Rolling Stones, U2 in Muscle Shoals Documentary
Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, Stones guitarist Keith Richards and U2’s Bono are set to appear in Muscle Shoals, an upcoming documentary about the music that was recorded at two legendary recording studios in Muscle Shoals, Ala. The flick follows the competition between the city’s FAME Recording Studios and Muscle Shoals Sound Studio. Look for it to premiere Jan. 26 at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
Heaps of influential songs were recorded at either FAME or Muscle Shoals, including Aretha Franklin's “Do Right Woman,” The Stones' “Brown Sugar” and “Wild Horses,” the Staple Singers' “I'll Take You There,” Paul Simon's “Loves Me Like a Rock,” Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” and Bob Dylan's “Gotta Serve Somebody,” to name a few.
Other musicians that appear in the documentary include Gregg Allman, Franklin, Steve Winwood, Sledge and the late Etta James, FAME Studios founder Rick Hall and more. Alicia Keys also makes her mark in the film with a special performance of a tune Dylan first recorded in Muscle Shoals.
Those heading to Sundance will be able to catch Muscle Shoals at 3:30 p.m. local time at Eccles Theatre in Park City.
