Sir Mick Jagger can't get no career satisfaction

Rolling Stones singer Sir Mick Jagger said he finds his music career "intellectually undemanding" and his original job choice of being a teacher might have been a "gratifying" alternative.

The veteran rocker also said he considered a career as a dancer but was put off by the prospect of "so many injuries".

Jagger, who was still a student at the London School of Economics when the Stones were starting out, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "A schoolteacher would have been very gratifying, I'm sure.

"There are millions of things you would have loved to have done, a politician, a journalist... I thought of being a journalist once.

"All these things you think of when you're a teenager, you can think, well, I would have liked to have done that but that's completely pointless but I don't feel frustrated for a lack of control at all and I'm very pleased with what I've done.

"Everyone wants to have done more things in their lives. It is a slightly intellectually undemanding thing to do, being a rock singer, but, you know, you make the best of it."

Sir Mick Jagger has confirmed there will be Rolling Stones gigs before next summer, and possibly even this year.

Following weeks of speculation that the group would play live gigs in London and New York, Sir Mick confirmed the rumours on BBC Radio 2 saying:

"I'm sure there's going to be something on Facebook very soon about the tour. It's not going to be a long tour, the first bit anyway ...
