Review

The concluding part of this celebratory film about the Rolling Stones takes us through the post-Brian Jones years, starting with the stabbing of an audience member at Altamont. There followed a year’s tax exile when the band descended into what Jagger calls their hedonistic period: “We didn’t just tour – it was a binge round America.”

But despite the drugs, chaos and changing line-up, the Stones survived to become a rock phenomenon. “Cats have nine lives and we seem to have got through about 20 – I don’t know how we do it,” says Ronnie Wood.

Summary

Concluding part of Brett Morgen's documentary charting the 50-year career of the rock band, providing an insight into their journey from blues-obsessed teenagers in the early 1960s to the stadium-fillers of the present day. The film features historical footage, much of it widely unseen, and interviews with band members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, as well as former Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.
