Green Ice

Album details

Release date: May 1, 1981

Format: CD


Bill Wyman is famed for his time with the Rolling Stones – but his musical career stretches beyond that of the Stones’ bass player. Bill has composed various film scores, including for Green Ice, the 1981 Omar Sharif-Ryan O’Neal film.

This rare recording shows Bill stretch his musical muscle and venture into the world of composing cinematic scores. Bill also composed the scores for the films Phenomena and Terror At The Opera in the 1980s.
