Mick Jagger changed musical tastes many times throughout his career, but always remained true to the rock genre. Throughout his career, he managed to craft an entirely unique sound that was steeped in rockabilly, blues, psychedelic, glam rock, classic rock and even country music. He was an innovator, not only in the playing of his guitar, vocals, and songwriting, but also in the visual appearance of his band. He made several movies during his career and established several well-known theme parks, as well as a film festival.
In the mid seventies, Mick Jagger and the rest of the band decided to form a new band called the Yardbirds. The original band featured vocalist Johnnie Lee, guitarists Mickram Jones and Charlie Watts, bassist/singer Peter Banks, and drummer Don Taylor. After a few months into the new band, the band began to change its name to The Yardbirds, due to legal issues with the name before it was finally released. This band had an instant following of fans, primarily because of the band’s energetic live performances.
Mick Jagger, who was still very much focused on his rock and roll style of singing, went on to have an equally impressive career as a guitarist. He played several times on stage with different groups including Motley Crew and Highway 14. However, he is most widely recognized as one of the founding members of The Yardbirds. The band won four Grammys between 1967 and 1969. During this span, many other guitarists joined the band, but none were as successful as Mick Jagger.
Mick Jagger’s musical interests were broad. He was a devoted fan of blues and rock music. He would often listen to records of these genres and recreate the sounds for his guitar playing. He would bring various influences from these styles into his own solo work. His early work particularly shows a strong influence from the Rolling Stones and the Yardbirds.
Mick Jagger’s guitar skills are well-known and are evidenced by the numerous songs that he has recorded during his career. He has written some of his best songs, featuring a great range of sounds – everything from a hard rock groove to a more melodic acoustic piece. Many of his songs have been recorded in the top ten on the chart, including hit songs “Red Hot Chili Peppers” and” chemist lab”. Other highlights include “Red Hot Chili Peppers” which reached number three in the UK and number four in the US. There are also a few covers of Jagger songs throughout his career.
