The Rolling Stones fifty years ago
Listen up all you honky tonk women and street fighting men! In what should be sweeter than brown sugar for fans of the legendary rock band, Eagle Rock Entertainment is set to release a brand new documentary as part of the Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary celebrations.
Unlike any other documentary before it, this will be the first film to trace the roots of the band back to 1963, giving fans an in-depth look at the evolution of one of the most successful groups of the past century. "We are thrilled to continue our relationship with the Rolling Stones and help to bring this extraordinary documentary film to millions of fans," said Terry Shand, Eagle Rock chairman and CEO.
The film will be directed by Academy Award nominee Brett Morgen of “The Kids in the Picture” fame, and promises plenty of never before seen footage given access to him by the band, along with plenty of reminiscing from the Stones themselves. "For anyone who wants to experience the band, this is the film that will defy convention and create a sonic tapestry to transport viewers into the world of the Rolling Stones," said Morgen. "The film will deliver the original, bold, sexy and dangerous flavor of the iconic rock band."
Look out for the documentary when the Stones hit thier golden anniversary on July 12.
