The Quiet One - A Documentary about Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones

When people think about the Rolling Stones Mick Jagger and Keith Richard usually come to mind.  Only music enthusiasts are aware of bassist Bill Wyman.  He narrates this documentary directed by Oliver Murray.  The film is derived from archives that Wyman compiled over decades.  It shows how it became interested in music and his involvement with the Rolling Stones.  Some concert footage is shown but is mostly autobiographical including his ill-fated marriage to Mandy Smith and his friendship with artist Marc Chagall.

I highly recommend it to my music enthusiast friends, but it is being shown at limited theaters.  Karen and I had to go to Greenwich Village to see it at the IFC Center.
