TDIM - Mick Jagger was fined for illegal possession of cannabis

If we still haven’t had enough of Mick Jagger, then imagine what would have been the reaction of those who heard the Rolling Stones first appear on the radio. He opened the doors to a new sound that was delivered with passion that worked better when unrestrained, because it highlighted a sexuality that even Elvis Presley was too shy to display. The ones who were engaged with the weirdness of personalities like Bob Dylan, Morrison and others; suddenly, turned in tandem to witness the fresh face.

As much as Jagger’s persona was built for stardom, there is no denying that it came quite naturally to him. “He is not a sex symbol, but a mother image,” said David Bowie, which comes across as a very honest statement, considering that both of them were competitors back then. This day in music, back in 1969, Mick Jagger was made to pay a little over £200 at Marlborough Magistrates Court for illegal possession of cannabis.
