Du bonbon / Candy

Un excellent documentaire pour les amateurs de musique, histoires tragiques, succès. J'ai vu le film au cinéma et j'ai été complètement enthousiasmée.
A very good documentary with the musical actors/artists, the musicians who were kids, the producer. I loved it so I bought the CD but I will buy the film, it is very good. I saw it at the theater and was completely amazed.

Bigger than Grohl's movie

Sound City was about the cool LA factor. This is about how the people shaped the music.

Great film

Great music, great cinematography, great viewing.
