Sir Michael Philip “Mick” Jagger (born 26 July 1943) is an English singer, songwriter and actor, best known as the lead singer and a co-founder of the Rolling Stones.

Jagger’s career has spanned over 50 years, and he has been described as “one of the most popular and influential frontmen in the history of Rock & Roll”. Jagger’s distinctive voice and performance, along with Keith Richards’ guitar style, have been the trademark of the Rolling Stones throughout the career of the band. Jagger gained press notoriety for his admitted drug use and romantic involvements, and was often portrayed as a countercultural figure.

In the late 1960s, Jagger began acting in films (starting with Performance and Ned Kelly), to mixed reception. In 1985, he released his first solo album, She’s the Boss. In early 2009, Jagger joined the electric supergroup SuperHeavy. In 1989 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2004 into the UK Music Hall of Fame with the Rolling Stones. In 2003, he was knighted for his services to popular music.

1943–1961: Early years

Michael Philip Jagger was born into a middle-class family in Dartford, Kent. His father, Basil Fanshawe “Joe” Jagger (13 April 1913 – 11 November 2006), and grandfather, David Ernest Jagger, were both teachers. His mother, Eva Ensley Mary (née Scutts; 6 April 1913 – 18 May 2000), born in New South Wales, Australia, of English descent, was a hairdresser and an active member of the Conservative Party. Jagger’s younger brother, Chris (born 19 December 1947), is also a musician. The two have performed together.

Although brought up to follow his father’s career path, Jagger “was always a singer” as he stated in According to the Rolling Stones. “I always sang as a child. I was one of those kids who just liked to sing. Some kids sing in choirs; others like to show off in front of the mirror. I was in the church choir and I also loved listening to singers on the radio–the BBC or Radio Luxembourg–or watching them on TV and in the movies.”

In September 1950, Keith Richards and Jagger were classmates at Wentworth Primary School, Dartford, Kent. In 1954, Jagger passed the eleven-plus and went to Dartford Grammar School, which now has the Mick Jagger Centre installed within the school’s site, named for its most famous alumnus. Jagger and Richards lost contact with each other when they went to different schools, but after a chance encounter at Dartford Station in July 1960, resumed their friendship and discovered their shared love of rhythm and blues, which for Jagger had begun with Little Richard.

Jagger left school in 1961 after obtaining seven O-levels and three A-levels. Jagger and Richards moved into a flat in Edith Grove in Chelsea, London with a guitarist they had encountered named Brian Jones. While Richards and Jones planned to start their own rhythm and blues group, Jagger continued to study business as an undergraduate student at the London School of Economics, and had seriously considered becoming either a journalist or a politician, comparing the latter to a pop star.

The Rolling Stones 1976/1978

From 1964-1977 The Rolling Stones made three love albums, but Love You Live is something special. It’s a double LP with only the 1970’s on it, and no Satisfaction on it at all, which is rare.

The Rolling Stones has enough songs of the 1970’s to do alive album, but to make it a double LP, can only make their fans satisfied.

Some Girls LP, is what got me tooked on The Rolling Stones. It’s stupid now, but their was a rumor that The Rolling Stones were homosexual, just because they had lipstick and wig edit it in their photos on their LP, but it was false, of course. The cover of LP and the CD album is different, because when you took out the vinyl, the holes in the cardboard cover of the LP, make the paper folder look different, which the CD cover can’t do.

With Some Girls, I had to know everything about The Rolling Stones, but I was still focus on The Beatles, to give it my all. It took two years for me to focus on The Rolling Stones, but when I did, I never let anyone to get in between The Rolling Stones and myself, that is except for The Beatles, but that goes without saying !!!

The Rolling Stones 1974/1976

As new performers make a hit song and then fade away, The Rolling Stones were making many hits and their followers were getting stronger.

With the Metamorphons album, The Rolling Stones have two hit songs, but the whole album, which they played in concerts for the rest of their career, and their fans sort after and is still a fan favorite.

With the Made In The Shade, it was even better for The Rolling Stones, Brown Surgar, It’s Only Rock’N’Roll and Angie blew the up and coming performers away into One Hit Wonders.

The Rolling Stones were famous and started, in the 1960’s, but they were bigger than life, with more hit songs, more than the new comers.

The trouble, with the 1970’s is, the performers had a hit song, which are still played on Oldies radio and greatest hits album, is that they try to make their songs, just like their hit song, or try to please their fans, but The Rolling Stones, wrote and played songs that they like, which is why their so great.

From Satisfacion to Brown Sugar, their songs are getting better and better.

I’m always waiting for a new Rolling Stones album, (I’m sure you are as well), and just like I wait for another of my posts, bringing uploaded, I’m looking forward to seeing it, so let me upload this post, so I can continue with the next one, so read my post, and learn what I’ve learned !!!

The Rolling Stones 1972/1974

Mick Jagger was an actor in the film The Performers, which has a cult following, and Bill Williams married his 17 years old girlfriend (which they both were dating when she was 14), but other than that, not much were mentioned, about the future of The Rolling Stones.

There were rumors that The Rolling Stones, broke up and went there own ways, or that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards can’t work together. All rumors were false, The Rolling Stones did not break up and Mick Jagger and Keith Richards wrote some songs, but won’t be until 1973 with Goathead Soup and 1974 It’s Only Rock’N’Roll, which is here, on my post, and I hope you will enjoy !!!

The Rolling Stones 1970/1972

The In the 1970’s, it was a time for new taste, new styles and most of all, new music. As of 1970 a new generation was into new music, and the 1960’s generation was protesting, but wasn’t buying any records, the record companies were gearing to the the new generation, but continue with the 1960’s

performers. The Rolling Stones had no trouble with the 1970’s  audience. As The One Hit Wonders were dropping off the charts, Motown and British Rock was going strong. The Rolling Stones released Sticky Fingers in 1971, which has a live of its own, even today it’s one of The Rolling Stones greatest albums, but they also released two double LP’s of their greatest hits, from the 1960’s in 1972 (a year before The Beatles two double Red and Blue LP’s were released), called Hot Rocks 1964-1971 and More Hot Rocks (Big Hits & Fazed Cookies)

 

Exile On Main ST. (1972), didn’t have any hit songs, for none was released, but it’s a favorite to Stones fans.

Between 1970 to 1972, The Rolling Stones, mainly toured around the world playing their songs from the 1960’s, so their was much time to writing and recording new music.

Whoever was at The Rolling Stones concert at that time, had the ride of their lives and I wished I could have been there !!!

The Carpenters 2008/2010

There’s nothing to report, so The Carpenters 1946/2010 has ended !!!

The Carpenters 2004/2008

Richard, Mary, and their four daughters and one son live in Thousand Oaks, California, where the couple are supporters of the arts.In 2004, Carpenter and his wife pledged a $3 million gift to the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza Foundation in memory of Karen Carpenter. More recently, Richard has actively supported the Carpenter Performing Arts Center at his alma mater, California State University, Long Beach. He continues to make concert appearances, including fund raising efforts for the Carpenter Center.
In 2007 and 2009, the current owners of the former Carpenter family home on Newville Avenue in Downey, obtained permits from the city to tear down the existing buildings on the site to make room for newer and larger structures, in spite of ongoing protests from fans. In February 2008, a group of fans got their protest campaign covered in the Los Angeles Times. At that time an adjacent house that had once served as the band’s headquarters and recording studio had already been demolished and the main house was on the verge of being demolished as well. The original house was immortalized on the Now & Then album cover and was the place where Karen Carpenter died: in the words of Carpenters’ fan Jon Konjoyan, “this was our version of Graceland.”

The Carpenters 2002/2004

This will be the last fuller years of The Carpenters !!!
