The Rolling Stones: Bill Wyman doc The Quiet One gets theatrical release

“The Quiet One”, a new documentary on Rolling Stones founding member and bassist Bill Wyman will arrive in theaters on June 21.

Directed by Oliver Murray, the project – which had its world premiere this spring at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival – sees the famously private music legend speak out about his extraordinary life and experiences as part of “the greatest rock and roll band in the world.”

Opening up his vast personal archive – a lifetime’s worth of previously unseen home movies, photographs, and memorabilia – Wyman reflects on his early years with The Stones, the band’s meteoric rise to fame, and his search for a sense of “normalcy” amidst the whirlwind of sex, drugs, and rebellion.

“It’s very difficult to keep your sanity,” says Wyman in a newly-issued video trailer for the film.

“It is all of a bit of a haze to me,” adds guitarist Keith Richards in the preview. "If I want to know what I did in those years, I have to ask Bill Wyman.”

“The Quiet One” includes new interviews with Eric Clapton, former Stones manager and producer Andrew Loog Oldham, Bob Geldof, producer Glynn Johns and Mary Wilson of The Supremes.

Wyman joined The Stones in late 1962, a few months after the group formed. The bassist was in the band’s lineup for more than three decades; his last studio appearance was on 1989’s “Steel Wheels”, and he left after the accompanying world tour ended in 1990, although his departure wasn’t officially announced until 1993, with Darryl Jones stepping in as a touring and recording musician ever since.

Wyman continues to release solo albums and projects with Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings, which features a rotating lineup of players.

In addition to its theatrical release, “The Quiet One” will also be available via Video On Demand on June 28.
