Mick Jagger rose to fame as the vocalist of the legendary English rock band from London, the Rolling Stones. He is regarded by many as one of the most influential rock singers in the genre’s history and notable figures of the countercultural movement. Some of his popular singles were ‘Visions of Paradise’ (2002), ‘As Tears Go By’ (1965), and ‘The Last Time’ (1965), among others.
An accident in his childhood gave Jagger his distinct slur and voice. During the accident, he bit the tip of his tongue and later on affected his speech, which is now what the public hears today.
