I don’t know what the circumstances would have to be for a person to honestly say that he or she has never heard of the Rolling Stones. I mean, unless you grew up in a developing nation you’re probably familiar with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Hell, if you’ve seen Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean you at least have SOME idea of Keith Richards.
But I digress. The point I’m trying to make is that The Rolling Stones are an incredibly famous and influential band. Many regard their 1972 release Exile on Main Street to be one of the greatest rock albums ever recorded. The Stones may disagree, but there’s no denying the influence of this album.
Stones in Exile is a new documentary about the creation and impact of that album. If I know anything about the Rolling Stones there will be a lot about drug use and a lot of good music.
This is a must-see for any hard core Stones fans. And, tonight, Monday June 21st you’ll be able to see it at the Belcourt. For free. The doors open at 9:30 and it’s first-come, first-serve, so if you REALLY have to go then I suggest getting there a little early. The film will start at 10pm.
Here’s the trailer:
