A documentary celebrating the Rolling Stones‘ 50th anniversary is to air on HBO, home of The Sopranos and The Wire, this autumn.
In a statement, HBO President of Programming Michael Lombardo said: “This is all done as part of the band’s 50th anniversary. This documentary has the full involvement of the four current band members – Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ron – as well as the former band members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor. We’ll follow the band from their early club days through their arrival as the greatest band in the world.”
Speaking in March to Rolling Stone, director Brett Morgan, best known for The Kid Stays In The Picture, said: “Nobody has put the story together as a narrative. We’ve been looking under every rock, going through their archives. It will be music never heard before, and I’ve conducted 50-plus hours of interviews so far. By the time we’re done, they will be the most extensive group interviews they’ve ever done.”
