Robert Greenfield's excellent book, Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell
, the story behind the recording sessions for The Rolling Stones' classic album Exile On Main Street
, will be made into a film financed by Virgin Produced, the movie branch of Richard Branson's media empire. Virgin announced the film will be a dramatization about the sometimes fraught relationship between Keith Richards and Mick Jagger.
Richards recalled the Exile
sessions in an interview with Rolling Stone
magazine in 2010. "It wasn't a great environment for, like, breathing. But Mick Taylor was such a virtuoso, and I was just very raw … if I had my way, he's still be in the band.
