Sir Mick Jagger, rock legend and co-founder of the iconic Rolling Stones, has certainly an eventful few weeks — at the ripe old age of 73, his band just released Blue and Lonesome, their first studio album in over a decade.
RG @therollingstones: The Rolling Stones return to the blues with Blue & Lonesome, their first studio album in over a decade. Released December 2nd, Blue & Lonesome is available to pre-order now at rollingstones.com. Head to the Stones Facebook page to check out the artwork in an interactive 360 format!
And the rockstar even found time to welcome his eighth child into the world, whom he had with ballerina Melanie Hamrick. Fun fact, his newest son is already a great-grand-uncle!
The granddaddy of rock and roll started his career five decades ago, with childhood friend and fellow band mate Keith Richards (they were initially known as the Glimmer Twins). And boy, have they come a long way since then!
Happy anniversary Mick and Keith! On this day in 1961 the Glimmer Twins bumped into each other on platform 2 of Dartford Railway Station, for the first time since primary school. They bonded over the records Mick was carrying, Rockin' At The Hops by Chuck Berry & The Best Of Muddy Waters, becoming firm friends again. The rest is history… Photo by @mariotestino
His career has brought him to many places, in the Stones’ own private jet, no less.
We wonder how it feels like to walk down the streets of New York to discover someone (or in this case ‘something‘) covering your song.
He counts late fellow legend David Bowie as one of his friends, and looks up to the late BB King.
Fitting the stereotype of being the most famous rocker probably in modern history, Mick has a long list of past relationships, but has only been divorced and married once!
One thing we find extremely sweet though is his sentimental side. Just look at how he pays tribute to late girlfriend L’Wren Scott on her birthday. Mick was in a relationship with L’Wren for 13 years, and by the looks of it he loved her a lot.
Did you know that Mick Jagger was knighted Sir Michael Jagger in 2003, for Services to Music?
He’s one of the most controversial rockers out there, but there’s no doubt that Mick is a dad crush in his own right!
