Mick Jagger was the target of an assassination bid by the Hells Angels

Mick JaggerRolling Stones star Mick Jagger was the target the of an assassination bid by the Hells Angels, the FBI has said.

A former special agent has revealed the 64-year-old rocker was targeted after a row with the biker gang over their handling of security at a tragic concert.

The 'Start Me Up' star vowed to never to use Hells Angels members as bouncers again following the stabbing  of an 18-year-old fan at a performance at Altamont Speedway, California in 1969.

The furious gang - whose members traditionally ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles - vowed to kill him at his Hamptopns holiday home.

Ex FBI agent Mark Young said they planned the attack by sea so they could get in from the garden and avoid security.

But their boat was hit by a storm and all of the men were thrown overboard. All survived.

Mick was never made aware of the bid.
