I am new to this forum and i have some question about the real meaning of some words in this article, considering its unique context.
the article is as follow:
The barometer of his time, Jagger yet resisted the temptation to branch out from the Rolling Stones into too many uncharted areas. An appearance in the movie Ned Kelly revealed that he was unable to come up with a convincing Australian/Irish accent. The experiment was not repeated. Jagger was even less concerned about expressing himself in a literary form, unlike others of his generation. The most articulate of the Rolling Stones has frankly admitted that he could not even remember sufficient details of his life to pen a ghosted biography.
there are some questions regarding some words in the passage
1. what is the real meaning of "barometer" in the first sentence? Indicator
2. what does it mean by "uncharted area"in the 2nd sencence? unknown
3. what is a "ghosted biography"? the basics to be embellished by a ghost writer whose name will not be published
hopefully someone can help me here
thanks in advance for the help
