Anyone who has doubts, should check out Hail! Hail! Rock ‘n’ Roll! The 1987 film documents the effort by Richards, to stage a tribute concert for/with his idol, Chuck Berry. Berry is nothing if not a proud man, and of course he once famously punched Richards in the face. Here it’s remarkable they didn’t pick up right where that left off.
In this great scene, Berry wants to show who’s boss, and puts Richards through the ringer — making him repeat the slur on “Carol”, over and over again.
I love how Richards says that “such a great sound came off the needle”, and moves his hand, as if it shot him through with lightning. There’s also a great shot of Johnny Johnson, Berry’s original pianist, who seems quite familiar with Berry’s modus operandi.
