Mick Jagger Biography
In 1971 The Rolling Stones came back with the album “Sticky Fingers” which would be the most popular album they ever made. From this album there were songs like “Wild Horses” and “Brown Sugar” and were major hits all over the world. While this was happening Bianca Jagger gave birth to Jaggers daughter Jade Jagger.
Throughout the 70s The Rolling Stones made thousands of live performances and achieved endless record sales with hits like “Angie” (1973), “It’s Only Rock and Roll” (1974), “Hot Stuff” (1976) and “Respectable” (1978). In 1974 Ron Wood had replaced Mick Taylor on guitar and Keith Richards and Ron Wood both played lead guitar. In 1980 Jagger divorced Bianca Jagger and went on to record and release “Emotional Rescue” with The Rolling Stones and it was a platinum album.
In 1981 “Tattoo You” was released and the group went on a major world tour, their first in three years, which filled stadiums in the US and arenas in Europe. After the tour ended in 1982 Jagger was starting to like other music. In 1983 The Rolling Stones recorded the album “Undercover” at the Compass Point in Nassau. But recording sessions didn’t go well as during this time Mick and Keith Richard were having arguments about the kind of music the group should be playing. Even though the album was a success it seemed like The Rolling Stones were now going over the edge.
As the lead singer for the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger is one of the most popular and influential frontmen in the history of rock & roll. Jagger fronted the Rolling Stones for over 20 years before he began a solo career in 1985. At the time of the release of his debut solo album, She’s the Boss, it appeared that the Stones may have been approaching the end of their career, but it soon transpired that Jagger’s solo career would run concurrently with that of the band’s. Over the next decade, he released a string of solo albums, none of which achieved the commercial success of the Stones’ less popular releases.
