Michael Philip Jagger known as Mick , born 26 July 1943 in Dartford, is a British singer-songwriter, musician and actor. Founder and frontman of the Rolling Stones, he is considered one of the most eminent personalities in rock music. In 2008, he was voted 16th on the list of the top 100 best singers.
It took just an eight months holiday in Sicily and Mick Jagger decided to stay longer and release a new album on our beautiful island; his first song was filmed in Noto (Syracuse), ‘Eazy sleazy’ ft Dave Grohl, a track that flew all the way to the United States.
The lyrics, inspired by the lockdown, show how Mr Jagger’s life has changed after moving to Sicily to escape from humdrum everyday life; and so, after four years, here is his first track from the Sicilian stamp.
The leader of the Rolling Stones was photographed in Marzamemi, Agrigento and also in Palermo.
The Sicilian capital could not fail to captivate even a star like him, who has certainly seen a lot of beautiful places in his life…
…but never as much as the Cathedral of Monreale where there is a pipe organ that is unique in Europe: it is the only organ with six keyboards, comprising 10,000 pipes. The console is the world’ s largest of the movable ones.
Mick Jagger asked to see and hear it played and after leaving an autograph on the book of Monreale diocese, ran away before word spread and photographers showed up. Mick Jagger’s experience proves how much we got used to Sicilian natural wonders that can still fascinate and enchant with its uniqueness.
