The Rolling Stones: Ronnie Wood documentary to premiere at Tribeca Film Festival

A new documentary about Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, entitled “Somebody Up There Likes Me”, will have its US premiere next month at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Billed as “the first in-depth film biography” of Wood, the project traces the career of the legendary rocker, who has been at the centre of rock ‘n’ roll and British music history for decades.

Interspersed with vintage performance footage of The Jeff Beck Group, The Faces and The Rolling Stones, the film traces Wood’s life from his upbringing in West London, where his father Arthur would fall asleep in neighbours’ gardens as Wood and his two brothers often awoke to find “characters draped over the furniture” who Arthur had brought home from the pub.

Directed by Mike Figgis, the documentary features brand new interviews with Wood’s Rolling Stones bandmates Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts, as well as his Faces bandmate Rod Stewart; other interviewees include his wife Sally Wood, singer Imelda May and artist Damien Hirst.

"Somebody Up There Likes Me" will premiere at Tribeca on April 16, with additional screenings on April 18 and April 23; for times and theater locations, visit tribecafilm.com.

Tickets for the screenings will go on sale Tuesday, March 17 at 11am ET.

Wood and The Rolling Stones will next be seen live on a summer tour of North America that will open in San Diego, CA on May 8.
