It is a combination of a football game

THE MOST TIGHT-LIPPED MEMBER OF THE ROLLING STONES
FINALLY OPENS UP
THE QUIET ONE 
Comes to DVD on Oct. 1, 2019
 
“A banquet for Stones aficionados” – Joel Selvin, San Francisco Chronicle

Throughout his three-decade career as a founding member of and bassist for The Rolling Stones, Bill Wyman was known to the world as the “quiet one” in the band. Now, in
THE QUIET ONE, the famously private music legend speaks out about his extraordinary life and experiences as part of “the greatest rock and roll band in the world.” Opening up his vast personal archive – a lifetime’s worth of previously unseen home movies, photographs and memorabilia – Wyman reflects on his early years with The Stones, the band’s meteoric rise to fame, and his search for a sense of “normalcy” amid the whirlwind of sex, drugs, and rebellion. Endearingly humble and down to earth, Wyman pulls back the curtain to offer a one-of-a-kind perspective on life as a reluctant rock star who let his pulsating bass do all the talking on “Brown Sugar,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Paint It Black” and countless other Stones classics.
 

THE QUIET ONE also includes interviews with Eric Clapton, Bob Geldof, and Stones record producer Andrew Oldham and engineer Glyn Johns. The

San Francisco Chronicle‘s Joel Selvin said, “After umpteen previous documentaries, concert films and video biographies, that this film consists almost entirely of previously unseen footage of the band qualifies as something of a minor miracle.” Al Alexander of

The Patriot Ledger wrote, “You get the feeling Wyman has seen it all from the perspective of both a participant and an observer. And he has the photos and home movies to prove it.” Glenn Kenny, writing in

The New York Times, called the film “an engaging documentary.”
