The long-awaited documentary on former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman will be among the rock docs premiering at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival, which runs from from April 24th to May 5th.
According to director Ollie Murray’s website (OllieMurray.com), “The Quiet One provides a behind-the-scenes look at the highs and lows of the life and career of Bill Wyman, former founding member of the Rolling Stones and renaissance man of rock and roll. Using Bill’s personal archive and including interviews with Bill’s family, band-mates and friends, the film provides a fresh insight into the reality behind the myths and legends of music’s rock and roll years as we explore the experiences and stories of an amusing, engaging and down-to-earth man; often simply called ‘The Quiet One.'”
The movie is currently in post-production.
Bill Wyman retired from the Stones in 1991 and recently successfully battled back against prostate cancer. Although Wyman is no longer a partner in the Stones franchise, he is considered the band’s primary in-house historian and still contributes to their archival projects
