Abstract:

One of rock 'n' roll's most charismatic, controversial, and consistently surprising superstars, Mick Jagger has lived in the glare of international fame and fortune. Yet for all his calculated outrage, jet-set dalliances, and high-profile love affairs, Jagger remains an enigmatic legend, jealous of his privacy, his past, and real personal obsessions. In this in-depth biography, Davin Seay ventures beyond the myth, revealing through the words of friends, enemies, and intimates the real Mick Jagger. Mick Jagger: The Story Behind the Rolling Stone traces Jagger's rise from inauspicious middle-class roots to mega rock star. It chronicles his headline-grabbing affairs with sixties supermodel Chrissie Shrimpton and ex-convent candidate Marianne Faithful. The book unveils the stories behind his star-crossed marriage with Nicaraguan noblewoman Bianca Rose Macias and his longtime, live-in arrangement with Texas beauty Jerry Hall. The book lays bare all the flings and follies that together comprise a love life worthy of a modern Casanova. Mick Jagger provides an intimate look at the inner workings of the Rolling Stones, called the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world. Jagger's lifelong friendship and uneasy creative alliances with Keith Richards and the doomed Brian Jones help explain Jagger's extraordinary ability to survive in the high-stakes game of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. Described, too, are the furious feuds that tore at the group and the common bonds that held them together. It's all here, from the Rolling Stones' early triumphs to the disastrous aftermath of Altamont, as well as the group's record-breaking world tours and their scandalous backstage antics. Mick Jagger: The Story Behind the Rolling Stone also chronicles the star's on-again, off-again film career, his remarkable knack for making and managing money, his upper-crust pretensions, and his down-and-dirty penchants. The book is a compelling portrait not only of one of music's most famous stars, but also of a whole rock 'n' roll culture in the making.
