THE COCKSUCKERS STLL WON’T RELEASE COCKSUCER BLUES > EITHER OF THEM
THE ROLLING Stones and their record label Decca > the London label in the US > were feuding at the end of the Sixties as their contract drew to a close.
Decca claimed they were entitled to one more single > so the Stones gave them Cocksucker Blues.
Well aware that such a song > with those two words and other not-so-niceties riddled throughout > could never be released. And it never was, officially.
There’s a Rolling Stones documentary also titled Cocksucker Blues > which hardly ever sees the light of day. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at the Stones 1972 tour of America > featuring band members getting it off with groupies in the back of their private plane.
Under complicated legal arrangements, the Rolling Stones have never allowed the Cocksucker Blues film to be officially released. Film director Robert Frank instead given the right to screen the film once > and I do mean once > in a blue moon. [Well, that was the edict up until about now – circa 2016.]
