Unreleased 1972 Rolling Stones movie on YouTube

posted by Jason Kottke   Sep 09, 2008

In 1972, Robert Frank followed The Rolling Stones on their tour of North America and made a film called Cocksucker Blues. The title referenced a song written by the band as a fuck-you to their outgoing record label. The film was never released but bootleg copies exist…and a copy has inevitably found it’s way onto YouTube in nine parts (93 minutes total).

Part one, part two, part three, part four, part five, part six, part seven, part eight, and part nine.

The quality is not very good but for hardcore Stones and music fans, it’s probably worth a look if you haven’t seen it. NSFW.

GQ interview with Keith Richards. Do I

GQ interview with Keith Richards. Do I even need to say it’s rambling?

Q: You should sell your body on eBay.
Yeah, I think so. Apparently, I do have an incredible immune system. I had hepatitis C and cured it by myself.

Q: How?
Just by being me.

Q: Do you regret not moisturizing your face?
No. I leave that up to other people.

Q: Ever think about getting Botox?
No one’s ever talked me into doing that. You’re lucky if you walk out of there alive. God bless you.

Q: Are you still cutting your own hair? You’ve done that all your life, right?
Yes. I did this bit here yesterday. [holds up a few strands on the side of his head] Also, I’m letting the dye grow out, since I’m not on the road. If the wife likes it, I’ll keep it.
