Mick Jagger and Marsha Hunt met in 1970 when she was approached to pose for a promotional photo for “Honky Tonk Women.” The two had a daughter together, Karis, and both have been closely involved in her life.
“Brown Sugar” is a song by The Rolling Stones. It is the opening track and lead single from the English rock band’s 1971 album Sticky Fingers. Rolling Stone magazine ranked it number 490 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
Though credited, like most of their compositions, to the singer/guitarist pair of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the song was primarily the work of Jagger, who wrote it sometime during the filming of Ned Kelly in 1969. Originally recorded over a three day period at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama from 2–4 December 1969, the song was not released until over a year later due to legal wranglings with the band’s former label, though at the request of guitarist Mick Taylor, they debuted the number live during the infamous concert at Altamont on 6 December. The song was written by Jagger with Marsha Hunt in mind; Hunt was Jagger’s secret girlfriend and mother of his first child Karis.
