He executive-produced many other projects and music documentaries, including 2008 concert film Shine a Light, directed by Martin Scorsese, Rock the Kasbah, Beowulf, Sylvester Stallone-starrer Get Carter, 2011 comedy Girl Walks into a Bar, and Warren Beatty's 2016 romantic film Rules Don't Apply.

Bing is survived by his two children. He was famously in a brief relationship with actress Elizabeth Hurley, with whom he had a son named Damian. He was also in a relationship with former tennis player Lisa Bonder, with whom he had a daughter, Kiara.
I loved Steve Bing very much. He had a big heart, and he was willing to do anything he could for the people and causes he believed in. I will miss him and his enthusiasm more than I can say, and I hope he’s finally found peace.
