Those interested should watch this ASAP, as it may be taken down at any moment:

Eat the Document (1966)

Image: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/3e/Eatthedocument.JPG
quote:

Eat the Document is a documentary of Bob Dylan's 1966 tour of the United Kingdom with the Hawks [NOTE: Levon Helm was not with the Hawks at this point, and does not appear in the film - K]. It was shot under Dylan's direction by D. A. Pennebaker, whose groundbreaking documentary Dont Look Back [sic] chronicled Dylan's 1965 British tour. The film was originally commissioned for the ABC television series ABC Stage 67.

Though shooting had completed for the film, Dylan's July 1966 motorcycle accident delayed the editing process. Once well enough to work again, Dylan edited the film himself. ABC rejected the film as incomprehensible for a mainstream audience.

It has never been released on home video and prints are rarely screened in theaters. Some footage from Eat the Document was used in Martin Scorsese's 2005 documentary on Bob Dylan, No Direction Home

Same here. The two big revelations for me was the way Billy Joel treated his first band and Rudy Sarzo's reminiscing about the day Randy Rhoads died along with the pics and video from the scene of the crash.

What is the documentary where a bass player (I believe) of an old hair metal band is being interviewed? He is shitfaced floating in a pool chair. His mom is sitting on the deck by him, and he chugs an entire 5th of vodka like water. Let's it run all,over his face. Before or after the chugging he says something to the effect that he knows he's going to die or is an alcoholic or doesn't care if he dies.

He died not long after the filming.

Played for a second tier hair band like Kroakus or WASP? I can't remember.




Chris Holmes of Wasp. He was the lead guitar player. He's very much alive.

Have to agree. This was up there with my top two music docs I’ve seen. The other would be the doc about Levon Helm, pretty sure that one was called “Ain’t in it for my Health”. Something like that. Both really good docs.

Just watched one on Netflix called 'Hired Gun'. It's about musicians that get hired to play on albums and on tours. I really recommend it.


I enjoyed this. It's interesting to see that side of the industry. It's neat to hear some of the more recognizable riffs or drum solos that were made up by a guy that is basically a nameless/faceless fill in for the band. But also cool to see how much some of the artists truly respect and appreciate those guys (Alice Cooper for example).

I think it was a guy who's now in Five Finger Death Punch that was the guitarist for Mandy Moore . Little things like that are interesting. And yes, Billy Joel appears to be an ass. I totally get that he's the star and he can plug someone else in. Just seems like he treated people who had been by his side for years like absolute shite.

Supersonic, the award-winning feature documentary, tells the phenomenal story of iconic band Oasis - in their own words. Featuring extensive unseen archive, the film charts the meteoric rise of Oasis from the council estates of Manchester to some of the biggest concerts of all time in just three short years. This palpable, raw and moving account shines a light on one of the most genre- and generation-defining British bands that has ever existed, and features footage of new interviews with Noel and Liam Gallagher, their mother and members of the band and road crew.

Let's Get Lost - youtube link
quote:

Let's Get Lost is a 1988 American documentary film about the turbulent life and career of jazz trumpeter Chet Baker written and directed by Bruce Weber.
quote:

A group of Baker fans, ranging from ex-associates to ex-wives and children, talk about the man. Weber's film traces the man's career from the 1950s, playing with jazz greats like Charlie Parker, Gerry Mulligan, and Russ Freeman, to the 1980s, when his heroin addiction and domestic indifference kept him in Europe. By juxtaposing these two decades, Weber presents a sharp contrast between the younger, handsome Baker — the statuesque idol who resembled a mix of James Dean and Jack Kerouac — to what he became, “a seamy looking drugstore cowboy-cum-derelict”, as J. Hoberman put it in his Village Voice review.

Let's Get Lost begins near the end of Baker's life, on the beaches of Santa Monica, and ends at the Cannes Film Festival. Weber uses these moments in the present as bookends to the historic footage contained in the bulk of the film. The documentation ranges from vintage photographs by William Claxton in 1953 to appearances on The Steve Allen Show and kitschy, low budget Italian films Baker did for quick money.

Let it Be - youtube link
quote:

Let It Be is a 1970 British documentary film starring the Beatles and directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg. The film documents the group rehearsing and recording songs for their twelfth and final studio album Let It Be, in January 1969. The film includes an unannounced rooftop concert by the group, their last public performance. Released just after the album in May 1970, Let It Be is the final original Beatles release.

The film was originally planned as a television documentary which would accompany a concert broadcast. When plans for a broadcast were dropped, the project became a feature film. Although the film does not dwell on the dissension within the group at the time, it provides some glimpses into the dynamics that would lead to their break-up.

Let It Be has not been officially available on home video since the 1980s, although original and bootleg copies of the film still circulate. The film's director, Michael Lindsay-Hogg, stated in 2011 that a DVD and Blu-ray were possibly going to be released sometime in 2013. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr collectively won an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score for the film

"Quincy", the documentary on Quincy Jones is excellent. Can't believe it hasn't been mentioned yet. He may be the greatest producer and composer combination in the history of this country. Created Michael Jackson as we knew him. and he played with all the greats from Count Basie to Dizzie Gillespie to Sinatra to Dr. Dre. Wrote literally thousands of songs.
