Rolling Stones Documentary 'Cocksucker Blues' Leaks Online
Directed by Robert Frank, the 93-min film chronicled the band's North American tour in 1972 for promoting their album Exile on Main Street. However, due to its content, including drug taking, backstage partying, roadie antics, and other imaginable and unimaginable rock-superstar lifestyle elements, "Cocksucker Blues" was banned by the band.
It just so happens that a lot of, well, rock star type of stuff happened during that tour, like, as Flavorwire so elegantly puts it, “Mick Jagger snorting coke amidst nude roadies and Keith Richards pre-Pirates of the Caribbean III.”
Guitarist Keith Richards once declared: "If anyone in America saw it, we’d never be let in the country again."
"Cocksucker Blues" has been remained under a court order forbidding the film from being publicly aired with only one exception - when director Frank was physically present at the screening.
The title of the documentary, "Cocksucker Blues," refers to the song with the same title that Mick Jagger wrote to be the Stones' final single at Decca Records.
The entire film of "Cocksucker Blues" is available for streaming at wat.tv, for now.
