Don’t call him “sir,” but not because he wouldn’t like you to. Although he’s an undisputed member of rock & roll royalty, Mick Jagger has never been given his country’s highest honor, being made a knight of the Order of the British Empire, like his musical contemporaries — the Beatles and Elton John — have been. Despite the snub, the strutting 58-year-old singer has still got what it takes to set a room on fire, as he did Thursday night at a tiny club in Los Angeles, reports Reuters. Jagger performed songs from his fourth solo album, “Goddess in the Doorway,” which will be released next week. At the only show to promote the album, avid fans included Billy Crudup, David Spade, Heath Ledger, Chris Robinson, Kate Hudson and Meg Ryan. A documentary chronicling the life of one of the century’s most undeniably colorful people, called “Being Mick,” will air on Thanksgiving Day on ABC.
