I just saw a mid 60s clip of the Rolling Stones, on TV, and I was wondering about Brian Jones and the Rolling Stones, when did he join, when did he die. And his last formal appearance was in the Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus, a film the Stones wouldn’t release for 28 years until ‘96.
It’s an amazing film, really well shot with modern camera angles and production, you wouldn’t believe it’s 60s which usually has too many and too long close-ups. And it has John Lennon with Mick, The Who, Jethro Tull, Eric Clapton, all doing excellent performances, including The Stones, who I’m not a big fan of, but they’re really good in this, even though they didn’t think so.
And as for Brian Jones, well, I don’t see the rest of the group acknowledging him on stage, but wouldn’t you be pissed off if another band member had run off with your girlfriend of 2 years!!
And does Mick Jagger have tattoos because he certainly does in part 6 of the YouTube clips. Are they temporary for the film, because if not, that would be quite a shocking thing for the 60s, but very David Beckham nowadays!
I take it all back. I thought the filming looked familiar. The Beatles did it first with All You Need is Love, and look, there’s Mick Jagger in the audience in ‘67.
