The Stones By The Stones

It's been about fifty years since the first gig by the rhythm and blues-obsessed teenagers who turned into one of the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world. As "The Rolling Stones" hit the live stage again and release the new compilation album "GRRR!" Paul Sexton marks the occasion by digging into his extensive interview archive with the rock heroes. Paul has been interviewing The Stones since the early 1990s, and in this show he selects some of his own favorite moments spent in their company. The program features revealing conversations recorded around the world - in rehearsals in Toronto, backstage in Amsterdam, in London and New York hotels, and even in Keith Richards' living room in Connecticut.
