@paulgdaly what's the story here?! :)

The Who must have been really, really good then if Mick was worried. Or Mick was really, really high. I think he's just brilliant here.

@jackietheripper They had been up for three days....Rock'n'Roll Circus was their gig, all their friends came, (Keith invited Jimmy Page and his new band but Jimmy said his New Yardbirds weren't ready.) When they looked at the footage they weren't satisfied with their performances (!) so it was shelved for years. Proving that artists are sometimes the worst judge of their own work.

@jackietheripper as you can see from the footage, Brian could hardly hold the bleedin' maracas let alone a guitar, so Keith is playing everything. You know he's thinking "After this is over you are out ya cock!".

@jackietheripper Keith pretty much played every guitar part on "Jumpin Jack Flash" and "Beggars Banquet".

@debutch The look that launched a million indie bands!

@jackietheripper There are some great performances including The Dirty Mac Band -- Lennon/Clapton/Keith/Mitch Mitchell -- doing "Yer Blues".

@debutch You'll appreciate this from Jagger "Iggy's all right. I saw him with...Bowie on that last tour - the band was pretty ropey, I thought. Here, listen, I know who started all that! Lou Reed. Lou Reed started everything about that style of music, the whole sound & the way you play it. I mean, even WE'VE been influenced by the Velvet Underground... No, really. I'll tell you exactly what we pinched from the first Velvet Underground album. You know, the sound on Heroin. Honest to God, we did!"

@paulgdaly Well, most of us know that The Beatles, The Stones & The Velvets are the 3 most influential bands of all time but the VU even influenced the Stones?? Wow...I'm trying to think of a Stones track with a "Heroin" sound on it....btw, Brian Jones DID play some lovely guitar on "No expectations" from "Beggars' Banquet"

Mick. Fucking. Jagger ... @paulgdaly hell yes!

@debutch Jagger claims the opening of Street Fighting Man is influenced by Heroin. I don't hear it myself but.....y'know.

@debutch Brian is reputedly the slide guitar on No Expectations but interestingly enough Eric Clapton and Nick Mason also dropped in on those sessions.

@BladeRunner Seriously, the first time I went to see the Stones (1982) I was so juiced. Keith is my fave rocker and I'm in awe of Charlie Watts. But Mick Jagger blew me away. And all the times after he was always never less than great.

@paulgdaly, I watched some of the other footage. It's all pretty cool to me! The Who were really good. :) I can kind of see how tired the Stones were now, but they were very cool. Great footage of John and Eric too!

@savagetea, Holy Cow! kkkkkkkk good one!

@jackietheripper yep, it is all pretty good. It was just that the Stones for whatever reason decided they didn't like their performances. It wasn't like they abandoned film. The next year they would have the Mayles along to film the US tour and we got the movie Gimme Shelter. I don't know if you know this but the Stones also had the film rights to A Clockwork Orange but abandoned it because of difficulties with the British censorship laws.
