Jagger and Hall Have Baby Boy

December 10, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Mick Jagger reached another milestone early Tuesday -- the 54-year-old rocker once again became a father.

Jerry Hall, Jagger's wife, gave birth to Gabriel Luke Beauregard Jagger at 12:30 a.m. in London on Dec. 9. The boy weighed in at eight pounds, three ounces.

Jagger, who is currently on tour in America with the Rolling Stones, isn't expected to see his new son until the band wraps up this leg of the "Bridges to Babylon" tour on Friday in St. Louis.

Gabriel is the sixth child for Jagger, his fourth with Hall. Jagger has two other daughters: one with ex-wife Bianca Jagger, the other with singer/actress Marsha Hunt

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
