Best Documentary EVAR
I love this movie!
This documentary's got everything!
I was lucky enough to be shooting live shots of the amazing Nils Lofgren for A&M in 1977, TP & The Heartbreakers were the unknown support act, they blew everyone away and I got some great shots that night. Peter Bogdanovitch's 4 hour documentary is without doubt one of the most insightful and revealing rock documentaries ever made, it shows every side of the music business from the highs of the sublime music to the lows of the greedy record companies. The behind the scenes recording studio sessions and the candid interviews with everyone involved over a 30 year period are a true revelation and tell the extraordinary story of one of the greatest, most influential and controversial musicians of all time!
While watching this movie I gained an incredible amount of respect for a talented, intelligent, thoughtful musician. And when Tom Petty & The heartbreaker toured Australia with Bob Dylan- WOW! Terrific movie to watch for anyone who has enjoyed TPs music over the years - which has gotta include everyone - runnin' down a dream....
