I remember last summer Miles and I were talking about music, and I asked him if he had seen Cocksucker Blues, the movie about the Rolling Stones on tour in the late ’60s or early seventies. Robert Frank filmed it for them and when they saw the footage, they were appalled at their own behavior. It is not shown very often. Miles had somehow got his hands on it. I had not seen it.
Miles liked Robert Frank. Before working with the Rolling Stones, he photographed circus freaks. The band liked his work so much that they had him do the cover for Exile on Main Street and then shoot Cocksucker Blues.
