Storyline

A mostly chronological look at the Rolling Stones with archive footage and recent off-camera commentary by Jagger, Richards, Watts, Wyman, Taylor, and Wood. Topics include virtually instant success (and fans' dangerous antics), becoming songwriters, press coverage as the anti-Beatles, Richards and Jagger's drug arrest and trial, Brian Jones' decline and death, fleeing the tax man to the south of France, a U.S. tour and the Altamont disaster, trading the bad boys image for being fun onstage when Wood replaces Taylor,and Richards kicking smack: "The band comes first." The six also talk about what makes them a great rock and roll band. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Coffee Table Audio-Video Book
14 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A seemingly inconclusive attempt at summarizing some things that are obvious about the Stones and some things that remain elusive. This thing emerges as perhaps one of those heavy magazine tributes or could possibly be called a coffee table audio-video book.

Die hard fans will try desperately to find a thing or two they didn't know or see a clip or two they haven't seen, but there is precious little here other than vaguely interesting insights and less than brilliant footage. Of course, "The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World", deserves any kind of tribute. Especially one that has full production in the hands of the band itself.

However, one could say that total control is not the best way to go here. As is apparent many times, they were so involved and close to it all that they really didn't have time to absorb much of what was going on as they were being elevated and revered year after year. Almost every band member mentions oblivious (or a synonym) as an adjective to it all.

This could well be an introduction for new fans or a mild, emotional, and superficial tribute for stalwarts. One thing we have learned in modern times is that these type of things are only great when given hours of running time where some of the vintage concert clips and appearances are really only truly effective if you let the songs play out. Sadly, that does not even happen once here. That is what would truly benefit newbies and boomer fans. Some might also say, after all......"I know it's only Rock n Roll, but...".
