My Life As A Rolling Stone is an intimate four-part docuseries profiling the iconic rock band The Rolling Stones. Premiering on EPIX in 2022, each episode takes an in-depth look at the lives and careers of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and the late Charlie Watts.

Spanning over 60 years together, The Rolling Stones are one of the most successful and enduring bands in music history. My Life As A Rolling Stone provides unprecedented access into the personal lives of these rock legends through new interviews, archival footage, and audio recordings. It offers a revealing portrait of what it means to be part of one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

The first episode focuses on frontman Mick Jagger. It chronicles his middle class upbringing, early obsession with rhythm and blues music, and fateful encounter with Keith Richards as a teenager. Jagger's tremendous talent, ambition, and showmanship were instrumental in propelling the band to stardom. The episode also explores Jagger's complex love life, his status as a cultural icon, and his drive to keep performing today at age 79.

Keith Richards takes the spotlight in episode two. It documents his childhood friendship with Jagger growing up in post-war England, bonding over a mutual love of blues records. Richards' stellar guitar chops, raw vocals, and prolific songwriting skills composed the musical heart of the Rolling Stones. The episode delves into Richards' hedonistic lifestyle of drugs and women during the band's peak years, his turbulent relationship with Jagger, and his resilience in overcoming adversity.

Episode three centers on Ronnie Wood. It follows his early work with bands like The Birds and Faces, replacing Mick Taylor on guitar in the Stones in 1975. Wood brought renewed energy and creativity to the band's sound. The episode also discusses Wood's alcohol and drug addictions, his sobriety later in life, and his close friendship with Richards as the two have anchored the Rolling Stones' guitar sound for over 45 years together.

The final episode pays tribute to the late Charlie Watts. It explores his jazz background, irreplaceable rhythmic beat on drums, and integral role holding down the band musically for nearly 60 years. Watts' shy, dry-witted personality complemented the outgoing flamboyance of Jagger and Richards. The episode celebrates Watts' musical brilliance and steady presence amidst the chaos of being a Rolling Stone.
