Revue de presse

“The second, livelier and all-around better of two major unauthorized Jagger biographies . . . . Norman succeeds at least partly in getting to the middle-class, suburban man behind the myth; he offers a sort of retort to Keith Richards’ Life . . . . An enjoyable, entertaining biography.”
Kirkus Reviews

“An in-depth look at a man who personifies the best of rock music, its look, its feel and its groove and its uglier side, its narcissism, greed and misogyny. . . . Norman gives us more than just a passing recitation of Jagger’s life. It’s a more detailed and more elegantly written book than this past summer’s Jagger bio.”
—Winnipeg Free Press

Présentation de l'éditeur

A miracle of still-plentiful hair, raw sex-appeal, and strutting talent . The frontman of one of the most influential and controversial groups of all time. A musical genius with a career spanning over four decades. Mick Jagger is a testament at once to British glamour and sensual decline, the ultimate architect and demi-god of rock.

Bestselling biographer Philip Norman offers an unparalleled account of the life of a living legend, Mick Jagger. From Home Counties schoolboy, to rebel without a cause to Sixties rock sensation and global idol, Norman unravels with astonishing intimacy the myth of the inimitable frontman of The Rolling Stones. MICK JAGGER charts his extraordinary journey through scandal-ridden conspiracy, infamous prison spell, hordes of female admirers and a knighthood while stripping away the colossal fame, wealth and idolatry to reveal a story of talent and promise unfulfilled.

Understated yet ostentatious; the ultimate incarnation of modern man's favourite fantasy: 'sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll', yet blessed with taste and intelligence; a social chameleon who couldn't blend in if he tried; always moving with the Jagger swagger yet modest enough to be self-deprecating, Mick was a paradoxical energy that reconfigured the musical landscape.

This revelatory tour de force is ample tribute to a flawed genius, a Casanova, an Antichrist and a god who, with characteristic nonchalance realised the dreams of thousands of current contenders and rocker pretenders, longevity, while coasting on a sea of fur rugs.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Un bon moment 7 novembre 2013
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
J'ai passé un bon moment avec Mike et sa tyrannie du cool comme le dit Norman. Ouvrage bien construit, assez détaillé, je ne suis pas d'accord avec les critiques littéraires qui disaient en substance qu'à la fin l'on apprenait rien de nouveau. J'ai lu à peu près tout ce est sérieux sur les stones et celui-ci m'a encore surpris par l 'éclairage différent sur Mike que je n'avais pas trouvé ailleurs même si bien sûr à force de lire des trucs sur les stones on finit par relire les mêmes choses, Bien surpris et surtout bien écrit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Bio on one of Rock's True Legends 19 octobre 2012
Par Joseph Pedoto - Publié sur
I picked this up because I was impressed with Philip Norman's earlier book on John Lennon. I could not disagree more with the previous reviewer who found so many faults here. It also is not a "bio on the Stones, focusing on Mick." It is a biography of Mick Jagger. It may be that, in fact, we read different books.

If you are well-versed in the life story of Michael Philip jagger, then obviously most of the information here is not 'new' in any sense. I agree that Keith Richards' autobiography is more fun to read, as it captures his voice. With the caveat that he tells his tale as he remembers it and at times his story varies from other accounts. But biography and autobiography are two distinct categories.

I didn't get the sense that Norman knocked the Beatles in any way during the course of detailing Mick's life. He shows how highly Mick thought of John Lennon, in particular. I do think he does an excellent job of giving Mick's less publicized benevolence a fair hearing, along with his less charitable moments.

Since Marianne Faithfull does not paint herself in a flattering light but is, at times, brutally honest in her own book (sited here) I simply don't understand this criticism. Also, Brian Jones is not 'constantly denigrated.' Rather his incredible musical talents are highlighted and his seminal role in creating and promoting the band is detailed. His sad and very rapid decline into drugs and paranoia is portrayed with sympathy, especially in Mick's dealings with him

The biggest reveal here is that the decadent 'Lizard King' style rock god was always a role that Jagger played for commercial effect, not in any way a reflection of his real personality, intellect and interests. As for the former London School of Economics student being unaware that taxes were levied on his rock and roll income, Norman makes it clear that the entire band was being misled by their management about their finances.

As for 'the nothing new here' claim. It simply isn't true. An example: the real story behind the infamous Redlands drug bust is revealed for the first time, along with the identity of 'Acid King David.' For the details you must read the book. However, here's a connection that Norman didn't make: 'Acid King David' eventually marries Lotus Weinstock, the last girlfriend of Lenny Bruce.

The only real criticism that one can level is that the first half of Jagger's life is given so much detail and the second half considerably less so. Though I would also make the case that the first half of Jagger's life deserves more attention. Still, for a one volume bio on its subject, this book is the one to get. Of some note is that the author's first interview with Jagger took place back in 1965.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A pretty good bio on the Stones, focusing on Mick. 7 octobre 2012
Par Cbryce - Publié sur
But the author has some favs among the bunch, as I guess all writers do. He constantly denigrates Brian Jones, and puts Marianne Faithfull on a pedestal. She must have helped him with the book, as he clearly worships her and believes everything she says, while he basically says Keith made stuff up in his book. Maybe so, but I think all autobiographies are suspect.(This book of Norman's also has Eric Clapton married to someone named "Pamela" who was meant to be a suitable friend for Mick's girl, Marianne. Clapton had no such wife-I don't think he meant to say Pattie (Boyd) due to the time frame, still late sixties, so this is just an error.) Writer also cannot type the name Graham Parsons with referencing the late musician's "beauty"- a man crush perhaps.

The author does tend to build Mick up whenever possible, and also, to issue digs at the Beatles with surprising regularity. He also tends to "debunk" all stories regarding the band and/or Mick over the years, without giving any more than his say so that it didn't really happen that way, especially with regards to Altamont.

The book is also repetitious at times, as though the reader cannot remember something he wrote a few chapters back , so he details it again. Maybe he was being paid by the word.

I really did not uncover anything new in this book; he rehashes the same stories, the drug busts, the infamous Mars bar (over which he giggles and snorts repeatedly) the urinating scandal, as well as a claim that Bianca, too, relieved herself in a gutter during the filming of an aborted movie. Lots of references of who slept with who, allegedly. The saga of Marsha Hunt's baby with Mick, taking the side of Marsha Hunt in this case. Mick's obsession with order, discipline and money, nothing new there, save the little surprise that it never occurred to economic- minded Mick that taxes might have to be paid on rock and roll income. I also find it hard to believe that Eric Clapton actually auditioned and was turned down for the spot in the band vacated by Mick Taylor, due to Clapton's loathing of being in a band, and his own status at the time.

All in all, it is an okay book if you are not already full-versed on the history of the Stones. But even though this author repeatedly disparages it, Keith's book "Life" was far more entertaining.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Norman Helps Us Sort Fact from Fiction and Gives Us Details that are Omitted from Other Published Works on Jagger 26 octobre 2012
Par Bookreporter - Publié sur
When Michael Philip Jagger made his entrance into the world in Dartford, England, in 1943, his parents, Joe and Eva Jagger, surely had no idea of the magnitude of fame, notoriety and wealth their little boy would one day possess. By the time the rest of us became acquainted with Mick, however, there were definite signs of things to come.

In MICK JAGGER, Philip Norman begins with a bit of background on Mick, then known as Mike, his childhood, his parents and brother, and his early friendship with fellow Rolling Stone Keith Richards. We follow him to the London School of Economics where he likely gained the financial acumen that has allowed him to accumulate and manage the vast fortune he possesses today and to ensure the financial success of The Rolling Stones.

We soon catapult into the days preceding the runaway fame of The Rolling Stones and follow Mick through the ups and downs that have made up his life. The expulsion of Brian Jones from the band and the mystery of his subsequent death, the drug busts and raids, the competition with the Beatles, and Mick's exodus from England to France for tax purposes are fodder for our perusal in MICK JAGGER.

We also get the inside scoop on some of Mick's many relationship with women. Chrissie Shrimpton, Marianne Faithfull, Marsha Hunt, Bianca Jagger and Jerry Hall have all figured significantly in his life, and here we learn more about the unique mechanics of each relationship. The gratuitous sex with an ever-changing cast of characters that is part of Mick's bad boy persona and a detriment to maintaining serious relationships are also investigated.

Most fascinating of all are the frequent glimpses into what makes a man like Mick tick. The things that drive, motivate and excite him are all explored in a way that gives us a well-rounded picture of the intriguing man who is revered by some and reviled by others.

Of course, no biography would be complete without an examination of the deep and tumultuous relationship between "The Glimmer Twins," Mick and Keith. While the friendship has taken several hits throughout the years, the strange bond the two have had survived mostly intact and makes for interesting reading.

Last, but not least, the stories behind the songs, facts regarding controversial concerts like Hyde Park and Altamont, tales from Mick's big screen appearances, and details about his relationship with his manager from the early days, Andrew Loog Oldham, are included in this highly detailed portrait.

Author Philip Norman helps us sort fact from fiction and tells us when the two merge to create the larger-than-life persona of Mick Jagger. We find details here that are omitted from other published works on Mick, and we eat them up with the eagerness of starving natives. No matter how much we may protest, the truth is that we can't get enough of Mick Jagger, the man other men want to be and, God knows, millions of women want to be with.

Par The Booker - Publié sur

The author has done a very good job researching and uncovering new details about Mick Jagger. But it turns out - for this reader anyway - that Jagger's life appears to be too BIG just for this book. When you're writing about the front man of The Rolling Stones, who've been the world's most famous rock stars for 50 plus years, it's tough to include every detail. But Norman includes most. As mentioned, some are new but others were big news stories that helped shape the legend of The Rolling Stones. Drug busts, death, violence, mega-hit records, women, children and even Knighthood. And in fact, a running joke through the book is that Jagger had to return a big-money publishing advance to write his memoirs - claiming he couldn't remember much. According to the author, so many events and milestones that made up his life were so outrageous and headline making that it would be impossible for anyone to forget. But that's just an example of what makes Jagger still a bit of a mystery. In interviews he remains vague and secretive about much of his private and even professional, Rolling Stones life. He could be with a woman for years, have children together, and still make it seem in public as if "they're just good friends."
I enjoyed this book. When I mention the subject as being too big - it means the entire scope of Jagger's career simply includes too many milestone events and other interesting facts that could have been examined in more detail. One of my favorite Stones public relations move was when the band announced the 1975 U.S. tour by performing "Brown Sugar" on a flatbed trunk in Manhattan. In this book it wasn't even mentioned. And though the decline and death of Brian Jones and the tragedy that occured at Altamont in 1969 are told in detail, the violence and drug haze that surrounded 1972 "Exile On Main Street" tour seems glossed over in favor of rehashing the story that writer Truman Capote (too old) brought Jackie O's sister (too unknown) to meet the band. No Stones fan at that time really cared about Capote or "Princess Lee" - and we still don't.
But those are very minor ommissions and probably only noticable to a Stones fan like myself. For a good overview of the life of one of the most famous and notorious rock stars of all time (only Elvis, John Lennon and Paul McCartney could top Mick in that category) I recommend this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good bio but don't read this if you idolize the man 25 octobre 2012
Par Don D - Publié sur
I love the Stones but I don't have a particular fondness for Jagger, because I always thought Keith was the heart n soul of the band. This book looks at a great singer & at times a really shallow, greedy & unpleasant man - at least so it's presented here. Mick is not the soul of rock n roll if this book is anything to go by, and while the stories about the band are interesting I found myself with less n less time for the man as the pages rolled past.

If you want a Stones book that makes you proud, read Keith's Life.
