Most know Mick Jagger as Ladies' Man. Over the course of his life, the Rolling Stones singer had numerous relationships with the most sought-after women of his time, including Jerry Hall and Marianne Faithfull. Jagger has been married twice. In total, he had children from five women.
But the love life of the 79-year-old should not have exhausted that. As the journalist Lesley-Ann Jones writes in her recently published band biography "The Stone Age", Jagger is said to have been not averse to the male gender either.
First of all, this is neither particularly surprising nor new. It has long been known, for example, that Mick Jagger also slept with David Bowie in the 1970s. It is piquant, however, that the Stones frontman is said to have had affairs with two band members: his longtime friend and companion Keith Richards and the guitarist Mick Taylor, who belonged to the group in the best phase between 1969 and 1974 and played on the classics "Let It Bleed", "Sticky Fingers" and "Exile on Main St." contributed.
In the interview, Jones quotes two contemporary witnesses, including model and actress Anita Pallenberg, who had an affair with Mick Jagger and was in a long-term relationship with Richards for several years. Pallenberg, who died in 2017, said: "When I first met her I saw that Mick was in love with Keith.
Faithfull, who was in a relationship with Jagger in the late 1960s, puts it similarly. "I had a hunch there was a sexual undercurrent between the two of them. I sensed Mick was bisexual."
Mick Jagger's affair with his namesake Mick Taylor is backed by more than one hunch: According to the book, Taylor's wife caught her husband in bed with his band's lead singer.
Asked by the "Daily Mail" for a statement on the book, the three musicians did what British gentlemen are used to doing: they remained silent.
