Rolling Stones fans have a special treat awaiting them on Valentine's Day. The legendary British rocker's documentary 'Crossfire Hurricane' will come to the small screen on Feb. 14 at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT via AXS TV.
AXS TV announced they will air the critically acclaimed 2012 film via a press release posted on Jan. 17. 'Crossfire Hurricane' details the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's tumultuous rise to rock superstardom from their formative years as blues cover band in 1962 to their commercial peak in 1981.
Directed by Brett Morgan ('Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, 'On the Ropes'), the Emmy nominated documentary was one of a number of projects undertaken by The Stones during their 50th anniversary celebrations in 2012. 'Crossfire Hurricane' features interviews with current members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ron Wood, as well as with former lead guitarist Mick Taylor, ex-bassist Bill Wyman and archival footage of the late Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones.
“Over the last 50 years, few bands have been as important and influential as The Rolling Stones,” writes AXS TV’s senior vice president, programming and development Michele M. Dix in a AXS TV press release. “Crossfire Hurricane' provides a fascinating glimpse at one of their most defining periods, giving viewers a unique opportunity to hear these incredible stories from the band, themselves.
'Crossfire Hurricane' hit theaters in Oct. 18, 2012 and was released in digital, DVD and Blu-ray via Eagle Rock the following year. For more information, click here.
