Big Grin Sir Mick! Jagger knighted today!

Karis is his daughter by actress Marsha Hunt. Elizabeth is his oldest child by Jeri Hall. He has 3 more kids by Hall, and another daughter by Bianca. Jagger's mother, Eva, died last year at age 88. (so judging by his parents we can look forward to a long life for Mick!)

Keith Richards has called Mick a 'sellout' for accepting the award. Jagger calls Richards a 'bawling little kid with no ice cream cone' for his comments.

Jagger defied tradition by wearing a leather jacket instead of a top hat and tails to the ceremony. Rock and roll!

Sir Michael Phillip Jagger

Arise 'Sir Mick'; Rolling Stone Jagger Knighted
Fri Dec 12, 8:32 AM ET

LONDON (Reuters) - Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger, once a scourge of the British establishment, received its ultimate accolade on Friday when he was knighted by heir to the throne Prince Charles in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
"It was all rather wonderfully formal," the 60-year-old rock n'roll lothario told reporters after the ceremony in which Charles tapped him lightly on each shoulder with a sword.

Asked if he believed that he deserved the top British establishment accolade, the grinning Jagger replied: "Yeah."

The man who has fronted the legendary rock group for the past four decades, rejected suggestions that he had sold out to the establishment against which he had railed for so long.

"I don't really think the establishment as we knew it exists any more," he said with a slight toss of the head.

But showing at least a residue of rebellion, Jagger shunned the traditional top hat and tails, opting for a long black leather coat, purple scarf and sports shoes.

He took along his 92-year-old father Joe and two of his daughters to share the occasion.

Jagger hit out at fellow Stone Keith Richards (news) who claimed he was betraying the band's principles by accepting the honor.

"It is a bit like a bawling child who hasn't got an ice cream," he said, declining further comment.

The craggy-faced Richards, whose drug and drink fueled lifestyle is the stuff of legend, told Uncut music magazine he did not want to share a stage with a knight.

"I don't want to step out on stage with someone wearing a coronet and sporting the old ermine," he complained.

The award puts Jagger on a ceremonial par with pop knights Sir Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney.

I'm kind of with Keith on this one.

But hey, congrats Mick.
