Sir Michael Philip Jagger (born 26 July 1943), is one half of the most potent songwriting duo of the late '60s and '70s, an upper-class Englishman with a degree from the London School of Economics who still managed to sound authentic channeling American southern blues onstage. Jagger's career has now spanned over half a century, and has included drug arrests, globally notorious romantic entanglements (Bianca Jagger, Jerry Hall, Marianne Faithful, etc.) and record sales that handily exceed 250 million. In 1989, Jagger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2003 he was, incredibly, given a knighthood.
