King worked closely with Director Jon Brewer for 2 years to create this 
powerful film. The  heartfelt contributions from a plethora of music's 
superstars were a  vast indication that this was the time for his story to be told. 
At 88  years old, King, his  family, friends and contemporaries unveil the 
true-life drama that was  the springboard for the future 'King of the Blues'.




Battling unrelenting racism and the humiliation of segregation  whilst 
working in the cotton fields as an orphaned child, King  lived to overcome the 
toughest critics in the entertainment industry and  ultimately be hailed as 
one of the kingpins of an entire genre of music.  This candid biopic of the 
life story of one of our living legends is  highlighted by rare archive 
footage and beautifully shot scenes of the  deep American south. Informative and 
visually stunning, The Life of Riley is the definitive document of a true 
American  treasure.

 

"We all have idols," said King.  "Play like anyone you care about, but try 
to be yourself while you're  doing so."




The Life of Riley includes appearances and  contributions from: Aaron 
Neville, Bill Cosby, Bill Szymczyk, Bill  Wyman, Bono, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce 
Willis, Buddy Guy, Carlos Santana,  Carver Randle, Derek Trucks, Dr. John, Eric 
Clapton, George Benson, Joe  Bonamassa, Joe Walsh, John Mayer, John Mayall, 
Johnny Winter, Jonny  Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Mick Taylor, Morgan Freeman, 
Paul Rodgers,  Rev. David Matthews, Ringo Starr, Ronnie Wood, Slash,, Susan 
Tedeschi,  Tina France, Walter Trout, and Wayne Cartledge. 

The DVD and Blu-ray release features live footage from  the Royal Albert 
Hall, some of which includes special guests Ronnie  Wood, Susan Tedeshci, 
Derek Trucks, Mick Hucknell, and Slash. In  addition, there are bonus interviews 
from Buddy Guy, Mick Hucknell &  Ronnie Wood, Bonnie Raitt, Derek Trucks, 
Bobby Bland, Walter Trout,  Susan Tedeschi, Carlos Santana, Joe Bonamassa, Dr 
John, John Mayall,  Slash, and Leon Russell.



The Life of Riley Original Soundtrack, available digitally on  May 20, 
2014, carefully follows the specifically chosen music sequence  used in the 
film. The soundtrack contains career spanning so0.0.0
