The Rolling Stones will release their career-spanning documentary Crossfire Hurricane on DVD and Blu-ray on May 21st. The film, which was directed and compiled by Brett Morgen, premiered last year on HBO and features never before seen footage of the band spanning their 50 year career. Crossfire Hurricane features newly conducted interviews with past and present band members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ron Wood, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor. Late co-founder Brian Jones is featured through archival interviews.
Bonus features on the disc include previously unreleased concert footage -- Live In Germany '65, the Stones' performances from the 1964 and 1965 NME Poll Winners concert in London, a new interview with director Brett Morgen, a featurette called "The Sound And Music Of Crossfire Hurricane," footage from the Stones' early-1964 appearance on British program The Arthur Haynes Show, along with the Crossfire Hurricane theatrical trailer.
- After 50 years in the spotlight, Mick Jagger, feels that people still don't comprehend that despite having a family and other interests, fronting the Stones isn't the only thing going on in his life: "Sometimes people find it hard to understand that you could be all of these things at once (laughs). And y'know, people put their own image on you, y'know, like they do on an actor or actress, or any other popular figure. They put their own idea on you. And that's what you're for, just a personal interpretation."
