DOCUMENTARY DOUBLE FEATURE: THE ROLLING STONES



With The Stones ending their mini-anniversary tour, I thought it would be appropriate to post a couple of legendary documentaries. Both feature Mick Taylor, who made guest appearances at several of the concerts over the last month. The first is Gimme Shelter, and it's pretty intense. We showed it at the very first 12 Hour Film Festival a few years ago, and it left the crowd speechless. The second is the legendary unreleased Robert Frank film C**ksucker Blues, a film so scandalous that even The Stones decided they couldn't release it. Its reputation is greater than the final film, but it gives a great idea of how decadent the 72 tour of America was.

Enjoy!
