MICK JAGGER: Author Philip Norman on His New Bio
Mick Jagger is really "very different from what people think and what, different from what you might expect." So says author Philip Norman in his newly published biography of The Rolling Stones front-man. His most interesting discoveries involve the young Jagger, who was "not sure he could go into the spotlight as the iconic feature we now know." Having written an earlier book on the Stones, Norman admits the additional research he continued led to him changing his opinion of Mick -- Norman finds a lot "that's rather endearing" and "a much more interesting psychological study." He also shows how Jagger overcame the press's initial criticism of the band's scruffy image -- how they overcame their image of being the anti-Christ.
