Last night me and a few other Stones fans watched
the L&G movie together with Marshall Chess
at the Strand rock club in Stockholm.
It was shown on a big screen with a full P.A
at concert volume. It was really fantastic!
Marshall told us that this was the first time
since ´74 he had seen it as mentioned.
After the film Swedish journalist Claes Olson
asked him a couple of questions and he told
us about the filming of L&G and the CS Blues Movie
and a lot moore.

Ok,

Here we go.
First Marshall told us about when he learn to know the Stones back in´65,
he talked about the recordings in Chicago and that he used to go out
with Brian. Then a few years later his father Leonard died and he found
out that he to get a job, a friend told him that The Stones were planning
to start their own label. His friend also had Jaggers number, so he called
him and was invited to visit Mick in London. When he arrived Mick was gone
so he had to wait for him a few days. Their first meeting was really strange,
when he came to Micks place he was playing a Clifton Chenier record and
started some kind of free dance in front of Marshall! After his dance Mick
asked him if he wanted to meet Keith, and said that he lived just down
the road. Marshall went to Keiths place and found him at the piano
writing songs with Gram Parsons! Shortly after he was asked to be the manager
for Rolling Stones records. The first job he had to do was to finish their
contract with abkco, the Stonen were recording Sticky Fingers at Micks
place Stargroves and abkco wantaed the S F tapes, Mick told Marshall
I have this song we can give them and started to sing CS Blues.
Marshall met the abkco lawyer and gave him the tape and finally the
Stones were free. After the Exile recordings was done they flew to
L.A and started to mix the album, they also needed a cover for the
album and asked film photographer Robert Frank, he filmed them
with his super 8 and they used some of it for the cover.
When they started the Exile tour Marshall asked Robert if he
wanted to make a film of the tour and he agreed. He started
to film everything and everywhere again with the super 8, and everybody got so used
with him that folks had sex and used drugs rght in front of him
when he was filming. Then someone said that it had to be some
music in the movie so they decided to make a separate concert film.
Marshalls idea was to make a film with the feeling of a Stones
concert sitting at first or second row and with the music in concert
volume and just the stage lights. So they borrowed three 16 mm cameras
from John and Yoko Lennon and filmed four gigs in Texas.
At last my friend Peter wondered if Marshall played any instrument
him self and he told us that he played trumpet during the last
three numbers at some of the gigs during ´73 tour in Europe.

Cool, thanks!

Was this event at Strand public or only for friends/journalists that were invited?
(Not that it matters now...)
