Night Together” and “Get Off Of My Cloud” to name a few.
In 1989, Jagger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2004 into the UK Music Hall of Fame with the Rolling Stones. In 2003, he was knighted for his services to popular music.
