Transcript

Born in England, in Dartford, Kent, on July 26, 1943, Michael Philip Jagger was still a schoolboy when he made his first tv appearances. His father, an expert and lecturer on physical fitness and a leading authority on basketball, had been hired as a consultant on a BBC TV sports series, and he enlisted the aid of his eldest son to demonstrate the finer points of rock-climbing and canoeing. Mick went on to study at the London School of Economics but dropped out to pursue a music career with his band, The Rolling Stones. By the late 1960s, The Rolling Stones were one of the biggest -and baddest- bands in the world, thanks to a string of hit records and a seemingly limitless ability to attract scandal, outrage and tragedy. In 1969, just weeks after he had been ousted from the group, guitarist Brian Jones drowned at his sussex home. A concern at California's Altamont Raceway was married by violence, resulting in four deaths. When The Beatles disbanded, The Rolling Stones were left at rock's undisputed kings. Despite minor rifts and the occasional personal change, they continue to reign... and still lay calm to the title of the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band. Away from the group, Mick pursued other interests, including a sporadic solo career and collaborations with everyone from David Bowie to The Jackson's. His movie career began with 1968's "Performance" and the lead role in "Ned Kelly" in 1970. He returned to the screen with 1992's "Free Jack" and has continued to act occasionally. Although he is one of rock's most notorious outlaws, he also has his own film production company, is heavily involved in the business side of The Rolling Stones and was knighted by Britain's Prince Charles in 2003. Inducted into the Rock & Roll hall of fame in 1989, The Rolling Stones continue to be one of the biggest concert draws in history. The latest tour was interrupted when frontman Jagger had to undergo replacement heart valve surgery. The father of eight, grandfather of five and great-grandfather- who recently turned 76-made a speedy recovery and the "No Filter" tour is currently packing stadiums across North America.
