Unusual moments in an unusual British prime minister's career

Boyhood idol of Tony Blair's long-haired days: Mick Jagger.

Ugly Rumours: the rock band in which Blair sang and played guitar while at Oxford University.

Toughest parenting moment: His oldest son Euan's arrest after he threw up in Leicester Square following a drinking binge celebrating the end of school exams in 2000.

Proudest parenting moment: Blair's wife, Cherie, gives birth on May 20, 2000 to Leo - the first baby born to a serving prime ministerial couple since the mid-19th century.

Primal minister: On vacation in Mexico, Blair and Cherie joined in a Mayan rebirth ceremony at Temazcal, a steam bath in a brick pyramid in August 2001. Wearing swimsuits, they reportedly smeared each other with melon, papaya and mud before letting out primal screams.

Celebrity vacation spots: Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb's Miami Beach mansion; singer Cliff Richard's Barbados villa; former Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi's 73-room Sardinian estate; French tycoon Alain Dominique Perrin's 15th-century chateau in southwest France.

Her trainer: Carole Caplin, Cherie Blair's "lifestyle guru," had her 10 Downing St. pass removed in November 2003 following complaints that the former topless model had unrestricted access to the prime minister's official residence.
