Sir Michael Philip Jagger was born in Dartford, England on this date in 1943. He took to music quickly and joined the church choir. By the time he reached age 14 he acquired a guitar, a harmonica and a pretty good record collection.  But it was a chance meeting on a railway platform in July of 1960 with an old classmate that would forever alter his life and the Rock and Roll world forever. For that was the day he ran into Keith Richards who was floored by some of the records he was carrying around. 

Fast Forward to over five decades of writing, recording and performing some of the most influential and iconic Rock of all time.
