5 Crazy Things That You Didn’t Know About Mick Jagger

Ever heard of the Rolling Stones? If not, you’ve probably been living under a rock for the last 50 years. Everyone knows Mick Jagger is 100% legendary. But maybe you didn’t know that he’s survived a murder plot or that he hates interviews. Here are five crazy things that you didn’t know about Mick Jagger.

He Doesn’t Do Interviews

It’s hard to believe that someone this famous could avoid doing press interviews. But Mick Jagger is so epic, he pretty much lets the music speak for itself. And clearly, it’s working very well. He doesn’t do press nowadays because, as he says, “why do things you don’t need to?”

He’s Not Impressed By America

When Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones first landed in America in 1964, it was a much different time. America was still segregated and much of the nation was very conservative. He just didn’t fit into the social scene back then. America was clearly way too square for this British rocker!

He Survived A Murder Plot

Believe it or not, someone actually wanted Jagger dead at some point. After beefing with the Hells Angels, the motorcycle gang plotted revenge on Jagger. They planned to attack his home in the Hamptons from the coast, but a storm came and overturned their boat, throwing them into the sea!

He Writes His Songs On Tour

Ever wonder what inspires a Rolling Stones’ song? According to Jagger, it’s all about location, location, location. Whether he’s poolside in Tampa, Florida or in the middle of nowhere in Australia, he’s constantly inspired by the things he sees on tour. And he’s not going to be running out of content anytime soon!

He’s A Fan Of Tequila Sunrises

Last but not least, if you ever run into Mick Jagger in a bar, you should know what his favorite drink is. This rock guru prefers tequila sunrises, and his choice of drink even inspired the Eagles’ song of the same name. What an epic story. Long live the original hipster!

When Real-Life Plays A Part In TV Plotlines

Not every show has its plot lined out from the moment the pilot airs, and still, sometimes real-life can get in the way. Even the best laid plans can go awry, and sometimes plotlines are created entirely to accommodate an actor’s unexpected personal issue. From pregnancies to off-set injuries (and of course plenty of on-set injuries), writers are reworking scripts so that you’d never know something else was happening behind the scenes. Think you know why an actor exited a show? We’ll bet you didn’t even realize that some major show plots happened out of serendipity. Read on to find out how in some cases, the truth really is stranger than fiction.
