Keith Richards: The Origin Of The Species Documentary Coming

Rolling Stones

(Classic Rock) The early life of Rolling Stones icon Keith Richards is to be the subject of an upcoming BBC documentary. The guitarist will star in the Julien Temple-directed film Keith Richards: The Origin Of The Species which will air on BBC2 on July 29.

The BBC report the documentary focuses on the period up until the birth of the Rolling Stones and forms the centrepiece of the network's My Generation season, which explores the history of pop music.

Richards says in the film: "There was a feeling late 50s/early 60s that there was a change coming. Harold Macmillan actually said it - the 'winds of change' and all that - but he didn't mean it in quite the same way.

"I certainly felt that for my generation, what was happening and the feeling in the air was - it's time to push limits. The world is ours now and you can rise or fall on it." Read more here.
