Open iTunes to preview, buy and download this film.
This superb new film tells the story of The Rolling Stones’ unparalleled journey from blues obsessed teenagers in the early sixties to their undisputed status as rock royalty. All of The Rolling Stones have been newly interviewed and their words form the narrative arc that links together archive footage of performances, news coverage and interviews, much of it previously unseen. Taking its title from a lyric in “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”, “Crossfire Hurricane” gives the viewer an intimate insight into exactly what it’s like to be part of The Rolling Stones as they overcome denunciation, drugs, dissensions and death to become the definitive survivors. Over a year in the making and produced with the full co-operation and involvement of The Rolling Stones, “Crossfire Hurricane” is and will remain the definitive story of the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band.
Year ..great film ..if you're a Stones fan you'll love..can be a tad 'dark' with the hard drug thing , however that's how it was.
The only thing I would question is the HD version v SD version ... I see little reason , if any, to pay the extra for HD as all the somewhat low definition footage is from the sixties and early seventies .
Been on tv!
This was on bbc2 just before Christmas , good though .
