Mick Jagger has had a full and exciting life centered on a musical career that many can only dream of. He has toured across the world and played at numerous music venues. On February 21st Mick Jagger was given a musical opportunity that few before him have had and that was to play at the White House, though he wasn’t with his usual band members.
Mick Jagger was teamed up with blues legend BB King, Buddy Guy, Keb Mo and Jeff Beck. Mick’s musical company didn’t stop there, in fact President Barrack Obama even took part in this music event. He only sang a few lines of Sweet Home Chicago, though he still sang. How many musicians have had a chance to sing beside a US president?
Mick Jagger took to the stage and looked and sounded as natural as he always has. He remained unnerved by his audience that was certainly unlike any audience he has ever played for in the past. That is a large part of what has taken him to the top, his musical talents combined with his steady flow of pure confidence. He played as well as he always has without missing a single beat, and yes Mick Jagger can still move in his famous Mick Jagger style. The 69 year old Rock n Roll icon showed the US president, the white staff house and the American public that he is as much of a musician today as he was the day he played his first show.
