The members of The Rolling Stones have given numerous interviews to promote the group’s most recent album, Hackney Diamonds, but now fans will get a deeper look into the recording process in a new documentary titled The Stones: Still Rolling. According to Variety, the movie, which was made by Mercury Studios and Fulwell 73, was intended to be a one-hour television special. Mercury is seeking buyers for the documentary this week in Cannes, France, at the MIPCOM trade exhibition, which is centered on the TV industry, claims the website. Members of The Rolling Stones will participate in a “roundtable conversation” in the movie where they will discuss the making of Hackney Diamonds behind-the-scenes. As previously mentioned, a number of well-known musicians, including Paul McCartney, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder, and former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, make cameo performances on the album. Charlie Watts, the group’s veteran drummer who passed away in August 2021 at the age of 80, is featured on two of the album’s tunes. Paul Dugdale directed The Stones: Still Rolling. Several recent Rolling Stones concert movies and documentaries are among the prolific filmmaker’s works, including Sweet Summer Sun: Live in Hyde Park from 2013 and Havana Moon and Olé Olé Olé! : A Trip Across Latin America, both of which debuted in 2016.
Taylor Swift’s Reputation Stadium Tour, Jeff Lynne’s ELO: Wembley or Bust, and many more notable productions have been directed by Dugdale. Coldplay: Music of the Spheres – Live at River Plate, Sam Smith: Live at the Royal Albert Hall, Adele: One Night Only, Elton John: Live: Farewell from Dodger Stadium, and Coldplay: Live from Climate Pledge Arena. The four-part docuseries My Life as a Rolling Stone, which aired in the United States on EPIX in 2022, was also co-produced by Mercury Studios. Each hour-long episode of the show focused on a different band member, including Watts, guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, and singer Mick Jagger. Following the My Life as a Rolling Stone series from the previous year, Mercury Studios is thrilled to offer the lads in their current state as they work on their first new music in 18 years. Friday, October 20 marks the release of Hackney Diamonds. Watch a fresh interview with Wood this tonight on NBC’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to tide you over until then. This Friday’s show will also have Richards as a guest.
