Awesome: The Rolling Stones

  • The 1972 North American Tour promoting Exile On Main St. The Texas shows captured on film in "Ladies and Gentlemen, the Rolling Stones".
  • During one show in 1981, shortly after John Lennon's murder, when rockstars were understandably wary of Loony Fans, the Stones were in the middle of "Satisfaction" when Keith spotted a lone fan climbing on stage and making a dash for Mick. Keith calmly turned down the volume on his guitar, hit the guy over the head with it, strapped his guitar back on, turned up the volume and kept playing without missing a beat. Then he went down to the police station and bailed the guy out.
    Keith: Security was not there. I'm watching Mick's back.
