VIDEO: Keith Richards previews Under The Influence documentary

Keith Richards has issued the trailer for the documentary, “Under The Influence”, ahead of its September 17 premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The project will then see its broadcast debut on Netflix on September 18 – the same day Richards’ first solo album in more than three decades, “Crosseyed Heart”, hits stores.

Directed by Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom, Best Of Enemies), the film is billed as “an unprecedented look into the sounds and influences of rock and roll icon Keith Richards.”

“If there’s a Mount Rushmore of Rock ’n’ Roll, Keith’s face is surely on it,” says Neville. “He has always represented the soul of rock music—for all of the light and dark shades that implies. To my relief, Keith Richards turned out to be a real man—full of humor, knowledge and wisdom. That’s the real Keith we’ve worked to capture in our film and I’m honored to bring it to a global audience via Netflix.”

“Under The Influence” visits many of the places that have inspired the Rolling Stones guitarist, including Chicago, Nashville and New York, with guest appearances from fellow artists like Tom Waits.

Neville also directed the video for “Trouble”, the lead single from “Crosseyed Heart.”
