LONDON (AP) Mick Jagger thinks his original career plan to become a school teacher might have provided plenty of satisfaction.
The Rolling Stones frontman told BBC Radio Friday that his music career has not been challenging intellectually and that teaching might have been "gratifying" instead. He also said he had considered becoming a politician or a journalist when he was a teen.
Instead he has become one of the most successful rock singers in history.
Despite his interest in other careers, Jagger says he's "very pleased" with how things have turned out.
The band is marking its 50th year together with a series of concerts that will also include a first ever appearance at the Glastonbury festival this weekend and a return in July to Hyde Park in central London.
