-He remains in the shade of his elder brother, this caused his music career to hardly make a move; despite his many contributions to being a singer, musician, songwriter, alot of journalists often compare him(usually in a very unfavorable light) to his older brother Mick instead of accepting that Christoper Jagger and Mick Jagger have 2 different styles of music

-After studying in dramatic art, this allowed Jagger to work in various fields, such as theatre, cinema, clothing design and decoration

-In the 1970s, he had a project for recording with The Flying Burrito Brothers, but it stopped. In the 1980s, he helped on 2 of The Rolling Stones albums, specifically Dirty Work(1986) and Steel Wheels(1989)

-Also has worked as a journalist for The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Mail on Sunday, The Independent on Sunday and Rolling Stone.
-Chris and partner Pat Townshend created a guitar company in the mid 1980s. Chris designed a magnesium alloy guitar called The Staccato. The guitar featured a bridge and neck system that could be switched out. The user could switch between a bass neck for 6 string neck.

-A prototype bass was built in Norfolk England in 1983 and a business was started. The partners included Pat Townshend, Bill Wyman, Chris and Mick Jagger. This comapny went under in 1987. During KISS' Crazy Nights tour, Gene Simmons can be seen playing a Staccato guitar.
