Stones In Exile

Stones In Exile

At the end of the 60’s the Rolling Stones were at a turning point: hounded by the press, battling drug busts, and facing possible financial ruin. The band threw down the gauntlet and decamped to the south of France to begin the most arduous recording sessions of their entire careers for an album that, in time, came to be regarded as one of the greatest rock and roll albums ever made. This is the story of the Stones in exile, and the making of ‘Exile on Main Street.’ Featuring a treasure-trove of rare and never-before-seen film and photos, new interviews with the band and some of the men and women who bore witness to the album’s creation, STONES IN EXILE is a heady time-travel trip back to the summer of 1972 that bears witness to a vivid moment in rock and roll history.
