Mick Jagger was born on July 26, 1943, in Dartford, England. As the lead singer of the Rolling Stones, Jagger has become a rock legend known for his gritty, blues-influenced songs and charismatic stage presence. He has delighted a legion of fans for more than four decades.
In 1960, Jagger was accepted to the London School of Economics. He lived at home and commuted into the city to attend classes. Also working on his band, Jagger soon added a new member, guitarist Keith Richards. The two had known each other growing up in Dartford. Exploring London’s emerging blues scene together, Jagger and Richards spent some time at the Ealing Club. There they saw Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated play and were wowed by guitarist Brian Jones, who made guest appearances with the group.
Jagger, Richards and Dick Taylor soon joined up with Brian Jones, who wanted to start his own group. Pianist Ian Stewart was also an early member of what would become the Rolling Stones.
