You can't always get what you want?

You can if you're Mick Jagger, according to a new book by Christopher Andersen called Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger.

With the possible exception of Angelina Jolie, the one woman the book claims got away, Jagger allegedly managed to cut quite a swath through the population and is rumoured to have slept with 4,000 women. Gee, who's counting?

Miss Jolie, meanwhile, kept a step ahead of Jagger; they met when she had a role in one of the band's videos in the late '90s, a time when she was married to Jonny Lee Miller.

Jolie, according to the book, ignored Jagger's phone calls and all other advances, though they continued for some time, reducing him to leaving begging messages and turning him into emotional jelly in the process. Only the hardest of heart could read this part of the book without weeping with laughter.

Biggest 'reveal' so far from Andersen's book is the shopworn bit of news that Jagger and David Bowie were "sexually obsessed with each other." It's interesting to note that even a switch from women to men did not alter Jagger's interest in people who look like horses. Bowie, ex-wife Jerry Hall and current lover L'Wren Scott are all unusually equine in appearance.

Just an observation, Dobbin, so don't get your knickers in a twist.

The book continues with lots more salacious detail, including potentially damaging bits of information about Jagger's involvement with Carla Bruni in the days before she reinvented herself as Mrs. President Of France, the country where cheese and Jerry Lewis are revered.

If you believe Anderson, Jagger thought nothing of leaving his partner, Jerry Hall, right after she gave birth to one or another of their children together to spend time with Bruni, an affair that went on for some time and is alleged to have contributed to the end of the Hall and Jagger marriage.

Riveting though it may be to learn the apparent details of Jagger's conquests, it does seem a cruel twist of fate that not one of those 4,000 lovers was the same height or shorter than Jagger. He never got to pick on someone his own size, poor little dickens. Tragic, really.
