biography

Formed London, 1962.

More than anybody else, The Rolling Stones have defined the parameters of rock’n’roll. Of course, without Robert Johnson, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and Buddy Holly, Keith Richards (guitar) and Bill Wyman (bass) would probably be lowlifes propping up the bar at their local pub and Charlie Watts (drums) might be nothing but an unfulfilled jazz aficionado. If there had been no Mick Jagger (vocals), however, hard rock, heavy metal, glam, punk and grunge would have been unthinkable. While that may be unfair to the talents of Richards and Brian Jones, who both hot-wired blues guitar riffs into something else entirely, and may sell short the ability of Watts, who is surely the swingingest drummer in rock, Jagger has unquestionably developed much of rock’s lyrical terrain and, more importantly, created the rock’n’roll persona. Single-handedly, Jagger invented that peculiarly British notion of part-brat, part-camp, self-conscious stardom that has been picked up by everyone from David Bowie to Jarvis Cocker. For Americans, who have never been very attuned to irony and posturing, Jagger’s macho, don’t-give-a-fuck attitude and threatening snarl became the obligatory rock-star stance and played a large part in launching The Standells, The Stooges, Aerosmith and Pussy Galore.
