1972 - Cocksucker Blues

Cocksucker Blues is an unreleased documentary film directed by Robert Frank chronicling The Rolling Stones' North American tour in 1972 in support of their album Exile on Main Street.

There was much anticipation for the band's arrival, with their having not visited the United States since the 1969 disaster at Altamont Free Concert, in which a fan, Meredith Hunter, was stabbed and beaten to death by Hells Angels. Behind the scenes, the tour embodied debauchery, lewdness and hedonism.

The film was shot cinéma vérité, with several cameras available for anyone in the entourage to pick up and start shooting. This allowed the film's audience to witness backstage parties, drug use (Mick Jagger is seen snorting cocaine backstage), roadie antics, and the Stones with their defences down.

"Cocksucker Blues" was also the title of a Rolling Stones song, recorded in 1970, that Mick Jagger wrote to be the Stones' final single for Decca Records as per their contract. The song is a parody of Dr. John's The Lonesome Guitar Strangler, released on his album Babylon the year before, however its context and language was chosen specifically to anger Decca executives. The track was refused by Decca, although promotional 12" singles of it were pressed in the US, and was only officially released later on a West German compilation in 1983, although the compilation was discontinued and since re-released without the song.

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
