Thought there was a thread already on these.....couldn't find it. I really enjoyed this one and I am very interested in his music. His voice was like an instrument....just striking. Gonna explore more.

Found this on Netflix last night. TP generally bores me to tears, but I got swept up in the narrative. 4 hour doc flew by.....TP is as true to music as anyone I know. Bogdanovich directs.

I love R&R docs....I can enjoy a well done one on Def Leppard. Watched this one on Joe Cocker last night and can recommend highly.

So, I listened to Chicago a lot when I was just a kid. As I got older I knew Kath was revered by musicians far and wide, but I never knew Hendrix was in awe, once calling him the best he'd ever seen. High praise....watched this last night on Amazon Prime. Great doc. Kath's solo on 25 or 6 to 4 is disgusting.

Looking forward to this one when it comes it this summer.


Debbie Harry, Alice Cooper and more appear in the trailer for Suzi Q, a new film about pioneering female rock star Suzi Quatro, out this summer.

Directed by Liam Firmager, the documentary chronicles Quatro’s career, from her beginnings in Detroit to her breakthrough in 1973. “She was the first, and broke the ice and kicked the doors for us gals,” Cherie Currie says in the opening of the clip. “If people have overlooked her, that’s their fault.”

“A lot of girls had tried to be Suzi Quatro,” Cooper notes. “But when it’s in the DNA, you can’t fake that.” Adds Harry: “This woman has so much energy, so much talent. She could have done anything.”

The film also stars Joan Jett, Tina Weymouth, the GoGo’s Kathy Valentine, L7’s Donita Sparks and Henry Winkler — whom Quatro played opposite in Happy Days as Leather Tuscadero.

“Over the four-plus years making the film, the idea that Suzi’s status had been forgotten in the USA slowly dawned on us — because in the rest of the world everyone knows that she is the first and one of the most important trailblazers in rock and roll,” producer Tait Brady said in a statement. “And that then influenced the direction the film took — it became our mission to redress history.”

Here's a list for those who like a good R&R bio or autobio. #5 is keith richards....I couldn't get through it, but there appear to be some potential gems.

This should be good!




Peter Jackson's documentary, Beatles:Get Back



The Beatles: Get Back, Peter Jackson’s documentary about the making of Let It Be, was delayed by the pandemic, so he and the studio have released a montage of about four minutes of the film as a sneak peek. The film, constructed from 55+ hours of largely unseen footage and 140 hours of audio recordings, seeks to portray the making of the band’s final studio album in a better light than previous accounts. The project has the support of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, and Olivia Harrison and will out in August 2021. (via ted gioia)

Watched the Bee Gees doc last night. Was actually really moved. I was born in '70, so they were the soundtrack to my early life i.e. hearing them played at home or on the radio. Was surprised at how long they'd been around--they had multiple lives--had a Beatles-esque run in the 60s, early 70s, and then the Saturday Night Fever phenom. An interesting aside was a comment a interviewee shared about a White Sox game where fans could bring "disco" records to burn, but were in fact just bringing a range of Black music. HIs point being--the disco sucks thing was basically just racism (and homophobia) rearing its head as one of the lead voices in that "movement" was a white dude who today would likely be categorized as an incel--fans rushed the field the night they had the record burning. Worth watching for that historical side note.

And....I just finished the first season of the New Order/Joy Division podcast, which is stellar, and I highly recommend.

That disco sucks record burning incident was also in the soundbreaking documentary (very highly recommended btw).

But it was Nile Rodgers talking about it.

How that (indeed racist) incident destroyed Chic's career

I really enjoyed this even though I don't really enjoy the Cosmic Psychos' music.



note the connection there to The Prodigy via L7!

Steve Dahl the radio dj in that disco demolition is still on the air in Chicago with his podcast. I never really listened to him because there were a lot of options
for talk radio in the mid to late 80's and 90's. Then Howard got syndicated and sports radio became a thing. Dahl got fired because the radio station he was working
at changed formats from rock to disco. White Sox offered .98 cents to see a double header if you brought a disco record. The Loop radio station was 97.9.
