Gazza Ta for the reminder, Billy..I'd almost forgotten about it.

Dylan's in a future programme in this series too.

Zeeta Won't it be just be the usual = "Marianne faithful had a mars bar implanted in a rude place" type of doco though?

I may listen to the first 3 minutes as a trial...

What? this is the esteemed and hallowed BBC youre talking about, sir...how will they get away with saying "fanny" on radio 2, even if its in the context of a documentary?

Zeeta HAHA!

nah but you know what I mean, just a bloody basic run of the mill biography of the band. With satisfaction on repeat in the background as some hack journalist reels off obvious Stones facts...

"Mick Jagger learnt many of his moves from Little Richard and James Brown"

"Keith once had a drug problem"

"Charlie Watts - is the quiet member"

etc!

I forgot about as I was too busy getting caught up in Rangers v Celtic on TV...!

Hannalee It wasn't bad; you can judge for yourself if you listen to it on the website.

Listen again: more shows.

Zeeta I too missed the gig! albeit I just forgot! Drank red wine and listened to JJF, the version where Jagger goes "Welcome to the Breakfast Show!". This could be the best version of JJF...I dunno what Mick Taylor does at the start of the second verse but it's genius!

Anyway I can't even be arsed to listen to the, obvious doco which no doubt contained;

"Mick Jagger learnt many of his moves from Little Richard and James Brown"

"Keith once had a drug problem"

"Charlie Watts - is the quiet member"

Hold on add;

"Bill has a penchant for little girls"

&

"Woody, still refered to as the New Boy"

Gazza Brian - he formed the band and then he drowned

Mick Taylor - not mentioned at all

Bet I'm not far wrong!

Hannalee It isn't a documentary as such, but journalistic extracts from various stages of the Stones' career - you know, Joe Bloggs describing in Creem a gig he went to in 1969. There's a quite long essay on Brian.
