So. Went to the Crossfire Hurricane screening at London Film Festival last night. And no, we weren't with the band. Never having been to a world premiere before, me & Mr That's Not My Age arrived just as the Rolling Stones were stepping off the red carpet and into the Odeon. Not that we could see them from where we were standing. Behind the crowd, behind the barriers, in the centre of Leicester Square. In the rain. Glamorous, eh?
But being ticket-holders, they let us in. Which involved a faintly ridiculous stroll down the red carpet. In case you're wondering, I was wearing military not Marchesa. The old army surplus camouflage jacket has turned into an urban uniform, of late. But that's OK, all the other civilians were dressed down too. Here's our view:
We watched most of the red carpet action on the big screen, inside the cinema. Ahem. That Is My Age. Then the Rolling Stones came by to say hello:
|Bill Wyman. Who's he?|
I liked the documentary. Though there's not a great deal of new footage, it's neatly put together and the hysteria surrounding the band in the sixties is palpable. It's just a shame it all comes to an abrupt end in the early eighties. What about the last 30 years? Surely Mick & Keef's spats are the most interesting bit? Ah well, Crossfire Hurricane 2, here we come.

Jerry Hall was there too. In an eye-catching animal print two-piece and flat shoes. Loving Jerry at the moment, even though she's not the best dancer - what was she doing at Studio 54? (don't answer that) - the 56-year-old is good fun on Strictly. And apparently will be dancing the paso doble to Paint it Black in a couple of weeks.
Enjoy the weekend.
