Lead singer and co-founder of the Rolling Stone, Jagger is one of the most popular and influential frontmen of Rock and Roll.
In the early days of the Rolling Stones, the band played for free in a basement club opposite Ealing Broadway Station.
Now the Rolling Stones are in the UK Music Hall of Fame
In this incisive and compelling biography, Christopher Sandford explores Jagger’s contradictory persona.
From the wild abandon of his stage performances to the cool and calculating self-management of his life and career.
Mick Jagger: Rebel Knight is based on exclusive interviews with Jagger’s parents, friends and musical partners, as well as his FBI file to which the author has had unprecedented access.
The Stones’ long-time pianist, the late Ian Stewart, gives fresh insight into the history and internal battles of the legendary band.
Here too are definitive accounts of Jagger’s many affairs (including Brigitte Bardot and Tina Turner) and his long-term relationships with Marianne Faithfull, Bianca Perez Morena De Macias and Jerry Hall.
Sandford also includes The Stones’ 2002 US tour, Jagger’s relationships with Venezuelan heiress Vanessa Neumann and model Sophie Dahl, and his controversial knighthood.

|This book has no help from Mick Jagger but goes by interviews from people around him and from the records of his childhood and forward. I really was hoping for something more but for the most part, the book was good. Most of the stuff in it I had heard about except for some of his earlier days before the band got together. Being a Stones fan from the first time I had heard them I cannot be disappointed too much in this book. Overall not bad. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars.
