Mick Jagger's Basketball Team Photo (1961)

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met for the first time at Wentworth Primary School in Dartford in 1951.  "I distinctly remember the first conversation I had with Keith," said Jagger. "I asked him what he wanted to do when he grew up.  He said he wanted to be like Roy Rogers and play guitar." Richards moved and the two lost touch. Jagger attended Dartford Grammar School and excelled in both academics and sports.  His father Joe Jagger said, "He was excellent at basketball and cricket, but he didn't want to be tied down to all of the practice."
