    The end of “12 bars”, the bit about Connor was so harrowing!

    There was the movie about Chess Records called "Cadillac Records". But that's not a documentary. It had Beyonce and Jeffrie Wright in it. It was better than I expected it to be.

    I can't believe I forgot to mention Muscle Shoals - I just bought a copy of that for my buddy because he hadn't seen it.

    I need to make the hour trek to check the place out...my ex-wife grew up about a mile away from Fame Studios...she could have cared less about all the history and music that is/has been created there...hence, one of the multitude of reasons she is and will always be, "plaintiff #2"o_O

    These are all great Music Docs! Thanks to the OP for the thread! :cool:

    Start around :55 seconds. This applies to you if you're only an hour away.

    That’s for sure. I was some what shocked on how brutally honest it was. Especially since he was involved. Most artists/stars wouldn’t show all of the warts.

    Absolutely, how many musicians would allow images of them drug taking to be filmed!

    I think it’s part of his recovery.

    You're right! I knew there was something about that memory that didn't completely jive. My mistake.

    No. You need to get fully edumacted.

    Bumping this...
    Netflix has Echo In The Canyon available right now. It's a doc about the rise of singer songwriters in Laurel Canyon back in the 60's/70's. It's hosted by Jakob Dylan and features interviews with Jackson Browne, Tom Petty, Eric Clapton, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Brian Wilson, Ringo Starr, Roger McGuinn, Michelle Philips, John Sebastian and Lou Adler. There's also a concert sprinked throughout with Jakob playing with various other performers including Beck, Fiona Apple, Nora Jones and Cat Power among others. I honestly could do without Jakob's concert and I find him a very dry interviewer, but the magic as always, is with the stories from back in day. I wish they would have added others that lived there like Linda Ronstadt and Joni Mitchell however. David Crosby telling the story of him getting booted from Birds is worth viewing all by itself!

    I just saw the promo for this. They were interviewing Michelle Philips for the trailer. It looks very interesting.

    For my money, this can’t be recommended highly enough.
