Notorious banned film makes it onto blogs
The Rolling Stones‘ banned documentary ‘Cocksucker Blues’ has appeared online.
The film, commissioned by the band for their 1972 US tour to be covered by photographer Robert Frank, was banned by the band due to its content, which included drug taking and various other rock ‘n’ roll antics.
However, yesterday (August 19) the film was posted on the Flavorwire.com blog.
Due to a court order imposed following the rockers’ protestations, the film can only be legally aired in public when director Frank is present at the screening.
Guitarist Keith Richards once declared: “If anyone in America saw it, we’d never be let in the country again.”
