Storyline

Fact-based story about the drug-addled and sordid life of The Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones. Unfortunately the story moves so quickly into the sensationalized decadence and drug-induced state of Jones, that the unknowing viewer has to wonder why anyone would care. There are only a few framing sequences with members of The Stones, particularly Keith Richards, that show they had a great respect for him and tried to bring him back into the band as he drifted away. Mixed into the destruction of Jones is a common builder, Frank Thorogood, who is given the unenviable task of trying to please Jones by rebuilding his estate and to watch him per Jones' manager's instructions. Thorogood's life is so far removed from all of the sex and drugs that he sees, that he envies and desires the tawdry life as well, but never quite fits in. Unfortunately, at least according to this film and according to a supposed death bed confessional of Thorogood in 1993, it led to Thorogood's murder of Jones in a...

Did You Know?

Goofs

A scene dated 1959 shows a Robert Johnson album with his photograph on the cover. This is doubly impossible. No Robert Johnson albums existed anywhere until 1961, and it wasn't until about 1969 that any photograph of him at all had been discovered. See more »

Quotes

Brian Jones: Thanks for making a marytr of me. If it wasn't for you I'd still be alive and, no one would care.
Tom Keylock: You know that isn't true. It was you screwing with Frank's head what did it, because you had nothing better to do. But you did know her...
Brian Jones: Anita.
Tom Keylock: You just had to go and screw it up, didn't ya? Your problem is, you were never happy - even Frank was happy.
Brian Jones: You're wrong you know Tom. I was happy, somewhere in the middle there. The thing with happiness was... It was boring.

Great insight to the latter life of the star who shone then shamed but could have dwelt a bit more on his skills as a groundbreaking musician in the latter 60's years
4 January 2006 | by jason-turnbullSee all my reviews

In retrospect a musician who did not compose the songs for which he/she is famous would not ordinarily be remembered 40 years after. However, if the musician started the greatest rock n roll band in the world, lived the life of their best songs and contributed immensely to the music of the sixties, mastering many musical instruments and styles as well as promoting them, they are not just an ordinary musician. Although the film documents Brian's fascination with the Blues in his early years and living a decadent jaded life in his later years it fails to impress on the uninitiated the sparkle of sitars, early synth work, recorders, etc, etc that Brian enhanced the pop charts with on his journey through the sixties. None of the original Rolling Stones songs are present and although the covers, etc, represent the decade they do not adequately represent Brian's gift to music. I believe this is copyright related but actually sums up the frustrations of his life that he was not allowed to share composing credits, etc and was basically conned out of ownership of the band in the process. Brian Jones's death was a tragedy but his life was marred by controversy balanced against fine work as a musician which should be remembered most and probably is a bit by the end of the film, though not as much as I would have liked to see.
