Rock Of Ages: Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones are as well known for the band members' highly public and often troubled personal journeys as they are for their chart-topping music and flashy concerts.
With eight consecutive #1 albums in the U.S., over 200 million in record sales and decades of sold-out live shows, the Stones are arguably the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world in the world. Having pioneered a gritty, blues-based style of rock in the '60s - and courting a surly, unkempt image that was the antithesis of the Beatles - the group quickly became superstars with Mick Jagger's unique blend of macho showmanship and campy irony.
This compelling documentary charts the band's nearly 50-year history...from their first appearance in 1962 through their meteoric rise to fame (and notoriety), the British invasion, the famous "rivalry" between the Stones and the Beatles and the personal drama...drug busts, in-fighting, off-stage antics with groupies, line-up changes and the death of founder Brian Jones.
