Stones story to get TV satisfaction?

Wyman publisher in talks with progam-makers

LONDON — Bill Wyman’s upcoming book, “The Rolling Stones,” could find its way on to the small screen.

Publisher Dorling Kindersley, which has the worldwide rights to the biography, told Daily Variety it is in talks to sell the TV rights to the tome, which tracks the history of rock’n’roll’s original bad boys from the early 60s to today.

A TV version of the book could entail either a documentary series or a dramatization.

Wyman, the band’s former bassist, kept a meticulous diary throughout his musical career, and first took on the story of the megagroup in 1990’s “Stone Alone: The Story Of A Rock’n’Roll Band.”

He quit in 1992, and this year the Stones are celebrating their 40th anniversary.

The new bio will be published worldwide in the fall of this year.
