Put the haterade back in the fridge. They're like 70 years old now. Besides, this movie has nothing to do with greatest hits.I realize I am getting old, but it has gotten to the point with me that the Stones put out more retrospectives and greatest hits than new material. It seems like only 10 years ago we got "Forty Licks". Can't say there has been a lot of good stuff to add to warrant a 50 year greatest hits. Not much before that it was "25X5". Despite being a huge fan, I have no real interest in the offerings for this 50th anniversary.

I'm really looking forward to this release. I'm a big fan of documentaries and this one looks to be really cool.
Serialised on BBC TV, I watched the first part this morning [1960's to 1970]Watched this last night at the local movie theatre. Great film! Most of the info I had previously read in books but it was cool to actually see some of the carnage. Like in the early days when they couldn't finish a show due to the men rioting and the girls with wet panties attacking Mick. Funny to see stage diving and such back in the mid sixties too!
I'm a big Stones fan and this is a must watch for other fans.
I like Mick Taylor's guitar playing but if you think he deserves more than a footnote in their history you are delusional. The Stones are Mick and Keith first and foremost with a bit of help from Brian Jones, Ian Stewart, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, Mick Taylor and Ronnie Woods in that order. If the Stones were about just music then Mick Taylor deserves a deal of credit for his guitar playing in a certain period of their history, but the Stones as a whole are iconic and about much more than the music.I'd be into it there was more that a 30 sec. bit on Taylor. Stalin wrote Trotsky out of Soviet history to a lesser degree.
There was a bit in the '69 tour coverage where Mick seems to be snorting something off a flick knife - soo Rock and Roll!I want to see this but haven't figured out a way to watch it without actually getting HBO. DVD release isn't far off, may have to wait for that. IMO the Taylor years were pretty darn good, he brought something really different and beautiful, but whoever they had was the right person at the right time. It all worked out pretty well for them.
It's great that Cocksucker Blues is now out online for those who wish to search, it really does convey the highs and lows of the whole thing pretty well. The shots of Keith in the background totally zoned into the next dimension are hilarious.
Well, they did release it as an official digital download last year with a new, Bob Clearmountain mix.If they pressed Brussell Affair into a CD it would outsell all this crap.
