(Gibson) Mick Jagger has done it all, from fronting the most celebrated rock band on the planet, The Rolling Stones, to forming a "SuperHeavy" rock supergroup. When it comes to the archetypical frontman, Jagger is certainly it. Charisma, commanding vocals, magnetism it's all there. In the following choice quotes, Sir Jagger talks about SuperHeavy, getting knighted by Prince Charles and loving Facebook.

On getting knighted by Prince Charles, as reported to the BBC in 2003: "I've met [Prince Charles] quite a few times and we've had some nice chats. I don't get nervous, it's more exhilaration. It's very nice to have honors given to you as long as you don't take it all too seriously."

On Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards' comments that Jagger's decision to accept a "paltry honor" was "ludicrous," as reported to the BBC in 2003:"I think he would probably like to get the same honor himself. It's like being given an ice cream one gets one and they all want one. It's nothing new. Keith likes to make a fuss." More Mickisms here
