Chris Jagger - Music Artist Band Bio

Biography

Born 19 December 1947, Dartford, Kent, England. Writer, actor and occasional singer whose work has failed to overcome his familial burden: he is the brother of Mick Jagger. Chris first attended Manchester University to study drama, before becoming Assistant Stage Manager at Hampstead Theatre CluBorn Later he earned his crust designing clothes for fashionable London, including a jacket which appeared on the cover of one of Jimi Hendrix's albums. He then departed for the hippie pilgrimage, visiting India and Nepal. On his return the was offered a touring role in Hair, and there was additionally a Kenneth Anger film shot in Egypt in 1972. The rest of the decade was spent living at and maintaining one of Mick's country houses in Newbury, where he would look after guests wishing to use the mobile studio there (Led Zeppelin, Who, Faces etc.). Brother Mick actually helped out on one of Chris' early 70s sets, which laced folk and country with a drawl highly reminiscent of his sibling. Other projects, including efforts to record a country album with the Flying Burrito Brothers, and work with Steve Cropper, were aborted. He turned instead to acting, working in repertory theatre after training under Stella Adler. After his guitar company folded in 1984 he turned to writing, first in music journalism but later tackling other subjects. The late 80s saw a return to music, working on sessions with French writer Franck Langolf (who penned many of Vanessa Paradis' hits), though these came to nothing. However, he did make small writing contributions to the Rolling Stones' albums Dirty Work and Steel Wheels. In 1993, he released his first album for 20 years, which this time included Cajun, R&B and swing influences. Among the accompanying musicians featured were Charlie Hart (fiddle), Ed Dean (guitar), Malcolm Mortimore (drums) and Robbie McKidd (accordion). Other guests included Leo Sayer, Dave Gilmour (who had once played with McKidd in Cambridge band Jokers Wild) and brother Mick.
