How Mick Jagger Achieved a Net Worth of $360 Million

Mick Jagger is one of the most successful and well-known English people in the music industry. This talented singer, songwriter, composer, and actor has achieved great things despite having no family background in entertainment and he is best-known as the lead singer of the Rolling Stones. He now has a reported personal net worth of $360 million. So, how has Mick Jagger reached these heights and become so rich?

Sir Michael Philip Jagger was born on July 26, 1943, in Dartford, Kent. At primary school, Keith Richards, who later became a bandmate, was his classmate. Although Jagger always sang as a child, this was not his intended career path. He originally intended to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a teacher. It was a chance encounter with Keith Richards that changed his chosen path. The two resumed their friendship when they realized they had a shared passion for music.

After leaving school in 1961, Jagger moved into a flat in London with Brian Jones, who later became the guitarist for the Rolling Stones. They started planning their own rhythm and blues groups, which they called Blues Incorporated, but Jagger was still pursuing an academic career. He was studying at the London School of Economics with a government grant and had begun to consider careers in either journalism or politics.

At the same time, Brian Jones began performing at the Ealing Club and Jagger and Richards would go along to Jam with the group. This led to Mick Jagger becoming a featured singer and it laid the foundations for the group that would later become the Rolling Stones.

In the early days of the Rolling Stones, the group had very little equipment and would play for free in clubs in London. Jagger, Richards, and Jones were joined by Tony Chapman on the drums, Dick Taylor on bass, and Ian Stewart on the piano. Initially, they covered American rhythm and blues songs before Jagger and Richards began writing their own music. The duo also began writing songs for other artists.

During the 1960s, the group established themselves in the music industry and started topping the charts in the United Kingdom and they released several albums. In 1965, they released their first internationally successful single ‘I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’. This was a song written by Jagger and Richards and it propelled the group to international fame.

Despite achieving great success in the 1960s, the group had begun to draw attention to themselves in the later years of the decade because of their reckless behavior. This predominantly related to their drug abuse. In 1969, Jones chose to leave the band with the option to return if he wanted to as he had stated he couldn’t go on the road again. Within a month of leaving the band, he was found dead at home in his swimming pool.

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, the success of Jagger and the Rolling Stones continued. They released many chart-topping singles and albums during these decades and continued to thrill fans with their passionate performances.

Jagger began a career as a solo artist in the 1980s and released his first solo album, ‘She’s the Boss’, in 1985. He also collaborated with many other artists during this decade and continued to write songs, both for himself and for other artists. The Rolling Stones made a comeback in the 1990s and Jagger also continued to enjoy his solo career. Jagger continued to release music both with the group and as a soloist into the new Millennium.

Mick Jagger’s successful career in the music industry has spanned six decades and this is how he has made most of his money. Sales of his singles and albums, along with ticket sales for live performances, royalties for his music, and fees for appearances have all contributed to him achieving a personal net worth of $360 million. However, this is not the only way this talented man has made money as he has also had a career in the film industry. He had appeared in a documentary film about the Rolling Stones in 1968 and had a few small roles in short films in the late 1960s. His first real venture into acting was in 1970 when he had roles in ‘Ned Kelly’ and ‘Performance’; the latter of which is still the film for which he is best-known. In total, Jagger is credited with appearing in 26 films. These include film documentaries, short films, and feature films.

In his personal life, Mick Jagger is also well-known for his many relationships with women. Although he has only been married and divorced once, he has eight children with five women. He also has five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
