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 <>

Still strolling along
27 November 2012 | by (Saffron Walden, UK) – See all my reviews

Over the years, the Rolling Stones have transformed from counter-cultural icons, and revolutionary music makers, into institutionalised pensioners, the "strolling bones" as the wags call them, always on tour but with nothing new to say. This documentary charts their first 20 years (though the band are still performing after 50); but it's fairly soft and uninformative material, a collage of old pictures and film, a little bit of concert footage, and a few throwaway comments from the band. There's a fair old Stones industry these days, but another recent documentary, about the making of their legendary album 'Exile on Main Street', was more insightful than this, which is more celebratory in tone. If you're a Stones fanatic, you'll learn little new; but even if you don't, and want to learn more about them, there are probably better places to start.
