Mick Jagger Reveals Backup Plan of Being a Teacher

Mick Jagger recently did an interview with BBC Radio where he discussed his backup plans in case being a rock star didn't work out.

He told the radio show that his original plan was to be a school teacher. He also suggested that if he took that path instead, he would still be happy.

Jagger said being a musician hasn't been challenging enough for him intellectually, and teaching would have been "gratifying." He also admitted thinking about being a politician or journalist when he was a teen.

But instead of being a teacher, Jagger went on to become a rock star in the Rolling Stones. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004. Rolling Stone magazine ranked them No. 4 on the '100 Greatest Artists of All Time' list and in 2008, Billboard magazine listed them as No. 10 on their 'Billboard Hot 110 All-Time Top Artists' chart.

They just celebrated their 50th anniversary in the music business. To celebrate, the band is having a series of concerts, including their first appearance at Glastonbury festival this weekend.
