The Rolling Stones are coming to HBO.  The pay channel has announced that they have will be showing a documentary on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band titled The Rolling Stones: The Greatest Rock & Roll Band in the World.

The announcement was made at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour by HBO President of Programming Michael Lombardo and Richard Plepler with Lombardo adding “This is all done as part of the band’s 50th anniversary. This documentary has the full involvement of the four current band members – Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ron – as well as the former band members Bill Wyman and Nick Taylor. We’ll follow the band from their early club days through their arrival as the greatest band in the world.”

The director of the film Brett Morgan added in a recent Rolling Stone Magazine piece,” Nobody has put the story together as a narrative. We’ve been looking under every rock, going through their archives. It will be music never heard before, and I’ve conducted 50-plus hours of interviews so far. By the time we’re done, they will be the most extensive group interviews they’ve ever done.”

Look for the showing sometime in the fall.
