Never-before-seen photos show Mick Jagger lying naked in bed with two women, pouting and drinking on set in book on iconic film Performance about wild sex and drugs in Swinging Sixties
A half-century since Mick Jagger’s controversial acting debut in Performance comes a new limited-edition book of the same name saluting its revolutionary impact on the political, social and sexual order of its time. Here, with an extract from Jay Glennie’s 50th-anniversary homage - in which stunning unseen imagery and insider truths are revealed - plus three tracts on the film’s influences then and now, GQ celebrates rock'n’roll's greatest cinematic insurgency
Son of Anita Pallenberg
Jay Glennie has done an outstanding job conveying a very dark and difficult film into a beautifully printed book. Personal anecdotes from those involved, great insight and so many unseen images.... I find the book easier to cope with than the movie personally for a myriad of reasons. Congrats Jay
Sir Mick Jagger
It’s 50 years since I filmed Performance & I’m happy to say that Jay Glennie is set to release the Performance 50th Anniversary large format book. Featuring interviews with me, James Fox, Sandy Lieberson, Nic Roeg and over 500 images, it’s a beauty!
Congratulations on a magnus opus. It is special for us who were part of it or close to it then, And it can't help being a huge buzz to the many new people i hope it reaches. It is such a well understood and gorgeous looking assembly of the story. Best wishes!
Xmas has come early in my house with the arrival of Jay Glennie’s sumptuous book telling the story of the making of the iconic film Performance 50th Annversary, It’s a fascinating, in depth peek behind the camera with those who made it & the thoughts of those who cherish it. Bravo Jay.
