ABC News RadioThe Rolling Stones were in New York City on Tuesday night for the U.S. premiere of their documentary, Crossfire Hurricane, which chronicles the rise of the band, beginning in the early 1960s. It debuts on HBO Thursday.
On the red carpet, frontman Mick Jagger said he is "pleased" with how the movie turned out. He added, "I think it's really good, it's really interesting. It will show a lot of things that people don't know even though they think they know but they don't."
It would be difficult for drummer Charlie Watts to agree, because he refuses to watch the film. He explained to ABC News Radio, "I won't stay and watch it now either because I don't like looking at myself."
As the Stones commemorate their 50th anniversary, they're preparing for five concerts in London and in the New York area over the next month. How are rehearsals coming along? Keith Richards declared, "We're in fifth gear now, baby....It's rocking."
