After 50 years together, The Rolling Stones are continuing to thrill audiences on their current 50 and Counting Tour. Fans can find out how it all began for the band by checking out the Crossfire Hurricane documentary, which hits stores on DVD and Blu-ray today. The film charts the history of the rock legends from their formation in the early 1960s through the arrival of guitarist Ronnie Wood in the mid-'70s.
The movie, which was directed by acclaimed filmmaker Brett Morgen , features candid new interviews with all four current Stones -- Mick Jagger , Keith Richards , Charlie Watts and Wood -- as well as with former members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor . The documentary also offers a bevy of rare and previously unreleased archival footage, including concert performances, TV appearances, news segments and more.
In addition, the DVD and Blu-ray discs boast several bonus features, including footage of the Stones performing in Germany in 1965 and at the NME Poll Winners concerts of 1964 and '65, as well as a 1964 appearance on the U.K. program The Arthur Haynes Show .
Crossfire Hurricane was given its theatrical premiere last October in London, and it debuted on U.S. television the following month as a two-part HBO special. The DVD sells for $14.98, while the Blu-ray is priced at $19.98. The film also is available for purchase as a digital download.
