Fans of The Rolling Stones might not know that Mick Jagger has a younger brother named Chris, who is also a musician. Mick has had tremendous success with The Rolling Stones, but Chis’ career hasn’t quite been the same. This does not mean that there is any bad blood or jealousy between the brothers. It’s the exact opposite, actually. Chris enjoys his career and would not trade it for a career like Mick’s. He’s glad he’s not Rolling Stone.
Chris Jagger says he loves the freedom to do whatever he wants in his career
Being Mick Jagger’s brother is not the easiest thing to do. But Chris is used to people pointing at him. He understands that fans will always recognize him because of his nickname, but he wants journalists to see his career without thinking of Mick or comparing him.
“If you really want to sing, you do it for yourself. If you keep at it, you get better at it. I feel like I’m still developing in my career. As a brother Being a person like Mick in form gives you a standard of living. But you also know what’s going to happen if you put a record — they’re going to compare it to Mick,” Chris published a letter. written in Independent.
It’s not a good comparison, but Chris is thankful for a few things. She is grateful that she has the freedom to do whatever she wants in her career. He doesn’t need to go out day in and day out to sing Rolling Stones songs.
“The Rolling Stones are a brand and they stick with it. I’ve always had more freedom and could do whatever I wanted. Whereas as Mick goes out to the crowd, they want him to sing ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash ,” Chris explained. “That way, fame is double-edged because it can isolate you from reality. You don’t go to your parents for a cup of tea – you can, but you have a lot of important things to do. Our parents were totally into us but I spent more time with mom and dad than Mick.”

Chris Jagger went down a different path from Mick Jagger
Instead of going to college, Chris traveled to India to learn to sing. “I made an album in the early seventies, but punk washed it all away and I fell musically between rock and roll and punk rock,” Chris wrote. He tried hard not to be the messy brother of a rockstar. He was always on his best behavior. However, when he started his career, it was hard to compete with “superstar groups”.
“I find it annoying that superstar groups have made so much money while so many people can’t even make a living. It all depends on throwing the dice,” he said. While he always works on his music, Chris has also become a jack of all trades. He acted, painted, decorated, contributed articles to major newspapers, appeared as a radio host, and even drove a taxi for a time when he was in his thirties.
When people recognized his name, they asked him why his brother was not supporting him. Chris says it’s not Mick’s job to support him though. “Somehow people expect you to be very rich just because you belong to him,” he explained.
