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>

Skimming thru the years
23 August 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

This is an abbreviated history of The Rolling Stones in 2 hours. Certainly that's not enough to go into much depth. They go from the start of their success to modern day with very little after the Canadian arrest and release.

They go through using old TV and film clips. It's fun to see some of the old footage. Although they didn't use the footage, they did use snippets of present day interview as narration for the documentary. Again the reminiscence is fairly superficial. They're not digging real deep in these interviews and nothing shocking is shown here. Just good music and good memories.
