As a teenager, Mick Jagger attended Wentworth Primary School in Dartford alongside Keith Richards. He would eventually move on to the Dartford Grammar School for a time until he was accepted into the London School of Economics (per Trade School).

During his stint as an economics major, Jagger’s academic performance defaulted at a C average. Despite a seemingly inherent momentum for scholastic excellence and a curriculum that consisted of just a few business courses, his sights were set on making music with his bandmates. He ultimately started skipping classes in true rock ‘n’ roll fashion until his untimely departure from the realm of education.

“My father was furious with me,” the frontman shared. “But I really didn’t like being at college. It wasn’t like it was Oxford, and it had been the most wonderful time of my life. It was really a dull, boring course I was stuck on” (via Rule Forty Two).

The rest, as we say, is rock ‘n’ roll history.
