Movie Info

Throughout his three-decade career as a founding member of and bassist for The Rolling Stones, Bill Wyman was known to the world as the "quiet one" in the band. Now, the famously private music legend speaks out about his extraordinary life and experiences as part of "the greatest rock and roll band in the world." Opening up his vast personal archive-a lifetime's worth of previously unseen home movies, photographs, and memorabilia-Wyman reflects on his early years with The Stones, the band's meteoric rise to fame, and his search for a sense of "normalcy" amidst the whirlwind of sex, drugs, and rebellion. Endearingly humble and down-to-earth, Wyman pulls back the curtain to offer a one-of-a-kind perspective on life as a reluctant rock star.

  • The Quiet One isn't a bad documentary on Bill Wyman, the bassists for The Rolling Stones from 1962 to 1993, or a bad documentary in general. It just suffers from arriving too late to the party to add much to a well-worn story.

  • He's too murmurously quiet and utterly unforthcoming to make a great cinema subject, but his life of sex and rock 'n' roll (no drugs for him) is quite a trip, and you may find some surprises...

  • Once the quiet one, always the quiet one.

  • More crucial than even concert recordings is footage of Wyman silently at work...preserving artifacts for the generations who will want to learn all about what his friends accomplished.

  • "One" isn't out for blood, electing to care for Wyman's legacy, receiving an enviable opportunity to pore through the musician's treasures.

  • Unfortunately, it might have made for a better movie if its subject had opened up something more than just his attic.
