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>

Very good initially but ultimated disappoints
24 September 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The film's very good in representing the bands early and mid term journey with all it's successes, failures, drugs, drink etc with candid interviews and good musical snippets. The footage is great but my biggest disappointment with the film is that basically very little is mentioned of the bands musical output post Let It Bleed. Sticky Fingers get a brief snippet, Exile on Main Street has a little more but post that almost nothing. A brief interlude of 'Angie' and how great Ronnie Wood has fit into the band - and he sure has if only they'd give him a bit more freedom to work with. But, and it's a big but, nothing - a great big zilch of their musical output through the late 70's and beyond, much of which was/has been critically underwhelming.

It would also have been nice to see the involvement with the band of Ian 'Stu' Stewart and Bobby Keys recognised.

In short, the film's an unpolished diamond, well worth a look to the Stones fan
