Fall Drive Rolling Stones Special
A limited offer for Rolling Stones fans during Dennis Elsas' show on Tuesday, October 2 from 2-6pm via phone only: 877-WFUV-907 (877-938-8907)
We've got tickets for a special screening of The Rolling Stones Charlie is my Darling - Ireland 1965, the long-rumored but never released film of the Rolling Stones’ 1965 tour of Ireland, this Friday, October 5 at the 92nd Street Y. A discussion follows with the film's producer, Andrew Loog Oldham (the Stones’ first manager) speaking with celebrated rock guitarist and raconteur Steven Van Zandt.
The film boasts both meticulously restored and never-before-seen footage that features the first professionally filmed concert performances of the Stones, and captures the early frenzy of their fans and the riots their concerts stirred. The 92nd Street Y is located on Lexington Avenue at 92nd St. in Manhattan.
With the tickets you'll also receive The Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Rock 'n' Roll — a beautiful photo book from Life magazine, full of amazing shots from throughout the band's 50-year life (there's a sampling in the photo gallery below).
This package can be yours with your contribution of $250 during Dennis' show, by calling our Membership Line at 877-WFUV-907 (877-938-8907).
More about the book:
Hollywood, were it casting its rock band epic, could not invent a more flamboyant or charismatic frontman than Mick Jagger. When looking for the “incendiary guitarist living life on the edge,” the producers could not concoct anything near as riveting as the real-life Keith Richards. Then you throw in the brotherly love-hate relationship that has existed between these two since they were four-year-olds, the steadying influence of sage Charlie Watts back behind his drum kit, the many children and wives and girlfriends, the backstabbing of band-members and managers, the drugs and drug busts, the deaths (inside the band and even in the audience) — and then, oh what the heck, Pirates of the Caribbean — and, well: Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the Rolling Stones.
At every stage, there were cameras, and on every page of this book there are pictures that capture the remarkable story of this band — its life and times, on stage and off. There are photographs of private weddings and public wakes, of concerts in front of 80,000 fans and quiet moments with the kids. Other famous folk pass through — Andy Warhol, the Beatles — as the Stones saga unfolds.
