Mick Jagger can certainly be called one of the most popular frontmen in the history of rock and rolla

But Jagger has also led a really colourful life, as a new book Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger, has revealed. CS brings you some insights into the man:

>> The book reveals that Jagger once pursued actress Angelina Jolie whilst he was still married to supermodel Jerry Hall. She played the part of a stripper in a Rolling Stones video.

>> The book also alleges that the now 68-year-old rocker had a longterm love affair with fellow musical genius David Bowie. After meeting in the early 70s, both stars became fascinated with one another. Not long after their first encounter in 1973, when Mick visited Bowie backstage at one of his concerts, their relationship quickly turned physical.

>> There is no question that Mick Jagger has romanced a lot of women in his day. But the new book plumbs the depths of this rock star’s insatiable libido, revealing the details of how he stole former French First Lady Carla Bruni away from Eric Clapton.

>> Mick has a killer instinct for business, which has enabled him to amass a personal fortune of over USD 400 million.

>> Jagger’s relationship with cannabis in his youth is well known; the singer was arrested in 1967 alongside Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards for possession of the drug, and was initially sentenced to a year in prison. UK
