HBO announced earlier this month that it would do a Rolling Stones documentary tied to the band’s 50th anniversary — it now has a name and air date. Crossfire Hurricane, directed by Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays In The Picture) will air November 15. The docu, done with the full cooperation of current and former band members, chronicles the Stones’ rise from the local club scene to worldwide stardom. The film “invites the audience to experience firsthand the Stones’ nearly mythical journey from outsiders to rock and roll royalty” says Morgen. Taking its title from a lyric in Jumping Jack Flash, Crossfire Hurricane looks into the lives of the band members “as they overcame denunciation, drugs, dissensions and death to become the definitive survivors”, HBO says. Riots and the chaos of early tours are depicted, as is the birth of the Jagger-Richards songwriting partnership. The doc also looks at the Redlands drug bust, the descent of Brian Jones into what Richards calls “bye-bye land,” and the terror and disillusionment of 1969’s Altamont Festival. Eagle Rock Entertaiment in London is distributing the docu. Tremelo Productions and Milkwood Films are producing.
