Rolling Stones video

Friday, January 4, 2002 5:33 AM
has anyone seen the video for Rolling Stone's Paint it Black? I was watching VH1 Classic and the video was playing and basically the whole thing is this fat guy with his face painted white and riding a wooden coaster with this little kid. Kinda strange video, but the coaster shots were cool. Could be any number of woodies that are like The Cyclone.

I know it was shot at Six Flags Over Georgia, and I'm pretty sure the woodie was The Great American Scream Machine, but it could've been the Georgia Cyclone.

I saw the video a while ago, and I think there was a shot of the people standing at the entrance of the coaster and I think it said The Great American Scream Machine on the "You Must Be This Tall To Ride..." sign. I think I also saw the logo on the front of the train.

So... I KNOW it was shot at Six Flags Over Georgia, and I think the coaster was The Great American Scream Machine.

I just saw the video for Mick Jagger's latest single off his solo album...in one section they're walking through an arcade.  I think I saw the lights on a DDR machine in the background!  DDR RULES!!!!!

Speaking of which, This brings back memories of seeing the video "made in england" by Elton John when I was a little kid.. It looked like Magnum at the time [even though it wasn't {I was like 5 yrs old}] and I am assuming it was some coaster in England.. :-P... kept showing a POV going up the red-tracked lift hill throughout.

That fat guy's a spook, lol! The kid's riding with something scarier than the ride, I think that was the point. I see it on VH1-Classics often enough. The video looks old enough, IMO for it not to be the Cyclone @ SFoG, although it is a Six Flags coaster. I've never known which one, though. I've riden the GASM there many times, that connection's never came to me. Nor have I noticed it's logo anywhere. I'll watch closer next time. My assumption was it was @ Magic Mountain & it might be Psyclone, but just because it was the easy guess since I don't know what Psyclone looks like. Really? Six Flags over Georgia? Is there any info on this?

BTW, look for the Hendrix video Fire. It has people getting married on the Texas Cyclone.

All those old coaster rock vids are from an old nickelodeon show called "wild rides."  Brings back alot of memories!  The Car's "dont'cha stop" is the Mindbender (with metallic green track!).  The Roaring Tiger at Circus world was also in there...

When was the video for Paint it Black made?  If I'm not mistaken, that is a very old song, like from '64 or '65, when music videos were just beginning to be made and were not really very popular at all.  I wonder if the Stones went back and made a video for the song at a later date.  Probably, because it sounds like this video has a concept, and that didn't enter music videos until the 70's.  Early videos were just of the band standing around playing their songs. 

If the video was made at the time the song came out, than the coaster is probably the CI Cyclone, because that was the only Cyclone around at the time.  If the video was made later (more likely), than it could be any number of the CY-clones, maybe even the Texas Cyclone, since that opened in 1976.

The coaster is the GASM, you can see the sign a couple times, plus the red,white and blue, and stars painted on it. I assume the stones made the video at a later date or as coasterbill73 said, for that show.

No... that footage of the GASM "paint it black" video is from WILD RIDES, the early 80's Nikelodeon show.  The song "paint it black" is from 1966.  The only 'video' of it is of the Stones performing it live on the Ed Sullivan show in 1966.  (I think the first real studio 'video' from the Stones was "Angie" in 1973, any Stones fans?)

I know there is a Stones video that involves some sort of crazed carnival or freak show.  I want to say that it's for "Sympathy for the Devil," but I think that isn't right.  At any rate, I'm pretty sure that video predates "David."  Oops, I meant "Angie."

That's from the Rolling Stone's Rock N Roll Circus, 1968.  Any TV show or (anybody) can take any live footage and make a 'video' outta it.  But nowadays, no-one sings, it's all lip-sync.  I'm pretty sure "Angie" (1973) was the first 'meant to be' video from the Stones
