HBO to Air Brand New Rolling Stones Documentary this Year -

As the Rolling Stones' 50th Anniversary looms a brand new HBO documentary set to air this year has been announced. 

The Stones gave their full cooperation to the film which has been directed by Brett Morgan and has the full involvement of both present and past member of the rock icons.

HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said of the upcoming rock-umentary

"This is all done as part of the band's 50th anniversary. This documentary has the full involvement of the four current band members, Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ron, as well as the former band members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor."

He continued: "We'll follow the band from their early club days through their arrival as the greatest band in the world."

'The Kid Stays in the Picture' director Brett Morgan helmed the project. "Nobody has put the story together as a narrative," He told Rolling Stone back in March. "We've been looking under every rock, going through their archives. It will be music never heard before, and I've conducted 50-plus hours of interviews so far. By the time we're done, they will be the most extensive group interviews they've ever done."

HBO are yet to announce an exact date as to when the documentary will air.
