LONDON – Front man of the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, was as a child made fun of by his own mother, making him insecure and timid, according to biographer Philip Norman.

Norman is reportedly an expert on everything ‘Rolling Stones’. He just completed his fifth book on the legendary British band. His newest book entitled: ‘Mick Jagger’ is all about the prolific singer’s character and shares ‘secrets’ about the man, no one ever knew before.
“Mick never gives himself completely. There is nothing about Mick in the song’s Mick sings. He dreams up a character and he plays that while performing,” Norman writes.
Philip Norman also writes:
Mick’s personality in the band were created during the early days of the band because Andew Oldham, original manager of the Stones, wanted to create the exact opposite of ‘The Beatles’.
“The Beatles were charming, loving and socially acceptable. The Stones had to be devilish, wild and rebels. Mick most definitely was not wild or a rebel when he joined the Stones. But Andrew Oldham told him: ‘do as if you are and you will be rich’. He’s been doing that for fifty years now.”
“Mick is a prudent human. People see him as reckless but that’s not how he is. He only got caught up with things by pure accident, not because he wanted that.”
Mick Jagger became famous for his active and provocative way of dancing, according to Norman. “But his mother thought all that dancing was just nonsense and show-off and use to laugh very hard with Mick Jagger’s moves.”
It’s not clear if Jagger authorized the biography or if the book is a compilation of Norman’s own findings and conclusions about The Rolling Stones and its members.
