Rolling Stones film set for release

A new film chronicling the rise of the Rolling Stones from teenagers to rock stars is set to hit the cinema in October, including a commentary from Bill. Called Crossfire Hurricane – a lyric taken from the song Jumpin’ Jack Flash – will be released in British cinemas, and includes documentary footage of the early years of the Stones, including their first tours.

“This is not an academic history lesson,” director Brett Morgen said in a statement at App.com. Instead, the film invites the audience to experience “the Stones’ nearly mythical journey from outsiders to rock and roll royalty,” he said.

The documentary will later be shown on TV channels HBO in the US, and the BBC in the UK. The band first played in July, 1962 at The Marquee Club in London.

  1. Hi. I’m very glad to see that the new film about The Rolling Stones is about to appear this year. I’m a big fan of The Stones music… i actually started my personal adventure with the Stones history in 1992, pretty much the same time Bill Wyman left the band;-)) what’s even more funny is that i used to practice double bass at that time. Those were my school days, today i’m 37 years old, and except for composing electronic rock via my own project Gendy Ocka, i also learn to make some videos. I would like Mr. Wyman to visit http://www.gendy-ocka.muzzo.pl/ and see the clip that’s placed there. Hope He will enjoy it. I also hope to visit Sticky Fingers Restaurant. Best regards – Pete (born in the year of “Black and blue”, Undercover of the night, between a rock and a hard place)
