Review: Mick Jagger
Mick Jagger by Philip Norman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Mick Jagger by Philip Norman is a biography that spans the life and career of the great Mick Jagger, rock and roll superstar of the last fifty years. The book chronicles his time from birth to Joe and Eva Jagger up through 2011. In between those events, readers get to explore the blues-infused life of one of the best known names in 20th century music.
Although many of the stories in this book have multiple versions through memory fog or a haze of drug use, Norman works to include all sides of the story as they are remembered by the people that knew Jagger best. It is enlightening for readers who don't know much about Jagger, but it is also entertaining for the diehard Rolling Stones fans. It is a recommended read to anyone who likes to vicariously live the rock star life through words.
