Yungblud Recalls Mick Jagger’s Reaction To His Music


Yungblud recently joined an interview with NME and recalled the time he hung out with the Rolling Stones icon Mick Jagger and his reaction to his music.

As a young musician, Yungblud has received significant attention from the first moment he stepped into the music scene. He stood out with his wild mannerism and outstanding style, blends rock, punk, and hip-hop. The singer managed to bring a unique approach to those genres and won many fans’ hearts with his authentic presence. His songs have addressed several topics, like sexuality, individualism, and mental health.

The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger also didn’t remain indifferent to the massive influence of Yungblud in contemporary music. During an appearance on Swedish radio station P4 a few months ago, Jagger said Yungblud adds exciting elements to rock and roll with his energetic style. For Jagger, it indeed refers to what the genre needs these days.

In a recent interview, Yungblud talked about meeting Mick Jagger for the first time in the band’s Liverpool gig. He was going to play in Dublin, yet he would pass Liverpool on his way. Thus, he asked someone on his team to reach out to the Stones. They let him in, so he had a chance to hang out with Mick Jagger. Yungblud said Jagger acted according to his reputation. The Stones icon told him that he started listening to his music thanks to his son, Lucas, and liked its energy.

Speaking on Mick Jagger’s reaction to his music, Yungblud stated:

“He talked about me in the press, and he likes it. I was going to play in Dublin and then go over to Donny to see my mom, and I had to pass Liverpool to get to Dublin. I don’t know, playing on the field, I was like, ‘Can someone reach out?’ They got me in, and then we just linked and hung out. I watched the show, and it was amazing.

He was proper how you want Jagger to be: ‘Woah, cool man, yeah.’ I’m making a bit of a Jagger impression all the time, I suppose. He said, ‘My son Lucas turned me onto your music two years ago,’ and he just loved the energy. If you break down rock and roll man in its various forms, that’s what it all comes down to energy and truth of all different ends of the spectrum.”
