Definitely not. He's already in with The Stones, anyhow -- to put it incredibly bluntly, that's the only music he's done that's mattered.

okay, someone explain...michael flipping jackson IS deserving of a spot in the RnR hall of fame, but mick jagger? not so much...please, someone just shoot me now...

Except for a couple good songs ("Old Habits Die Hard," "Visions of Paradise"), Jagger's solo career has been dire. Keith Richard's solo music is better! Still, both only deserve to be in the Hall as part of The Rolling Stones.

I am surprised he has been previously considered for the hall as a solo artist. In my mind he is just like steve perry and lou gramm.

Of course he should be. Even though I don't really like him, I recognize that historically he is incredibly important. The Hall of Fame is incredibly slow; maybe we can do this while he is still alive!?

I don't see the point of inducting Mick Jagger as a solo artist because his solo career didnit have as big an impact as his work with the Stones

Posted by Aaron O'Donnell on Friday, 07.3.09 @ 09:22am

Agreed, most of Jagger's solo work is a bit forgettalbe and really lacks influence.

Posted by Dude Man on Friday, 07.3.09 @ 09:29am

Why would Mick Jagger be inducted solo if say, someone like John Fogerty isn't even in solo. (I'm not saying Fogerty should be in solo but Mick Jagger's solo accomplishments isn't even half of Fogerty's)

Although maybe I'm being biased. Who knows.

Mick Jagger deserves it! Think of all the stuff he did

Posted by ME123 on Friday, 07.3.09 @ 11:43am

It doesn't matter how much he did during his solo career. His solo career lacks influence and innovation.

Posted by Dude Man on Friday, 07.3.09 @ 11:51am

I had to stop and think about what he ever did as a solo act.

Posted by Gitarzan on Friday, 07.3.09 @ 12:16pm

I personally cannot think of anything that Mick did without Keith and the rest of the Stones standing besides him.

How can you all question Mick Jagger? The man's a genius

Posted by River on Friday, 07.3.09 @ 14:06pm

If you think Jagger's solo career has been anything more than mediocre, then you should maybe get out more. History is going to look upon him as the frontman for the Stones...and that's about it...unless you live in some sort of parallel universe we don't know about.

At least Ringo had a couple of hits...!!!

Posted by Gitarzan on Friday, 07.3.09 @ 14:57pm

"History is going to look upon him as the frontman for the Stones...and that's about it"

Wrong. It'll remember him for being the frontman for the Stones AND the father of probably hundreds of children he doesn't know about.

But, yeah, I really don't have a clue what Mick did musically beyond the Stones...

I think he released one or two albums. Trouble is, nobody realized he released any albums..

Ummm... Jagger has a GREAT solo album: "She's The Boss" there is not a bad song on it. It's so good, you'll think you are hearing the Stones. The song "She's The Boss" is darn good, "Just Another Night" was a huge hit, "Lucky In Love" a great memorable song, my favorite on the CD.

Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend, and Herbie Hancock are in the mix.

Before you say, its just one good CD -- How many CDs does HOF St. Louisian Bob Cuban have out?

Seems to me like people mouthing off here that have not delved into Mick's solo career.

"She's The Boss" - check it out, it really rocks and demonstrates how Mick can do whatever he pleases when it comes to Rock n Roll. ANY musician would be hugely proud to be in credits. Mick was one of the most influentual lead singers of his time, and is still going so string people joke about it. With or without Keith "wanna be guitar-god" Richards, Mick is a rock n roll superstar.

Maybe the problem with his solo career IS the fact that people think they're hearing the Stones...who've already been inducted.

Posted by Gitarzan on Wednesday, 01.6.10 @ 17:54pm

Mick Jagger's solo career has been considered already? Are they going to start inducting all of the Stones solo now when they're done with inducting all of the Beatles solo or something (Only Ringo's left after all)?

JUST WONDERING????? where is MICK TAYLOR.. ???????????I don't see him on the LIST?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????/

"Before you say, its just one good CD -- How many CDs does HOF St. Louisian Bob Cuban have out?"

First of all, it's Kuban, not Cuban. Second of all, he's in the Hall's exhibit on one-hit wonders, he was not inducted into the RRHOF as a performer.


How mature of you.

Why is this site giving Mick Jagger's solo career 8% induction chances but Keith Richards solo career gets 30% induction chances?

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 11.16.11 @ 10:22am

mick jagger does deserve to be in the rock n roll hall of fame , hes one of the best songwriters of alltime along with paul mccartney , he has a very good voice compassing many genres mainly rock n roll and RnB , hes still going strong even since da 1960s beatles aint lasted this long

Posted by peter charlie 1991 on Wednesday, 01.18.12 @ 15:30pm

He's already in with the Stones.
