The Rolling Stones’ 60th anniversary is on the horizon and the UK’s BBC has announced plans to honour the massive milestone with a four-hour-long documentary series focused on the story of the band’s legendary members, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and late drummer, Charlie Watts.
Titled My Life as a Rolling Stone, the series promises unseen footage and new interviews with the band’s surviving members, along with archive footage of Charlie Watts. The series will also feature interviews with some of music’s biggest names, including Slash, Steven Tyler, Chrissie Hynde, Rod Stewart and Tina Turner.
“This Summer, the BBC will celebrate 60 glorious years of the Rolling Stones with a star-studded season of programming across television, radio and digital platforms,” the station announced in a statement, describing the upcoming series as “the story of one of the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll bands in a way that has never been done before – by viewing the band through the musical lens of each member, delving deep into their personalities, passions and memories from the past 60 years.”
Ultimately, showing "how these individual musical geniuses came together to make the music that has provided the soundtrack to the lives of millions.”
