At the end of the 60’s, the Stones were at a turning point. Hounded by the press, battling drug busts, and facing possible financial ruin, the band throw down the gauntlet and decamp to France to begin the most arduous recording sessions of their entire careers for an album that in time will come to be regarded as one of the greatest Rock ’n’ Roll albums ever made. This is the story of the Stones in exile. This is the Stones fighting for their lives. This is the story of the making of “Exile on Main Street”. Stones In Exile looks back over that exuberant period of scandal and creativity. Newly shot interviews with the band and a selection of the cast of characters from the time help to shed light on what it was like to be in, or around the band during those hedonistic days, while archive footage, tour outtakes and candid photographs recreate the rock ‘n’ roll era.
