We’re not only celebrating 50 years of bad boy James Bond this year, but it’s also the 50th year of rock ‘n roll bad boys, the Rolling Stones. These may be old guys, but they’re still fascinating to watch.
To recognize the Stones’ impressive milestone, on November 15, HBO is showing its new documentary, CROSSFIRE HURRICANE.
About the film, director Brett Morgan says, “This is not an academic history lesson,” but an opportunity to “experience firsthand the Stones’ nearly mythical journey from outsiders to rock & roll royalty.”
The band also debuted a tour documentary THE ROLLING STONES: CHARLIE IS MY DARLING — IRELAND 1965 as part of the New York Film Festival on September 29.
With these kinds of films available, along with all the archival clips being rolled out on the official Rolling Stones YouTube channel, it’s time to plan your own at-home Stones party. After watching old friends Mick, Keith, and the gang go from fresh faced to craggy, still legends, still appealing, everyone will want to get up and dance when you start playing “Satisfaction.”
