Hard working rocker Mick Jagger

Sir Mick Jagger refuses to party all the time because he enjoys focusing on work

Sir Mick Jagger limits his fun.

The 66-year-old Rolling Stones singer - renowned for his hellraising behavior in his youth - makes sure he gets the balance between work and enjoyment right in his life, but still indulges his wild side on occasions.

He said: "You can't give into temptation all your life, otherwise you'd have no through line; you'd never get anything finished. But it's absolutely no fun at all unless you give into temptation some of your life. If you never do, you're really boring and dull."

Jagger - who has seven children by four different women - also says spending a lot of time in hotels has given him the inspiration to make his homes colourful and exciting.

He added to Britain's Vogue magazine: "Hotel life has influenced my decorative tastes quite negatively. Because you say, 'Right, I don't want any brown or beige.' Because most hotels go in for neutral colours - they don't want to offend anybody."

The Rolling Stones

The veteran band, featuring original members singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, celebrates 50 years since its formation in London by playing its hits including Jumpin' Jack Flash and Brown Sugar.
