Richards then took on the project of creating a tribute to Chuck Berry by doing the film Hail! Hail! Rock N’ Roll. Berry was known to be impossible to work with and would always blame the band for mistakes on stage even when it was Berry doing something like changing keys in the middle of the song. There is a film clip where Berry goes over to Richards while playing on stage and tells him to change the key of the song they were playing and you can see Richards giving Berry an emphatic no. Berry just laughs.
The film finishes up with the Stones induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the some discussion about Richards appearing in the third Pirates of the Caribbean film as Jack Sparrow's father.
I have viewed a number of the under review series and this one, Keith Richards: Under Review, is by far the best. It contains a lot of information about one of the greatest influences on modern music, and it is done in a very complete and satisfying manner. The contributors have very detailed information and the presentation flows very smoothly.
A welcomed addition to Keith Richards: Under Review is the Celebrity Guitar Coach, Wolf Marshall. Throughout the film, he comes in with guitar in hand and explains by showing what was so unique about Richards playing style and how it sounded. This made a lot of difference, contributing to the excellence of the documentary.
I can highly recommend Keith Richards: Under Review for anyone who loves music, loves the history behind the music, or just wants to be entertained for a couple hours.
