We Love You

Note Keith's coat.  It was painted by Mick's brother, Chris, and is the same one Mick can be seen wearing in 1968 on the set of Marianne's film The Girl On A Motorcycle:

The video for "We Love You" was filmed on Sunday, July 30, 1967.  Mick and Keith had recently been released from their charges for the Redlands Drug Bust, and "We Love You" was a song Mick thought up in jail, a sort of "thank you" to the fans for their unflinching support.  In a stroke of genius that was totally in their humor, Mick and Keith decided to film a short video recreating the legendary trial of Oscar Wilde in 1895 (he was found guilty of homosexual behavior).  Keith plays the judge, replete with a wig made up of The News Of The World prints about the bust (The News Of The World were responsible for tipping off the police about the drugs at Redlands).  Mick, naturally, plays Oscar Wilde, and Marianne, his gay lover "Bosie".  That fur rug you see? The one Marianne was found in.

I've always been very much enamored with that coat. I wonder where it is now..

Anyway, this short is a notorious part of Stones folklore, and it'll always have a spot in my heart. After all, how incredible do they all look? xo.

This is one of my favorite videos from them. Where do you get all your magazine/books that you scan from? Love this post! <3

PS. What, in your opinion, do you think the best book about the Stones is?

Hey love! These pictures were scanned from the book "The Rolling Stones: On Camera, Off Guard 1963 -1969" by Mark Hayward (photos by a bunch of different photogs). It was released November 1 and I got it on Amazon. It has some great shots of Anita and Mick by Cecil Beaton during the Performance filming. I get most of my stuff from Amazon or Ebay. It's an expensive hobby though! If you want, I can send you a lost of my Stones book collection and tell you my faves.

I admired the Mick's career I follow that since I was child but I'm so disappointed because in that video he was wearing gay clothes, maybe his girlfriend was disappointed too.

I'm really glad that I found your blog, the entry is not just what I was randomly looking for to spend some time before getting back to work, but it has also some other nice topics, at least for what I could quickly check. I'll read you more often!
