Unfortunately, bassist Bill Wyman says the singer's demeanor remained "timid," and ultimately, the violence escalated to the point where one audience member pulled out a gun As Rolling Stone notes, four people ultimately died at the disastrous concert, which some say marked the ending point of the s.
Jagger later said about the tragic event: "I thought the scene in San Francisco was supposed to be so groovy. It was terrible. If Jesus had been there he would have been crucified.
Every famous person has enemies, but Mick Jagger's antagonists have been quite a bit more hostile than the average hater. According to The Telegraph , the tragic events of the Altamont Speedway concert, where the group of Hells Angels who were reportedly acting as security killed a year-old member of the audience, made Jagger decide against using the services of the motorcycle club ever again.
One group of Hells Angels didn't particularly care for getting the cold shoulder treatment from the singer, so they decided to kill him. Their plan was to attack the singer's holiday residence in Long Island, New York from the sea, so they could avoid the security at the front of the building and sneak in through the beachfront garden.
Luckily for Jagger, the plan was foiled by an unexpected storm, which threw all the Hells Angels overboard. Though they all survived, it appears that the experience was enough to deter them from their Jagger-killing ways , as it looks like this was their only attempt on the singer's life. Strangely, Jagger himself was apparently never informed about his would-be killers.
The news subsequently made it to the press, and we can only imagine the Rolling Stones frontman's face when he picked up the morning paper that day. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards might be among the most wildly successful songwriting partnerships in history, but as Barry Egan of The Irish Independent puts it, their personal history can at times be described as a "civil war between two biggest ego maniacs in the business.
Later, Richards allegedly took offense to Jagger's "indifference" with the band and the frontman's less-than-rocking solo output, making several swipes at the singer's arrogance on his own solo album in According to Ultimate Classic Rock , the men's rocky relationship threatened to break up the band numerous times over the years, and as of , Richards said that a lot of their problems stem from the fact that the men have always been a little unsure of where they stand with each other.
Richards, meanwhile, interjects when Jagger starts making decisions he feels are bad for the Rolling Stones, and admits he sometimes wakes up at night to write down lines he can use to put the singer in place. In fact, he and partner in crime Keith Richards were the first band members to have troubles with the law, when the police raided a drug-fueled party at Richards' home in and arrested the pair.
Jagger was originally sentenced to three months in prison Richards got a full year , but an appeal managed to dismiss the sentences two months later. In , Jagger was arrested at another drug bust, this time with girlfriend Marianne Faithfull. In , Jagger and Richards were arrested in Boston after an altercation with a photographer. This time the mayor of Boston himself bailed them out so they could make it to a scheduled concert in time.
Jagger has said they've come to a sort of agreement over the years that they're just flexible when it comes to the who-does-what of the thing. But the drugs Oh, with difficulty. It's never easy. I don't find it easy dealing with people with drug problems. If you're really on some heavily addictive drug, you think about the drug and everything else is secondary. You try and make everything work, but the drug comes first.
Even when he was at his worst, Jagger says Richards was still creative — it just took a long, long time to get anything accomplished. It affected everyone in certain ways. But I've never really talked to Keith about this stuff.
So I have no idea what he feels. It was the goal of any aspiring British musician to get big in America — hopping across the pond and scoring a hit in the American charts was to Make It. It was the same for Mick Jagger and the Stones, but once he got there, he wasn't all that impressed with what he found. When the Stones went on tour in , they hit the big cities, of course. There was still segregation. And the attitudes were fantastically old-fashioned. Americans shocked me by their behavior and their narrow-mindedness.
Still, Jagger says they always wanted to make it in America, as they were keenly aware that breaking out in the States was an even bigger deal since they weren't American themselves. There's a weird story that goes around every so often about just why Jagger has a distinctive voice.
It's retold by Science of Rock n Roll, and it basically goes like this: A young Jagger was playing basketball or, sometimes it was soccer when he ran into another player, bit off the end of his tongue, and swallowed it. It's rumored to have changed his voice and his speech patterns, and it's a pretty good story, right? It's not the only story of that kind out there, either — Freddie Mercury's teeth were famously thought to be responsible for changing the shape of his mouth and giving him his incredible vocal range, although many experts disagree.
While losing a big chunk of tongue might change someone's speech patterns and accent a bit, it doesn't really have anything to do with the tone of voice. So, it's just a great story — but hey, it works with the logo, right? There are the Rolling Stones, and then there's Rolling Stone magazine. Clearly, there's a relationship there, right?
Yes, but it's not a pleasant one. Not only was it a bit of a surprise that it had been named after the group, but the original Rolling Stones weren't even on the first cover of Rolling Stone.
Hagan says the offense kicked off a feud that lasted for the next five decades, and it was Richards who summed up the unofficial position of the band members like this: "We thought, 'What a thief! And they took action, too, hitting Wenner and Rolling Stone with a cease-and-desist letter instead of the exclusive interview Wenner had promised new readers.
Tensions continued to run high, even after Jagger and Wenner met and even after the Stones finally appeared on the cover. Wenner was outraged, but by the time he got the magazine under control, Mick Jagger had gotten bored with the whole thing and headed off to Australia to appear in an art-house movie. They called him "an embodiment of the music itself," and it was an apt description. Jones had died at the bottom of a swimming pool after years of drug abuse and scandals.
He was the wild child back in the day, and when Jagger spoke with Rolling Stone almost three decades later, he opened up about their falling-out. He said that recording the song "No Expectations" was the last time Jones was "totally involved in something that was really worth doing," and that was a long way from the obsession he'd had in the early days of the group.
According to Jagger, "he was a very paranoid personality and not at all suited to be in show business. The falling-out happened slowly, and eventually left Jagger feeling they had no choice but to fire him — particularly when he got to the point where he couldn't even hold a guitar. Drug addiction wasn't well understood at the time, and Jagger may feel a little guilt over how it was handled. Try and try again According to him via the Huffington Post , Jagger has had more than 4, different partners over the course of his career although it's worth noting that number also includes some relationships that have been disputed.
