There is no doubt that Mick Jagger is one of the most legendary figures in rock and roll. As the leader of The Rolling Stones and the bad boy of the British music scene in the 1960s and 1970s, Mick Jagger has long ago established his reputation as an icon with the likes of musical heavyweights such as Freddie Mercury, John Lennon, and David Bowie. He is beloved by people of all ages because to his one-of-a-kind singing style and signature dancing movements, and Jagger does not seem to be slowing down any time in the near future.
Jagger was born on July 26, 1943, and spent his childhood in Dartford, which is located in the United Kingdom. He first showed an interest in singing when he was very young. “When I was a kid, I was constantly singing. When I was little, I was one of those kids who just enjoyed singing. Some children like singing in choruses, while others prefer to perform for themselves in front of the mirror. “I also loved listening to singers on the radio — the BBC or Radio Luxembourg — or watching them on TV and in the movies,” Jagger said in the biography “According to the Rolling Stones,” as reported by Reader’s Digest. “I was in the church choir and I also loved listening to singers on the radio,” Jagger said.
He had just started his studies at the London School of Economics when a fortuitous encounter with an old buddy from elementary school named Keith Richards completely altered the direction that his life would take from that point on. After developing a strong friendship via their mutual appreciation of rhythm and blues, the two individuals started getting together to try their hands at making music together. By 1962, he and Richards, together with their mutual friend Brian Jones, had moved into a shared residence in Chelsea, London, and had begun to explore seriously the possibility of a career in music.
In spite of the fact that Jagger intended to pursue a career in music, he continued to study business with the assistance of a grant from the government. He did this in the event that his musical aspirations were not successful, he might follow a career as a journalist or politician. According to the book “Jagger” written by Christopher Andersen, however, Jagger gave up on this idea once he started earning gigs because he believed that doing both would require “too much hard work.”
Because of this, Jagger decided to devote all of his time and energy to music. In July of 1962, Jagger was the band’s vocalist when they made their first performance under the name Rolling Stones at a jazz club in London. The other members of the band, Keith Richards and Brian Jones, played guitars. By the following year, they had amassed sufficient influence to begin performing at venues that were completely sold out. Following the success of their first two singles to reach No. 1 in the UK in 1964, Jagger and Richards started contributing original material to the band in the form of songwriting. They collaborated on the song “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” which went on to become their first international smash hit.
They have created some of the most lasting rock ‘n roll hits throughout the course of their phenomenal 60 years together, including “Paint It Black,” “Honky Tonk Woman,” “Sympathy For The Devil,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” and “Gimme Shelter.” The Rolling Stones are one of the most successful musical bands of all time and have been inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the UK Music Hall of Fame. In addition, The Rolling Stones have received several Grammy Awards, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. They are consistently ranked as one of the finest bands of all time by the industry’s most reputable magazines.
The band’s image as party-heavy troublemakers started to emerge as a result of their streak of chart-topping albums, which they issued consecutively. Alongside this was Jagger’s own reputation for being able to draw the attention of women. As a result, the media started to speculate about his sexual dalliances and track his every move in order to get insider information.
Models Chrissie Shrimpton, Bebe Buell, and Carla Bruni, as well as singers Marianne Faithfull and Marsha Hunt, have been mentioned as possible partners for Mick Jagger. Despite the fact that he had been in a number of romances, the rock singer had only been legally married and divorced once, in 1971, to the actress Bianca Jagger, who was born in Nicaragua. Later, in the year 1990, he had a wedding ceremony in Bali, Indonesia, with the American model Jerry Hall, to whom he had been romantically linked since the late 1970s; however, the union was never formally recognized. When Jagger started dating Sophie Dahl, she was just 24 years old, and he was 56 years old. This relationship made news since Sophie Dahl is the daughter of the famous novelist Roald Dahl. He was also romantically involved with the fashion designer L’Wren Scott until she passed away in 2014. He was the only beneficiary of her inheritance, which was valued at $9 million, and he used the money to endow a scholarship at the Central Saint Martins College in London.
In the same year that Scott passed away, Jagger started dating an American dancer named Melanie Hamrick. Two years later, in 2016, the rock musician and the ballerina became parents to a boy named Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger. Hamrick was 29 years old at the time. Jagger was 73. After having seven previous children with four different women before the birth of Deveraux, Jagger became a father for the eighth time when he became a parent to young Deveraux. Jade Jagger, who designs jewelry; Georgia May Jagger, a model; and Elizabeth Jagger, who models and acts, are three of his offspring who have achieved notable success.
Hamrick, who was performing with the American Ballet Company when she first met Jagger in New York, hung up her dancing shoes when she became pregnant with the couple’s kid, but she has not stopped working as a choreographer since then. In September of 2022, she also released the first edition of her first book, which was an erotic fiction novel named “First Position.”
It is very evident that Hamrick takes great pride in her baby, judging by the countless images of him that she uploads on various social media platforms. Deveraux, with his blond hair and blue eyes, is the epitome of what it means to be a pure and innocent youngster. It is evident that he has also inherited the characteristic features of his father, including the same prominent pout and downturned eyes.
The doting mother honored her son’s sixth birthday on December 8, 2022, by uploading a heartfelt Instagram post that included a carousel of images to the platform. They demonstrated how much of a mini-Jagger Deveraux is maturing into throughout the course of these events. The first photo was a portrait of Deveraux wearing a T-shirt with the iconic lips and tongue insignia of The Rolling Stones. The picture was taken in what seemed to be a recording studio. The second photograph showed a happy Deveraux riding a ride at a theme park, while the third shot showed him being hugged by Jagger and Hamrick, who was also carrying a colorful birthday cake. Both of these photos were taken at the same time. The very last picture revealed a euphoric Deveraux waving to the camera as he was having fun on a ride at the carnival.
“Wonderful Devi, we love you so much!!!!! Happy 6th Birthday to you!” The description for the post was written by Hamrick, and it was followed by a series of emojis depicting a red heart. When Hamrick uploaded a mirror selfie of herself dressed for a night out on the town in November 2022, she started speculations that she was about to be married to her rockstar boyfriend. This was before she released the gorgeous family images, which just added fuel to the fire. Followers with sharp eyes saw a glittering band on her ring finger, which immediately had fans’ tongues buzzing. She accompanied the image with the statement, “A ballerina hairstyle fits with anything.”
Even while there is no confirmation that the iconic rocker will walk down the aisle for a second time, witnessing their son Deveraux develop into virtually an exact replica of his famous father seems to make Hamrick and Jagger as content as any parents could ever be.
