Mick Jagger Reflects On His Career Choice

(Classic Rock) Mick Jagger is proud of his achievements as frontman of the Rolling Stones but he admits to sometimes wishing he'd followed another path. He says his job is "undemanding" when compared to being a teacher, politician or journalist.

Ahead of the Stones' long-awaited headline slot at Glastonbury this weekend, Jagger told the BBC: "I'm sure everyone wishes they'd tried to have been… I'd have been a dancer, if anything.

"A schoolteacher would have been very gratifying, I'm sure. There's millions of things you would loved to have done – politician, journalist; I thought of being a journalist once."

But he says he doesn't suffer any regret. "You could think, 'Well, I would have liked to have done that,' but that's completely pointless. Everyone wants to have done more things in their lives.

"I don't feel frustrated for lack of control, and I'm very pleased with what I've done." more on this story
