2015 – Check out the new trailer and key art for Netflix Original Documentary Keith Richards: Under the Influence premiering on Friday, September 18, exclusively to Netflix members worldwide.
The film is a beautifully documented portrait of Keith Richards that takes us on a journey to discover the genesis of his sound as a songwriter, guitarist and performer.
Keith Richards: Under the Influence is unparalleled in its access as it looks at one of the architects of rock ’n’ roll music, while charting his sound and influences, back to the music that inspired him then and now — electric blues, country honky-tonk, southern soul, and more – as he creates his first solo album in 23 years.
A culmination of both new and beloved music, rare archival materials and hours of intimate and reflective conversations with Keith, the film documents his long and unusual path to become the legend we all love.
In Keith Richards: Under the Influence, we visit key people and places that have always enchanted Keith and inspired his music with The Rolling Stones to his latest solo record: Chicago, home of the blues, where Keith first encountered Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and the hallowed halls of Chess Records; Nashville, where Keith explores his long love of country music; and New York where Keith recorded the album and collaborated with the likes of Steve Jordan and Waddy Wachtel. And along the way, we get an additional dose of inspiration from a long-time friend, Tom Waits. Lastly, this film is a chance to sit at the feet of one of music’s most iconic and least understood figures. The Keith Richards we get to know is smart, funny, poignant and profound.
