Jagger believes this is one of the best times for British music till now, reports thesun.co.uk.

He said: “With British acts doing so well at the Grammys last week it’s proving to be a great period for home-grown talent right now.

“And what is so refreshing are the different styles that have been recognised - Coldplay, Duffy, Adele and Radiohead - and make up an eclectic bunch, proving there’s a lot of fresh British talent out there.

“I like that these acts have paid their dues in the way we had to. There is certainly an upsurge of diverse Brit acts breaking through in the US and overseas - good to see it. Long may it continue.”
