He was born July 26, 1943 in Dartford, England. He attended primary school with Keith Richards, guitarist and founding member for the Stones. The Rolling Stones made their first appearance under the name in 1962, with the original band of Jagger, Richards, Brian Jones, Dick Taylor, and Ian Stewart, and Tony Chapman. The popularity of the band led to the solo career of Jagger, which began in the 1980s. Jagger has performed alongside a large list of singers and artists, such as B.B. King, Michael Jackson, will.i.am, David Bowie, and Lenny Kravitz. Jagger has appeared in many films, including starring roles in Performance, Ned Kelly and numerous documentaries based on the Stones.

His knighthood generated controversy due to the nature of his music, and the lack of philanthropic works common to most who receive the honor.
