Paul McCartney's 9/11 documentary to debut on US TV
David Bowie, Mick Jagger and Jay-Z also feature in 'The Love We Make'
Albert Maysles' The Love We Make, which features narration from The Beatles legend, will air on the Showtime network on September 10.
McCartney was on a grounded plane in New York City on the morning of the 9/11 attacks. The black and white documentary follows his personal journey in the days after the terrorist atrocity and his involvement in the Concert For New York City benefit gig.
David Bowie, Jay-Z, The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton are among the other musicians who feature in the film, along with former US president Bill Clinton and actor Harrison Ford, reports Parade.com.
Recalling his memories of the gig, McCartney said:
It was an honour to be able to help New York and America at that time in its history. There was a feeling of shock and fear in the air that I thought we could help alleviate with music. And the fact that so many people stepped up to join us made for a very uplifting evening for us all.
McCartney also features in an soon-to-be-released documentary about his Beatles bandmate George Harrison.
Martin Scorsese's Living In The Material World, which features unseen footage of the late guitarist, will be released on DVD on October 10.
