He is, without question, one of the dominant cultural figures of our time. Swaggering, strutting, sometimes sinister, always fascinating, Mick Jagger boasts a career spanning four decades - from the turbulent sixties and sybaritic seventies through the booming eighties to the cautious nineties. His is the story of a generation. With Elvis Presley and John Lennon gone, he is arguably the last of the rock titans. Yet Jagger, jealously guarding the secrets of his life, has always managed to remain the most enigmatic of icons. As Jagger celebrates his fiftieth birthday in 1993, best-selling author Christopher Andersen strips the mask from Jumpin' Jack Flash in a no-holds-barred biography as shocking and uncompromising as Jagger himself. The riveting portrait that emerges is based on years of research and countless interviews with friends, teachers, fellow musicians, family members, neighbors, industry insiders, and lovers.
