    The 1960's were a coming of age for the Rolling Stones. Raised in the aftermath of World War II, Brian Jones, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman and Ian Stewart came together with one common interest - rhythm and blues music.

    The 1970's was a decade of extremes for the Rolling Stones. They rose to the height of their creative powers, spun downward under stardom's weight and then climbed back up again.

    The 1980's proved to be the most trying decade the Rolling Stones ever faced. Amidst middle-age, creative conflicts, and solo projects, the Stones almost broke up for good. But the same tensions that nearly shattered the band would also reinvent them.

    It was during the 1990's that the Rolling Stones proved once and for all that rock 'n' roll has no boundaries or age limits.

    Only one band has defined Sex, Drugs & Rock 'n' Roll for 40 years. The Rolling Stones has truly stood the test of time, from their untamed, bluesy beginnings in swingin' London to the changing of the millennium 40 years later.

This is an inside look into the Rolling Stones. First chapter is obviously their formation and early years (up to Altamont). That's what this review is about. Near as I can tell that's what these reviews are supposed to be about.

I have never seen these particular reviews before. They're the sort of thing that I imagine the British have always had - a wealth of people who were there, who were involved, who can say where, when, how, what it felt like, what it smelled like... and they have the polaroids to prove it. Marianne Faithful, Mick Taylor, first time I've seen Andrew Oldham. A bunch of intriguing stories straight from the mouth of some famous, some absolutely mundane but credentialed visitants and participants. Fantastic.

The announcer is a bit of an odd choice - his voice is either the same as, or simply from tthe same school as the guy that used to do Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. So imagine his voice as he regales you with the story of Brian Jones taking a silver tray to Anita Pallenberg's face in what was almost certainly a drug-fueled rage. Your sympathies for the pied piper might suffer but the cognitive dissonance is hilarious, (Anita suffered more bruised ego than face and was thus swept into Keith Richard's arms)...

trash.....like many "documentaries" that compile various public (available to) footage and useless third party interviews of people who probably have never met any of the stones and probably not even been to one of their concerts-this is pure trash...stick to the authentic stones docs.....i don't think the glimmer twins are afraid of telling us exactly what went on..... besides it is all about the music and who cares about the rest of it...

How badly do you need a Stones fix?
I was going to give this three stars until I saw the last episode -- which was mainly a compilation of clips from the previous four, plus a very long advert for the 40 Licks tour. They do manage to interview Mick Taylor, Billy Preston and a couple of the backing singers from various tours, But there's not much else. A lot of news segments and clips we've seen before going back to 1963. This just scratches the surface of the Stones' first 40 years (now over 50 years). Very repetitive. And no Stones music -- just "Stones-ish" instrumentals from sound-alike musicians. Really -- you're better off getting one of the many books on the Stones' history (such as Keith Richards' excellent autobiography) and then watching a Stones concert on YouTube.

A Music Documentary with Nno Music...
I love the background information and interviews, the narration, and the archival video footage, but seriously, no actual music, even during the transitions in the story?!?!
