The Rolling Stones legend reveals details of the early 70s when they had the orgies and drug taking, calling it lot of fun 'but generally quite a creative period despite all the excesses.'
Sir believes the "orgies and drug taking" of the early 70s were a result of it being a creative time. legend, who is the focus of new documentary "Stones in Exile" at the Cannes Film Festival, reveals details of the period in the film and admits it was a period of excess.

"The orgies, the drug taking? Yes I remember it well," Jagger said. "It was lot of fun, quite a bumpy time but generally quite a creative period despite all the excesses. In those days that's how it was done, we got away with it."

The release of the documentary will be accompanied by the digital re-mastering of their iconic LP "Exile on Main St.", which will also include 10 brand new songs that have been lost for decades, which the band always knew the tracks existed but couldn't find. Jagger added, "They were in our tape store, mouldering away probably."

"They don't have a very good shelf-life, you have to bake them, put them in the oven." The tracks were mostly instrumental but Jagger wrote retrospectively to revive the lost songs. He said, "I wrote in the mood of 'Exile', it was interesting."
