VIDEO: Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart, and Keith Richards Celebrate Musician and Painter Ronnie Wood in ‘Somebody Up There Likes Me’ Trailer
Rock documentary for the Rolling Stones and Faces legend arrives in NovemberOctober 31, 2019
Two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Ronnie Wood gets celebrated by his bandmates in the trailer for the upcoming documentary “Somebody Up There Likes Me,” arriving in November.
Directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Mike Figgis (“Leaving Las Vegas”), the rock doc utilizes conversations with Ronnie himself to trace the music icon’s unlikely journey from the pubs of West London to becoming a central player and performer for acts like the Jeff Beck Group, the Faces, and the Rolling Stones.
“Ronnie Wood brought a sense of fun to it,” Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger says in the trailer with a laugh. “Something different.”
The film also features conversations with Ronnie’s family and some of his past and present bandmates, including Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Charlie Watts of the Stones and 2015 Stern Show veteran Rod Stewart of the Faces and Jeff Beck Group, as they offer their perspective on everything from Ronnie’s battles with drugs, alcohol, and even lung cancer to his undeniable talents as both a guitarist and painter.
“I wouldn’t change anything, except I’d do it with my eyes open a bit more,” Wood says (above).
“Somebody Up There Likes Me” opens Nov. 22 in select theaters.
