Their conversations are utterly and predictably incomprehensible.
Extremely amusing nonetheless!

Muddy Waters & The Stones: Please Don't Go, 1981

On 22 November 1981, in the middle of their mammoth American tour, the Rolling Stones arrived in Chicago prior to playing 3 nights at the Rosemont Horizon. Long influenced by the Chicago blues, the band paid a visit to Muddy Waters' club the Checkerboard Lounge to see the legendary bluesman perform.http://smarturl.it/Muddystoneslpdvdcd It didn't take long before Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Ian Stewart were joining in on stage and later Buddy Guy and Lefty Dizz also played their part. It was a unique occasion that was fortunately captured on camera. Now, restored from the original footage and with sound mixed and mastered by Bob Clearmountain, this amazing blues night is being made available in an official release for the first time.

Sympathy for the Devil is also the title of a producer's edit of a 1968 film by Jean-Luc Godard whose own original version is called One Plus One. The film, a depiction of the late 1960s American counterculture, also featured the Rolling Stones in the process of recording the song in the studio. On the filming, Jagger said in Rolling Stone: "... [it was] very fortuitous, because Godard wanted to do a film of us in the studio. I mean, it would never happen now, to get someone as interesting as Godard. And stuffy. We just happened to be recording that song. We could have been recording 'My Obsession.' But it was 'Sympathy for the Devil,' and it became the track that we used

Rolling Stones: Stones in Exile Trailer

This is the trailer for the forthcoming Rolling Stones documentary - Stones in Exile. Due out on DVD on 14th June in Europe, and 22nd June in the States.

In the spring of 1971 the Rolling Stones departed the UK to take up residence in France as tax exiles. Keith Richards settled at a villa called Nellc?te in Villefranche-sur-Mer and this became the venue for the recording of much of the bands masterpiece Exile On Main Street. Stones In Exile tells the story in the bands own words and through extensive archive footage of their time away from England and the creation of this extraordinary double album, which many regard as the Rolling Stones finest achievement.

Bonus Features:

Extensive additional footage including interviews with all the band members, footage from Cocksucker Blues and Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts returning to Olympic Studios and Jaggers country house Stargroves where a lot of the early work on the album was done.

This DVD release will be followed by the release of a full concert peformance from the Ladies & Gentlemen tour in the Autumn.
