Famous Rock Lips Born Here
Mike Jagger - the Rolling Stones legend entered the world here.
Location: 147 Brent Lane, DA1
Description: I know, it's always been on your mind, where on earth did the lips that belong to the man that fronts one of the UK's longest running and most famous rock bands come into this world?
Well - Mike Jagger - was born at 147 Brent Lane, Dartford on 26th July 1943. Keith Richards came from the same neighbourhood and actually went to the same primary school. But it wasn't until 1961 that they bumped into each other at Dartford railway station, chatted about the 'blues', and created what was to become a global rock phenomenon.
