Ronnie Wood has lived quite a life. From the Faces to the Jeff Beck Group and, of course, the Rolling Stones, Wood has entertained the masses for decades as a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist (in addition to being a vocal advocate for sobriety and an accomplished painter, which he discussed with Rock Cellar’s Jeff Slate in June 2020).

His journey hasn’t been without its ups and downs, however, and they’ll all be covered in a new documentary film titled Somebody Up There Likes Me. Directed by Mike Figgis, the film will be available in ‘virtual cinemas’ beginning on Sept. 18, with a Blu-ray release scheduled for a few weeks later.

Additional details on the film, per its official website — where you can also find information regarding tickets for its ‘virtual cinema’ release:

This Mike Figgis directed documentary film is an intimate portrait of legendary Rolling Stones musician Ronnie Wood today as an artist, musician and survivor.

A man still at the cutting edge in his seventies, the film tells the story from his humble beginnings in north London, where his older brothers shaped the musical powerhouse he would become, to the unique career that has not only spanned over 50 years (so far) but also traversed some of the most influential musicians the world has ever known including The Birds, Jeff Beck, The New Barbarians, Rod Stewart, The Faces and of course The Rolling Stones.

Ronnie guides us on a journey through his life –painting and performing, accompanied by the friends, musicians and artists who have been part of his life over the years including Damian Hirst, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Imelda May and Rod Stewart.
