‘Mick Jagger’ by Philip Norman
A jarring truth is that there have been more Mick Jagger biographies (three) than Rolling Stones tours (none) in the past five years. Now comes the best of the three Jagger biographies, succinctly named “Mick Jagger’’ though it’s a sprawling, 622-page opus. The author is Philip Norman, who has written biographies of Buddy Holly, John Lennon, and Elton John. The level of detail — and new revelations — dwarfs the amount found in the other two recent Jagger books.
