Topic: McCartney Recruits 'Gimme Shelter' Director For Concert For New York Film Return to archive

Bridges To Stones By Jon Wiederhorn

Filmmaker Albert Maysles, who 31 years ago Thursday (December 6) debuted the documentary "The Rolling Stones: Gimme Shelter," chronicling the Rolling Stones' infamous 1969 tour that ended in tragedy at Altamont Speedway (which occurred 32 years ago Thursday), has confirmed he is working on a new film about Paul McCartney and the Concert for New York City.

Held on October 20 at New York's Madison Square Garden, the event was organized to raise funds for the families of police officers and firefighters killed in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. McCartney, Backstreet Boys (news - web sites), Destiny's Child, Jay-Z, Elton John, the Who, David Bowie, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and many others performed at the show.

Maysles shot miles of footage of McCartney, starting five days before the concert up until the actual event. McCartney asked Maysles to film in black and white, as he did in 1964 when he shot the Beatles for the movie "Beatles: The First U.S. Visit," which was produced for Britain's Granada Television and released on video in the U.S. in 1991.

The documentarian has said he will spend the next six months editing the Concert for New York footage.

He has worked on other music films in the past, including "Monterey Pop" in 1968 and "The Grateful Dead Movie" in 1976. "Gimme Shelter" is his most well-known movie, though, largely because it captured the tumult and violence of the Altamont concert, including a man in the crowd being fatally stabbed by a member of the Hell's Angels, who were hired by the Stones to handle security at the event.

the lepper While for a great cause, the concert for New York hardly seems to be documentary- worthy. I guess the behind the scenes stuff might be kinda interesting, but the bands that played and the music itself was very ordinary. (OK- the Who were good) Is this all about Sir Paul making himself look good? I hate to be so pessimistic, but it just wasn't all that newsworthy.

Joey The entire event is documentary worthy due to the Who's performance and Pete Townshend doing that " Tap Tap Tap " thing on his Axe .

" Tap Tap Tap Me Ronnie "

Mathijs If McCartney hires Maysels for a documentary, he should hire some angels and a black dude with a gun and a girl friend in a crochet dress. Then he would have all the ingredients for a legendary documentary, instead of the mediocre and boring music of that night. Or will it be a 15 minute documentary, with only Bowies set and Salt of The Earth?
