"The Rolling Stones: Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965" features footage of the Stones' tour of the Emerald Isle. There's footage of the guys sitting around talking to each other, but it goes without saying that the best part is the music. One thing that I noticed was the moderate security. The Stones perform in a music hall and there are almost no cops. It would be hard to imagine any world-famous group doing that nowadays. Another marker of the past is that Mick's face looks more natural (that is, before he had it done, giving him a gaunt look).
One thing that I wondered while watching "Charlie Is My Darling" is how many Ireland and Northern Ireland residents had the opportunity to see the Rolling Stones. The group only performed in Dublin and Belfast during their second Irish tour in 1965, so did people from Limerick, Derry, etc, have the chance to travel to Dublin and Belfast? Whatever the case, this is a very fun documentary. The Stones will live forever!
