Mick Jagger is one of the most recognisable and influential British musicians of the modern era. As lead singer and songwriter for The Rolling Stones, a prolific and much sought-after collaborator, a successful producer and a lauded solo artist in his own right, Mick has set and maintained the gold standard for popular performance and creativity for nearly five decades.
Michael Philip Jagger was born in 1943, in Dartford, Kent. A good student, Mick attended grammar school and then won a place at the prestigious London School of Economics. As has been well documented, he was a childhood friend of future Stones bandmate, guitarist and co-writer Keith Richards, with whom he lost touch during adolescence, before a chance meeting on the platform of the local railway station in 1960 brought them back together in their late teens. Discovering a shared passion for American rhythm and blues and rock’n’roll, they started hanging out, playing records and then making music.
Mick Jagger, along with Brian Grazer, Jagged Film’s Victoria Pearman and Imagine Entertainment’s Erica Huggins, are producing a biopic about musical genius James Brown. Tate Taylor is in negotiations to direct THE UNTITLED JAMES BROWN PROJECT for Imagine Entertainment and Jagged Films based on a screenplay by Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth.
