Did you know Mick Jagger’s full name is Sir Michael Philip Jagger? The swaggering Brit was born July 26, 1943 and serves as the lead singer and one of the founder members of the Rolling Stones.

He’s been rocking the world stage for 56 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 1995 Jagger founded Jagged Films with Victoria Pearman. Its first release was the World War II drama Enigma in 2001. That same year it produced a documentary on Jagger entitled Being Mick. The program, aired on television to coincide with the release of his fourth solo album, Goddess in the Doorway. In 2008 the company began work on The Women, an adaptation of the George Cukor film of the same name. It was directed by Diane English.

Jagger also co-produced the 2014 James Brown biopic, Get On Up. An attempt was made to by Keith Richards and Johnny Depp to persuade Jagger to appear alongside them in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, however, it was unsuccessful.

Jagger has eight children with five women and also has five grandchildren. He became a great-grandfather in 2014 when Jade’s daughter Assisi gave birth to a daughter, Ezra Key.
