What is Your Favorite Rockumentary?

Postby landshark » 19 Aug 2011, 20:09

I don’t know what the deal is but since I have gotten the ability to see youtube on my phone I have been addicted to watching Music documentaries (Rockocumentaries). I have seen jimi hendrix, Kurt Cobain, and Joy Division (Don’t worry I don’t have any suicidal tendencies), maybe I’ll watch one about them next. :beatnik:

I guess I should be a little more careful when talking about the master jimi hendrix. :oops:


Here is what Clapton had to say about Hendrix death:

Hendrix played right-handed guitars upside down. While browsing through some instrument shops in the West End, Clapton found a white, left-handed Stratocaster and bought it for Hendrix. Clapton took the guitar to a Sly and the Family Stone concert at the Lyceum that night, expecting to see Jimi and give him the guitar. But Hendrix never showed up.

“The next day, I heard that he had died,” Clapton writes. “He had passed out, stoned on a mixture of booze and drugs, and choked on his own vomit. It was the first time the death of another musician really affected me. We had all felt obliterated when Buddy Holly died, but this was much more personal. I was incredibly upset and very angry, and was filled with a feeling of terrible loneliness.” :notworthy:

Sorry, landshark. I'm going to edit your title from Rockocumentary to Rockumentary. I'm not averse to an extra little bit of "koc" and don't want to be accused of being a vocabulary Nazi, but I think that rockumentary is the correct term. :D
