It's only rock and roll, but I like it.

I haven't watched it in a while, but I think this is one of the more upbeat scenes (those are few and far between) from Gimme Shelter (1970), in which Keith Richards throws a hotel room television set from a balcony. If this isn't from Gimme Shelter, I'd guess it's from the unreleased Cocksucker Blues (1972) :

I think it's from the latter.

They were off their rocker back then! They should have dropped a Fridge!

blognor regis-thanks dude. I thought so.

vid digger-they were off their rocker then. I love that period of Stones' history! I like your video blog. The karaoke-esque lyrics thing is a good idea.

That telly would be a valuable collector's item now if they hadn't dropped it off a hotel balcony.
