It seems not much has changed over the past 50 years with regard to fame and privacy, as members of The Rolling Stones can attest. In a 1965 interview clip — seen exclusively at Zap2it — Brian Jones describes the cost of the band’s sudden skyrocket to stardom.
“There’s not much physical freedom,” says Jones. “We have to choose very carefully where we go, where we socialize, where we go for holidays, because of our peculiar sort of success.”
Charlie Watts adds, “I haven’t got much time to do what I want.” (Sound familiar, Miley Cyrus?)
The DVD release of “Charlie Is My Darling – Ireland 1965” is timed to coincide with the band’s 50th anniversary. The road-trip documentary was shot on a mini-tour through Ireland, and features intimate conversations and candid comic moments with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Jones and Watts, as well as The Rolling Stones’ first professionally filmed concert performances.
“(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” is captured on film for the first time, just weeks after the song hit No. 1 on the charts.
The documentary made its debut at the 50th New York Film Festival, and is available Nov. 6 as part of a Super Deluxe Box Set that includes a 42-page hardcover photo book with never-before-seen images, two audio CDs, a ten-inch vinyl record, and a replica tour poster.
The Rolling Stones have a lot to celebrate from the last five decades. Anyone think people will still be talking about Miley in 50 years?
