Jagger launches new Vinyl trailer

Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese have released a trailer for their TV drama series Vinyl.

It follows the launch of a first teaser in August, and features the Stooges’ classic I Wanna Be Your Dog in the background, while a voice-over says: “Think back to the first time you heard a song that made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, make you want to dance, or go out and kick somebody’s ass. That’s what I’m talking about.”

The show is set in the music industry in the 1970s, with broadcasting to commence on the HBO network in the US in January.

Jagger’s son James plays Kip Stevens, frontman of punk band Nasty Bits, as they make their way through “the drug and sex-fuelled music business as punk and disco are breaking out.”

Vinyl is executive-produced by the Rolling Stones frontman and his movie director friend, while the show will be run by Terrence Winter of Boardwalk Empire and The Sopranos fame.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
