Kindersley in talks to sell rights to Stones' bio

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

Publisher Dorling Kindersley, which has the worldwide rights to the biography, told 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 his 1990 book “Stone Alone: The Story of a Rock ‘n’ Roll Band.” His new book will be published worldwide this fall.
