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.”
“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.”

Présentation de l'éditeur
Building on over four years of in-depth, exhaustive research and exclusive interviews with the many fascinating people who shared Jagger's life, MICK JAGGER provides fascinating insights into the iconic superstar's childhood in well-heeled postwar England; the profound influence of the Blues on his musical education; his intense connection, tumultuous friendship, and creative partnership with Keith Richards; his relationship with the deeply troubled and charismatic Brian Jones; the women in his life-including Marianne Faithfull, Bianca Jagger, and Jerry Hall-and the rise of the Stones from an early '60s pop boy band to the excesses of Altamont, on through their enduring, indefatigable career.
One of the world's most instantly recognizable faces, Mick Jagger is perhaps the most private, most enigmatic superstar there is. A careful cultivator of his public persona, he has sworn never to produce his own memoir-and no truly penetrating biography of this extraordinary musician exists. With MICK JAGGER (complete with never before seen photographs), Philip Norman reveals the man behind the myth in this be-all, end-all biography of the star.
