Dear Commons Community,
The Associated Press is reporting that during an interview Mick Jagger commented that his original career plan to become a school teacher might have provided plenty of satisfaction. The Rolling Stones lead singer told BBC Radio Friday that his music career has not been challenging intellectually and that teaching might have been “gratifying” instead. He also said he had considered becoming a politician or a journalist when he was a teen. Instead he has become one of the most successful rock singers in history. Despite his interest in other careers, Jagger says he’s “very pleased” with how things have turned out.
