Description du produit
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.”
—Winnipeg Free Press
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. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié.

Both Mick and Keith were born in the same year I was and so in a sense, we are part of each other's history. I loved dancing to their music but never went to a concert (thought they were way too crowded and too noisy.) I was busy bringing up a family and didn't pay too much attention to the lives of performers.
This year, however, widowed and long-time empty nested, I bought this book on kindle and have ordered Rolling Stones' DVDs through Netflix. I have read and watched concurrently and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Regarding the biases some reviewers thought this author has..... I don't think he is a Mick Jagger apologist. He has some positive things to say about Jagger, and just as many negative things. I didn't feel he was unfair to any of the other stones either. He tries to present a fair picture of each person. There were no villains in the book and no saints. I didn't get the impression he was on anybody's "side."
There were a lot of references to the Beatles. As I read it I thought, "I'll bet this guy has also written a book about the Beatles," and, yes he has. It's not a major flaw though.
I'd recommend this book to anybody who wants to read an overview of the Stones career. Even though it's called a biography of Mick Jagger, it's really a history of the whole band, with an emphasis on Jagger. It does blow away some rock myths--such as the myth that the police waited until George Harrison left Redlands before raiding the house in order to portect the Beatles reputation. Also the explanation about the set up at Altamont was good. Most people do think that was a Stones concert, not a multi-group event, and most people do think it was the Stones who gave the security task to the Hell's Angels.
All in all this is a balanced look at the topic. I would certainly consider reading other books by this author.
