Jagger named most stylish rock star

Mick Jagger has been named the most stylish rock star of all time by lifestyle website Complex.

He leads their top 50 list ahead of Prince, David Bowie, Kurt Cobain, Sid Vicious and Keith Richards.

Complex say of Jagger: “Hands-down one of the best-dressed musicians of all-time, he definitely set the bar for flamboyant frontmen. From his crazy stage antics to his bad boy edge, his style reflected his personality perfectly: it was something that needed to be tamed, but functioned best when it was wild.

“Even today, he wears silk scarves and suits with more rakish appeal than most men – and he’s pushing 70.”

John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis, David Byrne and Alice Cooper make the top 20 while, further down the list, Slash, Keith Moon, Lemmy, Johnny Rotten, Freddie Mercury, Billy Gibbons and Axl Rose appear.

Meanwhile, Jagger’s former bandmate Bill Wyman says the best thing about his “short and sweet” guest spots with the Stones last year was having his three teenage daughters see him do it.

The 76-year-old bassist tells the Independent: “It was the first time they’d seen me play with the Stones. They’d been to Stones shows before but never seen me on stage with them, so that was kind of nice. I did get some quite rousing applause when I went on.”
