Mick Jagger, full name Sir Michael Philip Jagger, was born on July 26, 1943 in Dartford, Kent.

Keith was good childhood friends with Keith Richard (another member of The Rolling Stones). They both went to Wentowrth Primary School together and were even neighbors for a period of time before the Richards family moved on.
They eventually bumped into each other again on a train. Jagger was carrying albums from Chess Records by Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters. This chance meeting set off their friendship again.
