40 Years Ago: Mick Marries Bianca in Chaotic St Tropez Ceremony

This week, 40 years ago, Mick Jagger wed Bianca Pérez-Mora Macias at the town hall in the French Mediterranean town of St Tropez. About 100 cameramen and journalists packed the room to witness the event prompting Jagger to announce everyone must go because he did not wish to get married in a "goldfish bowl".

Tant pis!

The police said the journalists had every right to be there. As thanks, some journalists came to blows with the police. Nevertheless, a somewhat civil civil ceremony ensued, followed by a religious ceremony and the new first couple of rock n roll made it official to songs from the soundtrack of Love Story.(Yes, that would have been the bride's request).

The marriage lasted eight years and produced one daughter, Jade.
