Rock musician, songwriter, actor, producer. Born Michael Philip Jagger, on July 26, 1943, in Dartford, Kent, England. The son of a physical education teacher and housewife, Jagger grew up in a conventional middle-class family. His early interests were eclectic, ranging from sports to history to music. In 1962, Jagger enrolled at the London School of Economics, where he studied business and played in a blues band called Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys. Around the same time, Jagger was reacquainted with childhood friend and fellow aspiring musician Keith Richards. Influenced by the new musical sound emerging in Britain, Jagger and Richards left school to form their own rock band — The Rolling Stones (derived from the title of the 1950 Muddy Waters hit). The addition of guitarist Brian Jones, drummer Charlie Watts, and bassist Bill Wyman completed the group. Emulating the sound of legendary bluesmen like Muddy Waters and Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones started singing in London’s local bars and jazz clubs. In July of 1962, they made their first public appearance at the Marquee Club, where they attracted the attention of producer Andrew Oldham. With Oldham’s endorsement, the Stones signed with Decca Records and released their first single, a version of Chuck Berry’s “Come On,” in 1963. They followed the song’s moderate success with more impressive cuts, including the John Lennon/Paul McCartney composition “I Wanna Be Your Man” (1963) and the Buddy Holly cover “Not Fade Away” (1964). With the release of their first album, England’s Newest Hitmakers – The Rolling Stones (1964), the band picked up momentum. They gave charismatic performances in larger concert venues and achieved frenzied adoration from fans. With roaring vocals and an equally unrestrained performance style, Jagger soon became as famous for his theatrical stage presence as for his hard-edged singing. His androgynous persona (accentuated by an effeminate wardrobe of tights and scarves) and the group's uninhibited lifestyles, cultivated a rebellious image that appealed to a generation of disillusioned teenagers during the 1960s. In June of 1964, the Stones recorded their debut self-composed single, “Tell Me (You're Coming Back),” which became their first American Top 40 hit. The following year, they released their breakthrough single, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” which secured a No. 1 spot on the U.S. charts for four consecutive weeks.
