Just when you though you knew all there was to know about the Rolling Stones, a new Mick Jagger biography reveals details of his love life and his complex relationship with band mate Keith Richards.
Publisher Ecco, a Harper Collins imprint, describes the bio, simply titled Mick Jagger, as "The real story of how a shy economics student became a modern Antichrist...of the beautiful women from Chrissie Shrimpton to Jerry Hall, whom he has bedded but not always dominated...of the enduring but ever-fraught partnership with his "Glimmer Twin," Keith Richards. Mick Jagger, above all, explores the keen and calculating intelligence that has kept the Stones on their plinth as 'the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band' for half a century." You can also enjoy a generous preview of the book at the publisher's website.
Author Phillip Norman has written three previous biographies of the Stones, as well as what the New York Times calls the definitive book about the Beatles: Shout!: The True Story of the Beatles.
Mick Jagger will be available October 2.
