Biography

(May 20, 2011 – present)

SuperHeavy www.superheavy.com is a supergroup consisting of Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart, Joss Stone, Damian Marley, and A.R. Rahman. Stone and Stewart had collaborated in the past with Jagger.

The band’s formation was announced on May 20, 2011. The Miracle Worker Songfacts reports that the band’s name came about after Damian Marley started riffing the term “SuperHeavy,” inspired by Muhammad Ali being the Super Heavyweight champion of the world, and the phrase became the band’s catchphrase. “It was Mick who said, ‘Why don’t we call it SuperHeavy?”, recalled Stewart, “We all thought about it for ages and then it sort of stuck.”

Jagger said of the band, “We wanted a convergence of different musical styles… We were always overlapping styles, but they were nevertheless separate.”
