The Rolling Stones will celebrate 60 years as one of the world’s most famous rock bands with a special four-part docuseries.
“My Life as a Rolling Stone” will dive deep into the lives of each member including singer Mick Jagger, guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Woods, and late drummer Charlie Watts. It will premiere on Aug. 7 on EPIX.
“This distinctive documentary captures the raw and organic energy that defines The Rolling Stones, and tells the gripping, epic story of their journey. I am excited for viewers to experience this legendary band as few ever have before,” Michael Wright, president of EPIX, said Tuesday in a statement.
The docuseries is directed by Oliver Murray and Clare Tavernor, and executive produced by Steve Condie, senior VP of content at Mercury Studios. It is being produced by Mercury Studios.
The documentary will “reveal The Rolling Stones’ creativity, their inspirations, and how they individually and collectively have overcome adversity, notoriety and personal demons to write the soundtrack of our times,” the producers said in a statement.
The Rolling Stones are currently in the middle of their 2022 European “Sixty” tour. Jagger recently tested positive for COVID-19, causing the band to reschedule their June 13 show in Amsterdam and their June 17 show in Switzerland.
