Keith Richards Documentary ‘Under the Influence’

Share This:

keith-richards-1112x741The Rolling Stones may have wrapped up their most recent flurry of activity with the end of their Zip Code tour back in July, but that shouldn’t leave fans feeling bereft. After all, Keith Richards releases his third solo album, Crosseyed Heart, September 18, 2015. And along with it comes a new documentary, Keith Richards: Under The Influence, directed by Morgan Neville, who won an Academy Award last year for Best Documentary Feature for his acclaimed look at the role of back-up singers in popular music, 20 Feet From Stardom. His previous films include Muddy Waters: Can’t Be Satisfied, The Stax Records Story, and Johnny Cash’s America.

The movie is only available via Netflix, and its title refers to the spell music has cast on Richards’ life and the inspiration he gets from the musical legends that he admires (and not his prodigious capacity for getting buzzed in the past, a film we’d pay good money to see… oh wait, there’s already the as yet still-not-officially released 1972 Stones tour document Cocksucker Blues). The advance word and trailer below indicate that it shows Richards being as disarmingly open about himself as he was in his autobiography Life. It promises to fill in some of the backstory on making Crosseyed Heart and continue to inform on how his deep musical influences have powered Richards’ creative energy for more than five decades.
