Abstract:

He is, without question, one of the dominant cultural figures of our time. Swaggering, strutting, sometimes sinister, always fascinating, Mick Jagger boasts a career spanning four decades - from the turbulent sixties and sybaritic seventies through the booming eighties to the cautious nineties. His is the story of a generation. With Elvis Presley and John Lennon gone, he is arguably the last of the rock titans. Yet Jagger, jealously guarding the secrets of his life, has always managed to remain the most enigmatic of icons. As Jagger celebrates his fiftieth birthday in 1993, best-selling author Christopher Andersen strips the mask from Jumpin' Jack Flash in a no-holds-barred biography as shocking and uncompromising as Jagger himself. The riveting portrait that emerges is based on years of research and countless interviews with friends, teachers, fellow musicians, family members, neighbors, industry insiders, and lovers. Among the many startling insights and revelations in Jagger Unauthorized:. Jagger's bisexual history - and the full story of his bizarre relationships with David Bowie, Rudolf Nureyev, Andy Warhol, and one of today's biggest male rock superstars;. Never-before-revealed details of his turbulent marriages to Bianca Jagger and Jerry Hall, his affairs with Marianne Faithfull, Carly Simon, and Linda Ronstadt, and his sexual escapades with numberless fans - including Madonna;. The years awash in cocaine, hashish, LSD, and speed - the headline-making drug trials, and how long this harrowing substance abuse really went on;. A rare behind-the-scenes glimpse of Jagger's business dealings, and why he is rightly considered a financial genius;. And of course, all the scandal, drama, and genius that went into making the Rolling Stones the "world's greatest rock and roll band": the backstage maneuverings to oust Stones cofounder Brian Jones and Jones's mysterious early death, Jagger's strangely erotic love-hate affair with Keith Richards that continues today, the bloodbath at Altamont, the countless hits and record-smashing tours, the Steel Wheels triumph, and much more. Jagger Unauthorized is, like its subject, explosive and compelling - the definitive biography of a man whose very name defines an era.
