    Keith Richards: Under the Influence, a new documentary about the Rolling Stones guitarist, will premiere via Netflix on September 18th. Filmmaker Morgan Neville, who recently won a "Best Documentary" Oscar for a documentary about backup singers called 20 Feet From Stardom and who directed Richards' recent "Trouble" music video, directed the film.


    Producers are promising an "unprecedented look" at Richards' influences, songwriting process and guitar playing in the documentary. The film, which was made as Richards prepared his first solo record in over two decades – Crosseyed Heart, due out the same day as the movie – culls from interviews, archival material and footage of him recording new music.

    "If there's a Mount Rushmore of Rock & Roll, Keith's face is surely on it," Neville said in a statement. "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."

    Richards' new record finds him collaborating with guitarist Waddy Wachtel and drummer/co-producer Steve Jordan, both of whom played on Richards' previous solo outings. It also features appearances by Norah Jones, Spooner Oldham, Aaron Neville and Larry Campbell. Late Stones saxophonist Bobby Keys will also appear on two tracks.

    "I had a ball making this new record and working with Steve Jordan and Waddy Wachtel again," Richards said in a statement at the time he released the "Trouble" video. "There's nothing like walking into a studio and having absolutely no idea what you're going to come out with on the other end. If you're looking for 'Trouble,' you've come to the right place."

    definitely a must-see

    The Wrecking Crew will begin streaming on Netflix this Thursday. It's the story of LA session musicians who played on almost every record that came out of LA in the late 60's - 70's.
