This programme contains some strong language.

You want to do a soundcheck, yeah?

0:00:140:00:16

Yeah.

0:00:180:00:19

One, two. One, two. One, two.

0:00:200:00:23

One two, one two, one two. Hello, hello, hello.

0:00:230:00:25

-Hello, hello.

-OK.

0:00:250:00:27

Really good.

0:00:270:00:29

So, before we start, I just want to ask you...

0:00:310:00:34

how's your memory?

0:00:340:00:36

It's pretty good in some places and completely non-existent on others.

0:00:360:00:40

I can remember some things but not other things.

0:00:400:00:42

But then it's written down, usually, somewhere.

0:00:420:00:45

What do I tell you? I can't remember much of it, to be honest!

0:00:450:00:50

Everybody has selective memories, you know, and in the end I just think, "Oh, what the hell!"

0:00:500:00:55

You know, I say that old adage "never let the truth spoil a good story".

0:00:550:00:59

With me, we'll cover a lot of ground and it will just be natural, you know, whatever happens.

0:00:590:01:05

-Have you got a light?

-Yeah, sure.

-Oh, I've got one!

0:01:050:01:07

LIGHTER CLICKS

0:01:070:01:09

Well, I don't know whether it's going to be mystifying,

0:01:090:01:12

and I suppose it's not going to be a glorification either.

0:01:120:01:15

Above all, it should be entertaining, it should be fun,

0:01:150:01:18

because that's what the band was.

0:01:180:01:20

I'm amazed by it myself! I mean it is...

0:01:200:01:23

HE LAUGHS RASPINGLY

0:01:230:01:25

It's almost a fairy story, you know?

0:01:250:01:28

MUSIC STARTS AND STOPS

0:01:280:01:30

Take three.

0:01:300:01:31

Last week, New York City finally got to see and hear the Rolling Stones. We were the last stop

0:01:330:01:37

on a tour that took them into 30 cities in about six weeks.

0:01:370:01:40

It's a gruelling trip.

0:01:400:01:42

I went to Madison Square Gardens to meet Mick Jagger,

0:01:420:01:45

the singer with the group - a fascinating man.

0:01:450:01:47

And he's been described, variously,

0:01:470:01:50

as the supreme sexual object in modern, western culture,

0:01:500:01:53

a compound of menace and energy, a sadomasochistic freak,

0:01:530:01:57

a pussy cat and various other things.

0:01:570:01:59

We have for you tonight, an impression, I think a fairly accurate one,

0:01:590:02:02

of what goes on outside, inside and backstage at Madison Square Gardens

0:02:020:02:07

'when the Rolling Stones are in town.

0:02:070:02:10

'As you look at this, it's, literally, only minutes until he goes outside on to a stage,

0:02:100:02:14

'and exudes solid energy to 20,000 people.

0:02:140:02:17

'Notice how calm we both are, even though he had 20,000 people waiting

0:02:170:02:20

'and I had three listless staff members waiting for a cab for me.'

0:02:200:02:24

Good morning.

0:02:240:02:26

Can you, sort of, tell me my way around in here? I don't know who's who and what's what.

0:02:260:02:31

-Doesn't all this up upset you, all these people...?

-Yeah.

0:02:310:02:33

-It's really crowded for a morning show.

-Yeah.

0:02:330:02:37

-How did you sleep after opening night last night?

-Not very well.

0:02:370:02:41

I don't know if I was supposed to see this, but there was a plate of something going round.

0:02:410:02:44

-People offering little pills.

-Vitamins and salt.

-Vitamins and salt pills?

-Yeah.

0:02:440:02:49

-They tell me...

-A, E, C and salt!

0:02:490:02:53

-Yeah?

-Drink the salt with plenty of water.

-Yeah. Will that help?

0:02:530:02:56

-Do you want to do it all now, Dick?

-We could. Yeah, we can cut.

-Because I've got to get ready.

0:02:560:03:01

How much has your technique and your sense of timing developed over the last five or six years?

0:03:010:03:06

You talk to me like an actor. I don't understand anything about all those things.

0:03:060:03:11

I just go on and do it. I don't know about timing or anything.

0:03:110:03:14

Cos you give me the impression, and I've watched you -

0:03:140:03:17

whether it's conscious or not - of being a very, very shrewd professional performer.

0:03:170:03:21

No... No, it's not true.

0:03:210:03:24

0:10:360:10:39

Let's recap on the Rolling Stones.

0:10:410:10:43

How did you all get together in the first place?

0:10:430:10:46

I think we all met in clubs in London, jazz clubs.

0:10:460:10:49

Actually, I answered an advert for a bass player.

0:10:490:10:52

But the rest of them got together individually in jazz clubs and formed a group.

0:10:520:10:57

-We move on now to Brian.

-Hello.

0:10:570:10:59

How long have you been with the Rolling Stones?

0:10:590:11:01

-Are you one of the original members?

-Yes, one of the original members.

0:11:010:11:04

-What were you doing before you joined?

-Erm...

0:11:040:11:07

Well, just sort of bumming around waiting for something happen, really.

0:11:070:11:11

I had a few jobs and I was trying to get a band going.

0:11:110:11:14

But it was unsuccessful until I met up with Mick and Keith.

0:11:140:11:17

Do you think the general public started getting a little tired of The Beatles

0:11:170:11:21

and looked for something new?

0:11:210:11:23

I don't know about that. What could you say to a thing like that?

0:11:230:11:28

Things started happening for us.

0:11:280:11:31

-Well... Why? Why did they start happening?

-I don't really know.

0:11:310:11:35

Something sort of... A chemical reaction seemed to have happened somehow.

0:11:350:11:40

-What would you say happened?

-I really don't know.

0:11:400:11:43

MUSIC: "I Just Want To Make Love To You" by the Rolling Stones

0:11:430:11:47

# I don't want you

0:11:470:11:49

# Be no slave

0:11:490:11:51

# I don't want you

0:11:510:11:53

# Work all day

0:11:530:11:55

# I don't want your

0:11:550:11:57

# Money, too!

0:11:570:11:59

# I just wanna make

0:11:590:12:01

# Love to you

0:12:010:12:02

# Oh baby, love to you... #

0:12:020:12:04

The rise to popularity in London...

0:12:040:12:07

Well, the rise to popularity in the world was very short.

0:12:070:12:11

The first night there was about 80 people.

0:12:110:12:14

The second night was about 120.

0:12:140:12:17

And the third night, there were queues outside

0:12:170:12:20

and they couldn't all get in.

0:12:200:12:22

When you saw those crowds growing every week,

0:12:220:12:24

you knew that you were striking a bell somewhere, you know,

0:12:240:12:29

and that something was happening.

0:12:290:12:31

Would you know why England became the pop centre?

0:12:310:12:33

It just happened that England had the right type of sound

0:12:330:12:38

and the right sort of visual image

0:12:380:12:41

that the kids over the world wanted at this particular time.

0:12:410:12:44

I think between Mick, Brian and me, we had a feeling that

0:12:450:12:49

the idea to put a band that was a little less showbusiness

0:12:490:12:52

was exactly at the right time.

0:12:520:12:54

The showbiz angle just was boring to us.

0:12:540:12:58

# ..Love to you, baby

0:12:580:13:00

# Sweet love to you, baby

0:13:000:13:02

# Dah-dah!

0:13:280:13:30

# La-la-la

0:13:300:13:32

# Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner

0:13:320:13:36

# That I love London town. #

0:13:360:13:40

'Of course, you have to talk about Andrew Oldham,

0:13:400:13:43

'who been working for Brian Epstein with The Beatles.

0:13:430:13:47

'He went around London and he heard that we were kicking up a storm in some clubs.

0:13:470:13:50

'He just looks around and says, "Hey, there can't be just one band in England."'

0:13:500:13:55

HE LAUGHS

0:13:550:13:57

'Andrew wanted to make the Rolling Stones the anti-Beatles.

0:13:570:14:01

'So if you've got heroes, you've got an anti-hero, like in a movie.

0:14:010:14:04

'You've got good guys and bad guys.

0:14:040:14:06

'Andrew decided that the Rolling Stones were the bad guys.

0:14:060:14:09

'It wasn't just an accident. He thought the Rolling Stones would suit that image.

0:14:090:14:15

'It helps to have people that go along with it or will fit the bill.

0:14:150:14:19

'It's good to have an actor that will play the part.'

0:14:200:14:23

CHANTING: We want the Stones!

0:14:240:14:26

We want the Stones!

0:14:260:14:28

It started, man, on the first tour.

0:15:170:15:20

Halfway through things start to get crazy.

0:15:220:15:26

# Do you feel all right?

AUDIENCE SCREAMS WILDLY

0:15:500:15:54

FEEDBACK AND GUITAR LEADS BUZZ

SCREAMING CONTINUES

0:16:130:16:17

SILENCE

0:16:170:16:19

We didn't play a show after that

0:16:190:16:21

that was completed, I think, for two or three years.

0:16:210:16:25

MUSIC: "Route 66" by the Rolling Stones

0:16:250:16:27

WILD SCREAMING

0:16:270:16:30

We would take bets on how long a show would last, you know.

0:16:360:16:40

"You're on." "Ten minutes."

0:16:400:16:42

And sure enough,

0:16:470:16:48

wave after wave.

0:16:480:16:50

Some of them are fainting, so the cops and the people and attendants

0:16:500:16:53

are dragging them out on stage, you know.

0:16:530:16:56

# ..On Route 66. #

0:16:560:16:58

I could see the water just running down between the seats.

0:16:580:17:03

It was just a flood of urine pouring down.

0:17:040:17:07

The girls, all the girls, in the audience were wetting themselves.

0:17:070:17:10

# Well, goes from St Louie

0:17:110:17:12

# Down to Missouri

0:17:120:17:14

# Oklahoma City looks, oh, so pretty... #

0:17:140:17:16

Girls wet themselves when they get excited.

0:17:160:17:19

# Gallup, New Mexico... #

0:17:190:17:21

They were like these tiny little girls that would get in there

0:17:210:17:25

and just scream and you couldn't hear anything.

0:17:250:17:28

I just was mouthing it, hoping it was going to be OK.

0:17:280:17:31

Brian and I, we played Popeye The Sailor Man...

0:17:350:17:38

HE LAUGHS

0:17:380:17:40

..and then waited for the shit to hit the fan.

0:17:400:17:43

And you stayed there for as long as you could before it got besieged.

0:17:470:17:51

And then you did a runner.

0:17:510:17:53

Getting in and out was the big deal of the day.

0:17:550:17:58

I hated that.

0:17:580:18:00

I hated being chased by girls and all of that.

0:18:000:18:04

It used to really embarrass me.

0:18:040:18:07

I wish they could have turned it off when the show stopped!

0:18:070:18:10

# Get your kicks

0:18:260:18:27

# On Route 66. #

0:18:270:18:30

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:18:320:18:34

Has there ever been a time getting into theatres and away from them,

0:18:350:18:40

that you've really had the wind up your sails on occasions?

0:18:400:18:44

You really were going to be cut off from... You know, get caught in the crowd virtually?

0:18:440:18:48

-Last night was bad.

-Yes, last night was a good example.

0:18:480:18:50

-What is your worst experience?

-We knocked a policeman off his bike.

0:18:500:18:54

-He broke his leg or something.

-Yeah, he was very cool on his bike.

0:18:540:18:59

Until we ran into him!

0:18:590:19:01

I guess the Rolling Stones aren't everyone's cup of tea.

0:19:010:19:04

And that's the understatement of the year.

0:19:040:19:06

There are whole armies of parents who become almost homicidal at the sight of them.

0:19:060:19:10

Both on stage and off, the Stones don't exactly generate an aura of sweetness and light.

0:19:100:19:16

And their carefully calculated air of "Blow you, Jack!"

0:19:160:19:20

has won them almost as many enemies as fans.

0:19:200:19:22

The Beatles are loved by pretty well everybody,

0:19:220:19:25

from the mums down to the teenagers.

0:19:250:19:27

But what's your real appeal to the fans, do you think?

0:19:270:19:31

You do tend to present a sort of yobbo-ish image.

0:19:310:19:35

-You know, you tend...

-"Moronic" I think is the best word.

0:19:350:19:37

-Yes, moronic.

-Moronic.

-Moronic, that's the word.

0:19:370:19:39

AS A MORON: What's he talking about?

0:19:390:19:42

But the thing is, that you've all had very good educations.

0:19:420:19:46

I mean, why do you present this image? Is it deliberate?

0:19:460:19:50

There are lot of morons at grammar schools, you know.

0:19:500:19:52

Deeeee...

0:19:550:19:57

Yooooow...

0:19:570:19:59

D'aaagh!

0:20:000:20:01

Maooooow!

0:20:020:20:04

A-huh-huh!

0:20:060:20:07

-A-huh-huh!

-A-huh-huh!

0:20:070:20:08

Wish this was all on film, man! Could be great.

0:20:100:20:12

'You see, you're thrust into the limelight

0:20:120:20:15

'in a youth-orientated thing. It's not about growing up.

0:20:150:20:19

'It's about NOT growing up, in a way.

0:20:190:20:22

'Then it's about bad behaviour.

0:20:220:20:24

'And you're about bad behaviour, so then you start behaving badly.'

0:20:240:20:29

'It's the weirdest situation. If you did something wrong, even better!

0:20:290:20:33

'And The Beatles got the white hat, you know.

'What's left? The black hat.'

MUSIC: "Little Red Rooster" by the Rolling Stones

0:20:410:20:44

We never abided by any rules

0:20:460:20:49

that were the gentlemanly things. We never did it.

0:20:490:20:53

That was part and parcel of why we just got ostracised by everyone.

0:20:530:20:58

# Too lazy to crow for day. #

0:20:580:21:01

People used to shout at us, "You're a load of girls!" and, "Get your bloody hair cut!"

0:21:010:21:06

And all this, you know. "Ha-ha-ha!" Make jokes about us.

0:21:060:21:09

You'd see 'em all laughing and pointing and all that.

0:21:090:21:11

It's obvious that you don't get your hair cut, but do you get a trim from time to time?

0:21:110:21:15

Yes, I do. Last night. Last night, yeah.

0:21:150:21:17

-Last night?

-Mm.

-It's certainly grown a lot since then!

0:21:170:21:21

We were just refusing to conform to what everybody wanted us to be.

0:21:210:21:25

This particular hotel manager was trying to be over-officious.

0:21:250:21:29

And I, honestly and sincerely, don't have a tie, you see?

0:21:290:21:32

I used to wear a tie, but the boys didn't wear ties.

0:21:320:21:34

I thought I'd look a bit out if I wore one. So I stopped wearing 'em.

0:21:340:21:38

# ..The hounds begin to howl. #

0:21:390:21:42

Brian used to get upset when they used to say,

0:21:420:21:46

"I stood next to 'em and I could see the fleas jumping off their hair."

0:21:460:21:50

They used to call us the Neanderthals.

0:21:500:21:52

And the ugliest group in the world.

0:21:520:21:55

What sort of words have you been called, in fact?

0:21:550:21:57

-The four-letter words?

-No, the ones that are repeatable.

0:21:570:22:00

We've been called just about everything from beautiful to revolting.

0:22:000:22:03

Brian was a very clever musician.

0:22:040:22:07

He played bottleneck guitar, electric, and nobody did that.

0:22:070:22:12

Except in America! But I mean, nobody did it in London.

0:22:120:22:15

He'd had more experience, I think, in playing.

0:22:150:22:19

So he had some level of musical accomplishment.

0:22:190:22:23

Really Keith and I really didn't.

0:22:230:22:26

Brian and Keith had the worst humour.

0:22:280:22:31

They used to call ordinary working people "Ernies".

0:22:310:22:35

Brian always used to pull his nose down and pull his ear out.

0:22:350:22:38

STUPID VOICE: And talk like that.

0:22:380:22:40

You know, like "working people"! Oh, they were awful!

0:22:400:22:44

Shit, by then we were like jerking it up.

0:22:450:22:48

You know, I mean, it was them against us

0:22:480:22:51

in the most obvious way.

0:22:510:22:54

Sort of, I don't know, perverted anarchy!

0:22:540:22:58

HE LAUGHS

0:22:580:23:00

What about the standard charge that no-one would let their daughter marry a Rolling Stone?

0:23:040:23:09

-Here's the living proof!

-Two of them already did!

0:23:090:23:11

-I married one.

-You married a Rolling Stone?

0:23:110:23:14

-What's this about walking about in bathing suits with all those girls in Texas?

-No, that's not...

0:23:140:23:18

-No, it was Georgia.

-Georgia!

-What can you expect from Georgia?

0:23:180:23:22

Georgia is full of idiots.

0:23:220:23:24

-You're being accused of being vulgar, obstinate and hostile. Are you?

-That's right, yes.

0:23:240:23:28

-Well...

-We're uncouth and obstinate.

0:23:280:23:31

Forthright maybe, but I don't think vulgar and hostile.

0:23:310:23:34

-We're only hostile when we're...

-Too many people talk like the truth!

0:23:340:23:37

What do you give credit for your success now? What is it?

0:23:370:23:40

-Music.

-Music?

-Music.

-Our records have sold.

0:23:400:23:42

Anything you'd like to say right now before the camera rolls up?

0:23:420:23:46

-Goodbye.

-Goodbye!

0:23:460:23:48

-How much of your act is acting?

-Well, I suppose, really, all of it's acting, you know.

0:23:480:23:52

But there's a difference between acting and not enjoying it

0:23:520:23:56

and acting and just doing what you want to do. It's like getting into a part.

As a singer and doing a performance,

0:24:460:24:49

you've got to be very finely attuned to what's going on in the audience.

0:24:490:24:53

Little Richard, literally, taught me this stuff.

0:24:570:25:00

I watched how he would harangue the crowd almost.

0:25:010:25:04

WILD SCREAMING

0:25:040:25:07

He would tease them.

0:25:070:25:08

-AS LITTLE RICHARD:

-Ev'rybody stand up! I said stand up!

0:25:080:25:11

You know, and they would. He was outrageous.

0:25:110:25:14

It kept it all alive, you know, and you never quite knew what was going to happen.

0:25:140:25:18

WILD SCREAMING AND CHEERING

0:25:270:25:29

In those days, we only played covers.

0:25:360:25:39

The first album was all covers.

0:25:390:25:41

I remember having this discussion. "Well, what do we do now? We can't make a second album of covers."

0:25:410:25:46

We all really knew we'd come to the wall there.

0:25:460:25:49

Andrew Oldham said, "If you want to keep going, you've got to..."

0:25:490:25:54

You know, "We need new material."

0:25:540:25:56

This is something I couldn't have conceived.

0:25:560:25:59

0:26:040:26:08

Suddenly, you know, just playing guitar and playing blues...

0:26:080:26:12

Suddenly, it wasn't enough, you know.

0:26:380:26:40

I wanted to make it like he was sitting on the fence

0:26:400:26:43

It's very easy if I feel very dissatisfied with something. I can write about that.

Why then, if you think most your work is about dissatisfaction,

0:31:050:31:09

-why do you think you're so popular?

-Because most young people are dissatisfied.

0:31:090:31:13

In what way?

0:31:130:31:15

With the generation which they think is running their lives.

0:31:160:31:20

When these girls pounce upon Mick,

0:32:030:32:06

and seem to want to tear him to pieces,

0:32:060:32:08

it's not, essentially, an act of aggression,

0:32:080:32:11

but rather an act of devouring him.

0:32:110:32:15

They want to incorporate his essence.

0:32:150:32:18

It's a sort of fetishism,

0:32:180:32:20

which has more in common with people collecting the relics of saints, as they did in the ancient past.

0:32:200:32:26

There's really no break with the ancient tradition. It's just a question of form.

0:32:260:32:31

I've seen this with the most marvellous, dramatic intensity,

0:32:310:32:36

with two or three thousand young girls in Manchester.

0:32:360:32:38

And these girls, they wept. They were possessed by the spirit.

0:32:380:32:41

And I may add, that all their little panties were soaking wet at the end.

0:32:410:32:46

I mean, a complete physical and mental absorption.

0:32:460:32:49

I think that's very true.

0:32:490:32:52

Though I think what's more interesting

0:32:520:32:55

is that in this country the audiences,

0:32:550:32:59

indeed all girls, and they do behave in this way.

0:32:590:33:01

But in the rest of the world, this isn't true.

0:33:010:33:05

In lots of places, they're nearly all boys.

0:33:050:33:07

-With the boys, it erupts, you know...

-Aggressively.

-Much more aggressively.

0:33:070:33:12

And they use it to have a great fight with the police. They just beat the police up,

0:33:120:33:17

as a show of sort of strength,

0:33:170:33:20

or a show of dissatisfaction with something.

MUSIC: "Paint It Black" by the Rolling Stones

0:33:240:33:27

# I see a red door

0:33:270:33:29

# And I want it painted black

0:33:290:33:32

# No colours any more

0:33:330:33:35

# I want them to turn black

0:33:350:33:38

# I see the girls walk by

0:33:390:33:41

# Dressed in their summer clothes

0:33:410:33:44

# I have to turn my head... #

0:33:450:33:47

We had riots every night.

0:33:470:33:50

It was insane.

0:33:500:33:52

I think they just wanted to be part of that rebellious thing

0:33:530:33:57

that we were instigating.

0:33:570:33:59

They weren't attacking us. It was always having goes at the police.

0:33:590:34:03

# I see people turn their heads

0:34:030:34:05

# And quickly look away

0:34:050:34:08

# Like a new-born baby

0:34:090:34:11

# It just happens e'vry day

0:34:110:34:14

# I look inside myself... #

0:34:160:34:18

'Now we're entering the area of social unrest,

0:34:180:34:20

'manifesting itself in a crowd situation.

0:34:200:34:24

'You're just merely the catalyst of the crowd.

0:34:240:34:27

'You know, it could be anything - a football match.

0:34:270:34:30

'You're it on that day.'

0:34:300:34:32

They like the group as well, otherwise they wouldn't come.

0:34:330:34:37

That's just only half of the show.

0:34:370:34:40

The other half of the show is then participating in a riot.

0:34:400:34:44

# I could not foresee this thing

0:34:450:34:49

# Happening to you

0:34:490:34:50

# If I look hard enough

0:34:520:34:54

# Into the settin' sun... #

0:34:540:34:57

What makes you think there would be a riot?

0:34:570:34:59

Well, the Stones seem to have a history of creating violence wherever they go.

0:34:590:35:04

# I wanna see it painted

0:35:150:35:17

# Painted black

0:35:170:35:19

# Black as night

0:35:190:35:20

# Black as coal

0:35:200:35:21

# I wanna see the sun

0:35:210:35:23

# Blotted out from the sky

0:35:240:35:26

# I wanna see it painted, painted, painted

0:35:270:35:30

# Painted black... #

0:35:300:35:32

Yeah!

0:35:320:35:33

ENGINE REVS

0:35:390:35:41

HEAVY BREATHING

0:35:510:35:53

There are a lot of things that the establishment does not like about Mick Jagger.

0:35:530:35:57

But perhaps what rankles most is that he speaks to a vast segment of the population that they can't.

0:35:570:36:02

Across a barrier that at times must be measured in light years,

0:36:020:36:07

the two generations eye each other wearily and distrustfully.

0:36:070:36:11

MUSIC: "Let's Spend The Night Together" by the Rolling Stones

0:36:110:36:15

# My, my, my, my

0:36:150:36:17

# Ba-Ba, ba-ba, ba-ba, ba-ba-ba! #

0:36:170:36:19

It felt like an explosive moment.

0:36:190:36:23

People felt this sensation that something was going on

0:36:230:36:27

that had never happened before, that they'd been waiting to happen.

0:36:270:36:31

# I'm going red

0:36:340:36:35

# And my tongue's getting tied

0:36:350:36:37

# Tongue's getting tied! #

0:36:370:36:38

And it was at that same time in London,

0:36:380:36:41

that all kinds of shit was hitting the fan.

0:36:410:36:44

And, of course, we joined in.

0:36:440:36:47

# Let's spend the night together

0:36:470:36:50

# Now I need you more than ever

0:36:500:36:53

# Let's spend the night together now

0:36:540:36:57

# Ba-ba, ba-ba, ba-ba, ba-ba-ba... #

0:36:570:36:59

Passport to success is a first-class ticket.

0:36:590:37:03

You know, to a lot of... of things.

0:37:030:37:07

# Let's spend the night together... #

0:37:070:37:10

We all smoked dope. I mean, except for Bill.

0:37:100:37:13

But it was pretty innocent stuff. And then you've got more and more different drugs coming in -

0:37:130:37:17

LSD, cocaine, heroin and all these things.

0:37:170:37:21

What do you think of LSD? Is it nice?

0:37:210:37:23

-LAUGHTER

-It's very nice. LSD is very nice.

0:37:230:37:26

'It was like a orgy of drugs, actually!'

0:37:270:37:30

# Baby!

0:37:300:37:31

# You need some guiding, baby. #

0:37:320:37:35

And those drugs were a great interest to the press

0:37:350:37:39

and the general public.

0:37:390:37:42

# Let's spend the night together

0:37:420:37:44

# Let's spend the night together now. #

0:37:450:37:48

The News Of The World was a newspaper that liked to

0:37:510:37:55

reveal the faults in society.

0:37:550:37:59

And they followed people, they put private detectives on people and, unfortunately...

0:37:590:38:03

-ECHOES:

-'It was a set unfortunate, set unfortunate...

0:38:040:38:07

'We were going to have this party, which was the only party...

0:38:070:38:10

'So we're having this party in Keith's house in Redlands and we went off for this expedition.

0:38:100:38:15

'We took acid and then it took a long while to start.

0:38:160:38:20

'It always does.

0:38:200:38:22

'And we met someone who was milking a cow.

0:38:250:38:28

'I don't like milk very much.

0:38:280:38:31

'He said, "Oh, come on, Mick, try the milk."

0:38:310:38:34

'When you're on acid, everything's different.

0:38:340:38:37

'I stood and like milk... I mean, acid, fresh cow milk, everything.

0:38:400:38:45

'And we walked back down to the car and went back to Redlands,

0:38:450:38:48

'by which time it was evening.'

0:38:480:38:50

-VOICES ECHO:

-Problems, man, taking these things. Do it in later life.

0:38:500:38:54

'So we're all coming down and it's a very smooth come down.

0:38:540:38:58

'And we're just sitting around smoking a couple of joints.

0:38:580:39:00

'And, er, bang, bang, bang on the door.'

0:39:000:39:05

# She comes in colours everywhere

0:39:050:39:08

# She combs her hair

0:39:080:39:10

# She's like a rainbow... #

0:39:100:39:14

-What'd been a lovely day, on acid...

-HE LAUGHS

0:39:140:39:17

had turned out to be a very unpleasant evening.

0:39:170:39:20

The News Of The World told the police there was a big drug party

0:39:200:39:23

and they should go and break it up and arrest everybody.

0:39:230:39:27

A national newspaper had tipped off the police

0:39:280:39:30

that it would be worth their while to raid Richards' home for drugs

0:39:300:39:34

on the Sunday afternoon and the raid was carried out on Sunday evening.

0:39:340:39:38

There was a gasp of pure horror from the youngsters crowded into the public gallery

0:39:380:39:42

at the moment Judge Block said sternly to Richards

0:39:420:39:45

that he offence carried a maximum sentence of ten years.

0:39:450:39:47

MUSIC: "She's A Rainbow" by the Rolling Stones

0:39:470:39:51

Emotionally speaking, it was very difficult

0:39:510:39:54

because they thought we were going to be put away and never make another record for years and years.

0:39:540:39:59

People wanted prison sentences. It wasn't just a fine and a wrap across the knuckles.

0:39:590:40:04

We just kind of thought it was the end of the band, really.

0:40:070:40:10

We never knew who was going to be in or out of jail,

0:40:100:40:13

and whether there was a future and all that.

0:40:130:40:16

Did you feel that you were being persecuted for being a Rolling Stone?

0:40:170:40:21

It was obvious that that notoriety, plus the press thing,

0:40:210:40:26

turned it into - yes, it was a good bust for the police, wasn't it? And fun for the press.

0:40:260:40:31

There goes lunch for Richards and Jagger in the cells -

0:40:310:40:35

prawn cocktail, roast lamb with mint sauce, fresh strawberries and cream.

0:40:350:40:39

21 and 6 for Jagger.

0:40:390:40:41

Iced melon, salmon salad, fresh fruit, strawberries and cream. 22 and 6 for Richards.

0:40:410:40:45

And a half bottle of Beaujolais at ten bob a head for each.

0:40:450:40:48

I'd never been in court before and I can't stand the way he's talking to me.

0:40:480:40:53

Calling me reprobate and a menace to society and all of that.

0:40:530:40:58

HE LAUGHS

0:40:580:41:00

All I said was that...

0:41:000:41:02

I'm not interested in your petty morals,

0:41:020:41:06

which gave me a year in the slammer!

0:41:060:41:09

HE LAUGHS

0:41:090:41:11

There was a dead silence as the judge added,

0:41:110:41:13

"You will go to prison for one year."

0:41:130:41:15

And Richards, who earlier had talked in his evidence of what he called "petty morals",

0:41:150:41:20

went down to the cells without expression.

0:41:200:41:22

Jagger put his hand to his face as he was given three months.

0:41:220:41:26

For a moment, he looked like fainting, then prison officers moved forward

0:41:260:41:30

to take his arms and help him down to the cells.

0:41:300:41:33

Mick was taken to Brixton and they sent me to Wormwood Scrubs,

0:41:330:41:38

which is like even worse.

0:41:380:41:40

It's like Folsom or something, you know.

0:41:400:41:44

And walking, I'm doing my first day.

0:41:440:41:46

I've got the uniform on and we're walking round this courtyard in a circle.

0:41:460:41:51

-You know, "exercise" it's called!

-HE LAUGHS

0:41:510:41:54

And then I get a tap on the shoulder from one of the other cons behind me.

0:41:540:41:58

"You're out."

0:41:580:42:00

He said, "We've heard it on the radio."

0:42:000:42:03

I said, "Thank Christ for that!"

0:42:030:42:07

-NEWSREEL:

-London - it's years since such crowds gathered to await an appeal verdict.

0:42:070:42:11

But this was a Rolling Stone's case, with the fans out in force.

0:42:110:42:14

When Mick Jagger was conditionally discharged and Keith Richards' sentence quashed,

0:42:140:42:18

the pop idols drove off, the shadow of jail no longer over them.

0:42:180:42:23

I think I looked at it at the time as like,

0:42:250:42:27

"They can try all they want. They won't make this stick because I've got all these people out there."

0:42:270:42:32

And unless I murdered somebody, they're going to insist that I'm out.

0:42:320:42:37

You've been targeted and then you can revel in your rebelliousness, if you want.

0:42:370:42:42

Because people are doing that for you.

0:42:420:42:44

People are saying, "Oh, it's awful. They've been targeted!"

0:42:440:42:47

It cemented our relationships with our generation, with the public.

0:42:470:42:52

And it sort of gave us a badge of honour, in a way, you know.

0:42:520:42:57

To me, it just made me like, "OK, now you know who I am."

0:42:570:43:00

You've, basically, given me a licence now!

0:43:000:43:03

You know, it's Jessie James time. The cops turned me into a criminal.

0:43:030:43:08

You know, that's when I started to carry a shooter in America.

0:43:080:43:12

-So the outlaw was born?

-Yeah.

0:43:120:43:15

I mean, fully blown. That was when you really put the black hat on.

0:43:150:43:20

Before that, it was just sort of off-grey.

0:43:200:43:23

HE LAUGHS RASPINGLY

0:43:230:43:25

# I was born in a cross-fire hurricane

0:43:250:43:29

# And I howled at my ma in the driving rain

0:43:320:43:37

# But it's all right

0:43:390:43:43

# Now, in fact, it's a gas

0:43:430:43:46

# But it's all right

0:43:460:43:50

# I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash

0:43:500:43:52

# It's a gas, gas, gas!

0:43:520:43:54

# I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag

0:44:040:44:08

# I was schooled with a strap right across my back

0:44:100:44:15

# But it's all right now

0:44:180:44:22

# In fact, it's a gas

0:44:220:44:24

# But it's all right

0:44:240:44:28

# I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash

0:44:280:44:30

# It's a gas, gas, gas... #

0:44:300:44:32

Oooh!

0:44:320:44:34

In a way, I kinda felt that everybody else was writing a script for me.

0:44:370:44:42

"You're going to do what I can't."

0:44:420:44:44

"OK."

0:44:440:44:46

That is a very easy role to slip into.

0:44:460:44:50

There was a slot available and it was just built for me.

0:44:500:44:53

HE LAUGHS

0:44:530:44:54

# Jumpin' Jack Flash, it's a gas... #

0:44:540:44:57

If you're a method actor, you always stay in character.

0:44:570:45:00

-His character has changed.

-Yes, he's changed a lot, this character.

0:45:020:45:05

He's had a lot of changes. It's not just one change.

0:45:050:45:08

He's gone through, you know, every six months another person.

0:45:080:45:13

Every actor's character is part of themselves.

0:45:160:45:19

You can only act what's in you.

0:45:190:45:22

Rolling Stones, five. Take four.

0:45:240:45:26

The Jumping Jack Flash character is more been through the mill

0:45:260:45:30

and come out the other side smiling.

0:45:300:45:33

Yow!

0:45:330:45:34

The Sympathy character's much more complicated,

0:45:340:45:37

because my inspiration for that came from Baudelaire and The Master And Margarita,

0:45:370:45:41

so I had all these things going on.

0:45:410:45:44

Ooow!

0:45:440:45:45

MUSIC: "Sympathy For The Devil" by the Rolling Stones

0:45:470:45:51

It was very much for the time and everything.

0:45:530:45:56

I mean, it's got the violence of the time in it.

0:45:560:45:58

It's provocative.

0:46:000:46:01

# Please allow me to introduce myself

0:46:070:46:11

# I'm a man of wealth and taste

0:46:110:46:14

# I've been around for a long, long year

0:46:160:46:19

# Stole many a man's soul and faith

0:46:190:46:23

# I was 'round when Jesus Christ

0:46:240:46:27

# Had his moment of doubt and pain

0:46:270:46:31

# Made damn sure that Pilate

0:46:320:46:35

# Washed his hands and sealed his fate

0:46:350:46:39

# Pleased to meet you

0:46:420:46:44

# Hope you guessed my name... #

0:46:440:46:47

The violence was all-pervasive and you can't help but live in it

0:46:470:46:52

and reflect it back again and then, of course, it goes into a feedback loop.

0:46:520:46:57

# I watched with glee

0:46:580:46:59

# While you kings and queens

0:46:590:47:01

# Fought for ten decades

0:47:010:47:03

# For the gods they made

0:47:030:47:06

# I shouted out!

0:47:060:47:07

# Who killed the Kennedys?

0:47:070:47:09

# Well, after all

0:47:090:47:11

# It was you and me

0:47:110:47:13

# So let me, please, introduce myself

0:47:140:47:17

# I'm a man of wealth and taste

0:47:180:47:21

# And I laid traps for troubadours

0:47:220:47:25

# Who get killed before they reach Bombay

0:47:250:47:28

# Pleased to meet you

0:47:320:47:34

# Hope you guessed my name

0:47:350:47:37

# Oh, yeah

0:47:370:47:38

# But what's puzzling you is just

0:47:390:47:42

# The nature of my game

0:47:420:47:45

# Oh, yeah... #

0:47:450:47:46

Get down with it!

0:47:460:47:48

I mean, in a way, the Rolling Stones overtake it.

0:47:480:47:52

And it's almost like you're sort of levitating.

0:47:520:47:55

Ooh-hoo!

0:47:550:47:57

You don't even want to touch the strings, cos they're doing it themselves.

0:47:570:48:01

And, anyway, they'd be too hot.

0:48:010:48:04

Ah, baby. All right.

0:48:040:48:06

All right.

0:48:070:48:08

All right.

Aaah, yeah!

0:48:110:48:13

Wooo!

0:48:130:48:14

Woo!

# What's my name?

# What's my name? #

0:49:020:49:04

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:49:120:49:16

Brian was this very talented, unusual guy who played all these things,

0:49:210:49:26

which gave what we did a flavour.

0:49:260:49:29

But his involvement in the band dwindled.

0:49:290:49:32

Keith and I took drugs,

0:49:320:49:35

but Brian took too many drugs of the wrong kind and he wasn't functioning as a musician.

0:49:350:49:40

I don't think he was that interested in contributing to the Rolling Stones any more.

0:49:400:49:45

We didn't even expect him to be there.

0:49:470:49:49

If he turned up, we'd find something for him to do, you know.

0:49:490:49:54

I'd ask him, you know, "What do you think about this? Do you want to put something over this?"

0:49:540:49:59

But, er... No, by then he was already in bye-bye land.

0:49:590:50:05

You certainly didn't know if he was going to turn up and what state he was going to be.

0:50:050:50:10

And then, what was he going to be able to do in that state? What job could you give him?

0:50:100:50:15

Then, one time, when we sat around on the floor, we played in a circle,

0:50:150:50:19

playing No Expectations.

0:50:190:50:21

He picked up the guitar and played very pretty lines on it, which you can hear on the record.

0:50:210:50:26

Eight.

0:50:260:50:27

MELLOW GUITAR STRUMS

0:50:270:50:32

BRIAN'S BOTTLENECK GUITAR JOINS IN

0:50:320:50:37

And that was the last thing I remember him doing

0:50:400:50:44

that was Brian, or the Brian that could contribute something

0:50:440:50:48

very pretty and sensitive.

0:50:480:50:50

And it made the record sound wonderful.

0:50:500:50:53

# Take me to the station

0:51:030:51:07

# And put me on a plane

0:51:070:51:13

# I've got no expectations

0:51:130:51:18

# To pass

0:51:180:51:21

# Through here

0:51:210:51:24

# Again... #

0:51:240:51:25

My ultimate aim in life was never to be a pop star.

0:51:250:51:28

I enjoy it...

0:51:280:51:31

Er, with reservations.

0:51:310:51:33

But, erm, I'm not really sort of satisfied,

0:51:330:51:36

either artistically or personally.

0:51:360:51:39

# Now I am so poor

0:51:390:51:42

# But never in my sweet short life

0:51:420:51:48

# Have I

0:51:480:51:50

# Been so sad

0:51:500:51:53

# Before... #

0:51:530:51:56

Let's face it...

0:51:560:51:58

The future as a Rolling Stone is very uncertain.

0:51:580:52:02

'I remember Mick and Keith saying, "We can't go on like this.

0:52:070:52:11

'"We need another guy." And we did need somebody else.

0:52:110:52:15

'Do you remember what happened that day when you went over there?

0:52:160:52:20

'No, I can't remember.

0:52:200:52:21

'But I remember...

0:52:210:52:24

'It wasn't very nice.'

0:52:240:52:26

CHOIR: # I saw her today

0:52:270:52:30

# At a reception... #

0:52:300:52:33

It was a very, very difficult decision to make.

0:52:330:52:36

This is someone that you've spent the beginning of the band with.

0:52:360:52:41

And, I mean, it was horrible.

0:52:410:52:44

We said to Brian that this isn't working out.

0:52:460:52:50

And he sort of said, "Yes, it isn't."

0:52:500:52:52

And it was very sad.

0:52:520:52:55

And it was... I felt awful afterwards, I remember that.

0:52:560:52:59

I felt really terrible.

0:52:590:53:02

He was the author of his own misfortunes, really.

0:53:040:53:08

But when you look back on it now, you think, "Surely, we could have done something?"

0:53:080:53:12

And, you know, something more than just that.

0:53:120:53:15

# You get what you need... #

0:53:150:53:17

MUSIC: "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by the Rolling Stones

0:53:170:53:21

We were working in the studio with Jimmy Miller.

0:53:280:53:33

And someone came in and said, "Brian's just died."

0:53:330:53:37

Everybody just looked at each other and goes...

0:53:380:53:41

"Finally."

0:53:410:53:43

It was almost like it was bound to happen, one way or another.

0:53:450:53:50

It was a horrible moment.

0:53:510:53:54

I don't know how many months later that was from when we went down to see him.

0:53:540:53:58

He died three weeks later.

0:53:580:54:00

Fuck!

0:54:000:54:01

NEWS REPORTER: 'About midnight, Jones went for a swim with his Swedish girlfriend, Anna Wohlin,

0:54:020:54:07

'and another friend, Mr Frank Thorogood.

0:54:070:54:10

'After a time, Mr Thorogood and the girl went back to the house.

0:54:100:54:14

'When they returned, they saw Jones at the bottom of the pool and they pulled him out.'

0:54:140:54:18

# You can't always get what you want

0:54:180:54:23

# You can't always get what you want

0:54:240:54:28

# You can't always get what you want

0:54:290:54:34

# But if try you sometimes

0:54:350:54:38

# You might find

0:54:380:54:40

-# You get what you need

-Ne-e-e-ed! #

0:54:400:54:43

CHOIR HOLD THE NOTE

0:54:430:54:46

No, it doesn't hit you straight away.

0:54:550:54:58

I think my first reaction was, "Oh, Briano! For all of the things we've been through!"

0:54:580:55:03

It's, er...

0:55:030:55:05

You know, "You don't have to croak over it!"

0:55:050:55:07

You know what I mean?

0:55:070:55:09

-Was there a reason you didn't attend his funeral?

-Yeah.

0:55:120:55:15

It was going to be too much of a circus.

0:55:150:55:18

And, anyway, I... I never went to my mother's funeral, or my father's.

0:55:180:55:23

They didn't have one.

0:55:230:55:26

We're like that, my family.

0:55:260:55:28

My dad is now an oak tree. Put his ashes, you know...

0:55:280:55:31

And there's an enormous oak tree growing and every year it gets a little bigger.

0:55:310:55:36

And my mum, she said, "Don't make no fuss over me, boy!"

0:55:360:55:40

"I promise I'll make no fuss, Mum."

0:55:410:55:44

But Hyde Park was the funeral.

0:55:470:55:49

And the bit about burying and the shovels and all of that,

0:55:490:55:53

it's not that important to me. That was his funeral.

0:55:530:55:57

The Hyde Park concert was two days after Brian died,

0:55:570:56:01

in front of almost half a million people in London.

0:56:010:56:04

The concert had become in his memory,

0:56:040:56:07

when it, obviously, hadn't been planned like that.

0:56:070:56:10

But it had assumed that feeling.

0:56:100:56:12

That morning of the concert,

0:56:120:56:15

they all met in my suite.

0:56:150:56:19

Mick was in the corner and he was in tears.

0:56:190:56:22

I said, "Mick...

0:56:230:56:24

"You've got to just toughen up and move on.

0:56:240:56:28

"That's all you do. That's all we can do.

0:56:280:56:30

"We just move on and do what we planned to do."

0:56:300:56:33

-COCKNEY LAD:

-The Stones are real-life people, not like The Beatles,

0:56:480:56:51

with these seven days in bed and they're true to life.

0:56:510:56:54

They're totally anti-establishment and everybody in the establishment has always bugged the Stones.

0:56:540:56:59

And people have that feeling for them.

0:56:590:57:01

What do you make of all this? As a member of the elder generation,

0:57:010:57:05

do you think it's out of place here?

0:57:050:57:07

Er... Of course, in a way, yes.

0:57:070:57:10

Of course!

0:57:100:57:11

What about your wife? What do you make of this, madam?

0:57:120:57:16

-That's not my wife.

-It's not your wife? I'm very sorry!

0:57:160:57:18

And you see Hyde Park covered in people.

0:57:180:57:21

And you know the normal view, you know, grass.

0:57:210:57:24

HE LAUGHS

0:57:240:57:27

And we hadn't been on stage for a year or so, you know, and it was like, er...

0:57:270:57:32

Talk about going...

0:57:320:57:34

..into the deep end!

0:57:350:57:37

You know, "Oh, let's try a club or two first!"

0:57:370:57:40

No! Boom! Hyde Park. Half a million.

0:57:400:57:43

And, er... But I think it was a good baptism of fire for Mick Taylor.

0:57:430:57:48

HE LAUGHS RASPINGLY

0:57:480:57:51

CROWD CHEERS WILDLY

Crossfire Hurricane, directed by Brett Morgen, provides a remarkable new perspective on the Stones' unparalleled journey from blues-obsessed teenagers in the early 60s to rock royalty. It's all here in panoramic candour, from the Marquee Club to Hyde Park, from Altamont to 'Exile, from club gigs to stadium extravaganzas.

With never-before-seen footage and fresh insights from the band themselves, Crossfire Hurricane places the viewer on the frontline of the band's most legendary escapades.

Taking its title from a lyric in Jumping Jack Flash, Crossfire Hurricane gives the audience an intimate insight, for the first time, into exactly what it's like to be part of the Rolling Stones, as they overcame denunciation, drugs, dissensions and death to become the definitive survivors.

The odyssey includes film from the Stones' initial road trips and first controversies as they became the anti-Beatles, the group despised by authority because they connected and communicated with their own generation as no-one ever had. 'When we got together,' says Wyman, 'something magical happened, and no one could ever copy that'.

Riots and the chaos of early tours are graphically depicted, as is the birth of the Jagger-Richards songwriting partnership. The many dramas they encountered are also fully addressed, including the Redlands drug bust, the descent of Brian Jones into what Richards calls 'bye-bye land', and the terror and disillusionment of 1969's Altamont Festival.

The film illustrates the Stones' evolution from being, as Mick vividly describes it, 'the band everybody hated to the band everybody loves': through the hedonistic 1970s and Keith's turning-point bust in Canada, to the spectacular touring phenomenon we know today. Richards also reveals the song that he believes defines the 'essence' of his writing relationship with Jagger more than any other.

The film combines extensive historical footage, much of it widely unseen, with contemporary commentaries by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and former Stones, Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.
