In celebration of the Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release a documentary featuring revelations from the band. The film is the first to trace the evolution of the Rolling Stones’ from 1963. It will be showcased in September as part of the Rolling Stones 50th anniversary celebrations.
Directed by Brett Morgen and executive produced by the Rolling Stones, the documentary captures hours of never-before-seen footage and new interviews, revealing the band’s stories told through their eyes and their voices. The film takes fans on the road, in the studio, and behind the scenes to witness each band member’s personal, unfiltered perspective on the legendary life of the Rolling Stones – embarking on a journey through 50 years of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. “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.”
Thames & Hudson will release the only official and authorized book The Rolling Stones: 50 on July 12. The book features photography from the Daily Mirror ’s archive, most of it hitherto unseen. The photographic autobiography features images selected by the band accompanied by their own words.
