Watch Mick Jagger from The Rolling Stones Rock Climb in 1959

He appeared on a TV show with his father Joe Jagger

Mick Jagger is the lead vocalist and one of the founding members of the still-active Rolling Stones. His career has spanned over six decades, and he has been described as “one of the most popular and influential frontmen in the history of rock and roll.”

In 1959, at the age of 15, Jagger was filmed rock climbing at High Rocks in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, for a TV show called Seeing Sport. He was recorded on a Scotch Pro Grade E180 by the YouTube user ScottishTeeVee.

Jagger was climbing with his father, Joe Jagger, and the video was addressed in a recent episode of the Howard Stern Show. Jagger senior was a gym teacher, something the rock and roll star says helped instill a love of sport in him.
