Ever heard of Chris Jagger? Sometimes we forget that iconic rockers are people with families and siblings — and apparently so do the rockers themselves. It may have taken a couple of decades, but late last month, Mick joined his little bro (aged 59) on stage for a cover of the Stones’ “Dead Flowers.” Via AP:
Little known musician Chris Jagger had been saying for years that his famous brother Mick would one day join him on stage. When it finally happened, the audience numbered about 40.
Mick Jagger, 63, had been visiting his former wife Jerry and their children in nearby Richmond when he slipped into the pub wearing a purple sweater and joined Chris’s Atcha! blues band.
The brother-bonding occurred at the Bull’s Head, a southwest London pub, and only went down ’cause Chris talked him into it, saying, “”At first he didn’t really want to do it, but I said to him: ‘You’ve got a tour coming up. I think you need the practice.'” That Mick, always out of time. Jagger teasing aside, there’s something sorta adorable about seeing the brothers singing together, so we’ll leave you with the subpar footage and a moment to get sentimental. (Just this once.)
