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. —<email@example.com>
This is a nice documentary but way to short. After all this is about a band that has been making music and performing for 50 years. The focus seemed to be 1969 to 1976 with some early information thrown in. I was hoping the Stones entire career would be incorporated in this film. The 1978 and 1981 tours should definitely deserved more film time. Those were great tours. The 1972 tour was ground breaking. 1969 was infamous but very entertaining. 1975 was a great show. What about after 1981? The band went on a hiatus until 1989 when they went back on tour. Why not touch on that? There were tours after that 1994/1998/2002/2005 that could have been included. An extra hour or so would have been nice. The audio commentary by the band was very effective. It's only rock and roll but I like it.
