BILL WYMAN'S DIGITAL DREAMS Classic Pictures (2005)
Reflections of a Stones bass player in 1983...

Bill Wyman

Though the DVD box is dated 2005, this film was actually made in 1983 with the result being that, in general, it all seems a little antiquated and twee now. This does not mean the film is un-enjoyable, though it is perhaps best left to those seeking a little nostalgia trip or, of course, keen fans of Bill Wyman.

We find Wyman at his desk documenting his life, from childhood days to the present (well, 1983) on a rather massive computer. This documenting process is punctuated by scenes of remembrance and fantasy (sketches starring James Coburn and Richard O’Brien among others). The fantasy aspect (and the terrible accompanying orchestral music) is in truth rather absurd, but the diary/ memoir aspect is of real interest for fans of Wyman, the ‘Stones and possibly even beyond. We get a picture of a tough though fairly regular life developing, dues to his undoubted talent, into a rather unique one – admittedly any fan would know all this already, but Wyman’s personality and involvement make this more genuinely engaging.

In short, fans of Wyman might want to buy it, fans of music may want to borrow it, and others probably don’t want to get involved.

** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
