Willie And The Poor Boys
In November 1984, Bill Wyman got together a group of well known musicians to record an album to help the Ronnie Lane Appeal for A.R.M.S. The band was called Willie and the Poor Boys and the fantastic line up on the album included Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts, Kenney Jones, Jimmy Page, Paul Rodgers, Chris Rea, Andy Fairweather-Low, Geraint Watkins, Mickey Gee and Henry Spinetti.
Discovered in Bill Wyman's personal archive, this concert film and accompanying documentary make up this superb special edition, which has been digitally re-mastered with Dolby 5.1 and DTS soundtrack options.
On March 11th and 12th in 1985, the core members of the band and more additional star guests, turned up at the Fulham Town Hall, to make this film of Willie and the Poor Boys. This rare event, marked a historical Rock 'n' Roll moment where members of the Rolling Stones, the Who and The Beatles joined together for a film project.
"The one thing that we found with the video shoot was that everyone went in there with great spirits & really went out to have a good time" - said Bill Wyman during 'The Making Of'.
This film is a real 'Gem' - unearthed by Classic Pictures from Bill Wyman's personal vault & will be a 'must have' for any collector of Classic Rock.
Wyman added - "The word that seemed to permeate the surroundings on the shoot for 2 days was fun... everyone wanted to have fun."
