Unmissable Rockumentaries

Some classics in this list of Unmissable Rockumentaries from

Who the fuck needs to go to over-priced gigs where the band’s about a mile away, where there are drunk assholes spilling drinks on you, where the beer costs an arm and a leg and tastes like piss, where you have to punch some moron for pinching your girlfriend’s ass, and where the bathroom – if you can find it – is blanketed with an ocean of urine and other unmentionables!

Stay home and watch these instead!

The seminal, magnificent, timeless Don’t Look Back has got to be on top of any list of music documentaries!

Not far behind – though not listed here – would be the infamous banned Stones film “Cocksucker Blues“, covering the band’s 1972 tour of the States in support of their greatest album Exile on Main Street.

The Rolling Stones – Cocksucker Blues extract

Another fine film in this genre which would be in our top ten is the Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds documentary The Road to God Knows Where (1990), a gritty film which explores the mundane reality of being a band touring the States in a bus!

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds – The Road to God Knows Where (1990)


18. Wattstax (1973)

“A soulful expression of the Black experience,” comments Richard Pryor in the first of many personal interludes on this disc. Shot at the Los Angeles Convention, the ’72 Wattstax Music Festival commemorated the seventh anniversary of the Watts Riots. Funk, Soul, Blues, Gospel, or R&B, the tickets were a buck and was the “African-American answer to Woodstock”. The Bar-Kays get my vote for “Best Band Wardrobe Ever.” Check it out to remind you that Blues is where Rock came from.

17. The Decline of Western Civilization Pt. II: The Metal Years (1988)

The second installment of director Penelope Spheeris rock-u-trilogy explores the glam-metal scene of Los Angeles in the mid 80s. We are talking teased hair, tight pants, jangly jewelry, and plenty of eye shadow. And that’s just the guys! This is an era of excess: sleazy chicks, monster riffs, and doped-up dudes. Watch this film for an interview with Ozzy where he’s cooking breakfast and actually speaking coherently.

16. D.O.A. (1980)

Chronicling the formative years of punk, this one is a bit hard to come by. Much like a shower is hard to come by for anyone in this film. Containing mostly footage of the Sex Pistols (their only North American tour before disbanding), this is a grimy, low-budget glimpse at the turning tide of the punk movement. And that low budget reality is the exact reason why it’s worth watching.

15. Heavy Metal in Baghdad (2008)

From VICE, this documentary follows Acrassicauda, an Iraqi heavy metal band in the middle of “the shit”. Homeboys had their practice space hit with a SCUD missile. These guys aren’t playing to get laid. They are playing to get out of the warzone. Then get laid. Watch this doc because it’s just an incredible story.

14. American Hardcore– 2006

The real stand out quality of American Hardcore is the photography. And the fact that a lot of the founding members of the movement are still breathing. The film takes you through the formative years of the Hardcore scene, interviewing big names like Rollins, Flea, and Moby as well as the obscure yet iconic likes of Keith Morris and Brian Baker. Watch it to get educated.

13. Funky Monks (1992)

The Red Hot Chili Peppers hole up in Houdini’s haunted mansion with the world’s biggest vegan, Rick Rubin, to record Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik. A penetrating look into the lives of the guys who once wore socks on their dorks. This clip shows a drum take from the song Breaking The Girl. Not since Sanford & Son has playing with trash worked so well. See if to remind you that dudes like Rick Rubin are what make Rock possible.

12. Stop Making Sense (1984)

This live performance by the Talking Heads, directed by the late Jonathan Demme*, is a no-frills affair. You soon realize that without said “gimmicks”, the performance speaks for itself. It’s also more of a conceptual concert movie than a rockumentary. There are no lasers, smoke machines, or quick cuts to bare breasts (unfortunately). Check it out to remind you how utterly acceptable it was to be a weirdo in the 80’s.

*Jonathan Demme has recently come back from the dead. He is a zombie.

11. End Of The Century: The Story of The Ramones (2004)

This is the definitive DVD of punk band The Ramones. Set over 22 years, the mop-topped rockers go from playing two-minute songs at CBGB’s to being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This clip is of Dee Dee Ramone’s brief venture into hip-hop. Classic. Hey! Oh! Let’s Go! (-to-the-video-store-and-learn-about-the-shirt-I-just-bought). Watch it so when you see people with the shirt on, you can know the story.

10. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers: Runnin’ Down a Dream (2007)

Tom Petty has always reminded me of Martina Navratilova. This 2-disc set covers early Petty, the history of the Heartbreakers, interviews with the likes of Stevie Nicks, Dave Grohl, and Rick Rubin, leading to their 30th anniversary concert in Gainesville. Culture yourself with this four-hour collection. Because nobody wants to hear about the four hours you spent playing Medal of Honor. Also worth watching so you can understand where your parents are coming from.

9. DIG! (2004)

This film compiles seven years of footage following two bands– The Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Dandy Warhols, as they attempt to take over the music industry. BJM front man Anton Newcombe is an egomaniacal, wacky-costume wearing, 80-instrument playing, band-sabotaging, audience-kicking train wreck – and a pleasure to watch. The Dandy Warhols’ front man Courtney Taylor wears makeup and must navigate the treacherous road of dealing with major record companies. Watch it to remind you just how crazy the music industry really is.

8. Instrument- 10 Years With The Band Fugazi (2001)

If you know punk and Hardcore, you know Fugazi. You also know that the most mainstream they have ever gotten is email forwards falsely reporting the death of lead singer Ian MacKaye. Watch this doc to see how dedicated these guys are, and for a scene where MacKaye calls a punch-happy kid an “Ice Cream Eating Motherfucker.” It’s something I call my friends at least once a week.

7. The Fearless Freaks (2005)

This disc covers the formation of Oklahoma psych-rockers The Flaming Lips. Maybe dropping all that acid wasn’t such a bad idea. Every band (except The Strokes) had shitty day jobs. In this clip, front man Wayne Coyne re-enacts being held up while working at Long John Silver’s. Heads up to Unsolved Mysteries: cast cute Vietnamese children for your re-enactments. Watch it because it will keep you from ever shooting heroin, or moving to Oklahoma City.

6. I Am Trying To Break Your Heart (2002)

Wilco records their fourth album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Idiots at the record label deem it “not poppy” enough. Album is released for free online and later goes on to sell over 500,000 copies and have music critics creaming in their jeans. This is that story. Fred Armisen (SNL) is in it too. See it for the story.

5. The Last Waltz (1978)

Martin Scorsese helmed this enthralling look into the final performance of folk group, The Band. What they lack in coming up with cool band names (or is it the coolest band name?), they make up for with killer on-stage collaborations, including Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, and more. See it because it’s Martin Scorsese, and way better than the Oldguyapalloza that was his recent Shine A Light.

4. Some Kind of Monster (2004)

Originally made to chronicle the recording of Metallica’s St. Anger, this disc explores what happens when “metal group” meets “group therapy”. Drummer Lars Ulrich has a sit-down with former Metallica guitarist, Dave Mustaine and the “talk it out” (not metal). Guitarist Kirk Hammett is allowed to suggest a lyric. He comes up with, “my life-style is my death-style.” See it because it shows you the totally damaging effects that giant piles of money can have on your development into adulthood. And also, it’s just a great fucking movie— think Step Brother’s but for real.

3. The Devil and Daniel Johnston (2005)

Meet Daniel Johnston. He writes songs and records them on a crappy boom box. He does his own artwork and hands out these cassettes. He was institutionalized when he thought he was possessed by the devil and diagnosed with manic-depressive psychosis and his songs are incredible. His story is unbelievable, particularly the part about going flying with his pilot father, removing the keys from the ignition while airborne, and tossing them out the window. Guess what happened? I’ll give you a hit—it rhymes with ‘clane prash.’ See it to remind you of the overlap of genius and insanity.

2. Gimmie Shelter (1970)

I went to a Rolling Stones concert when I was in 9th grade. My friend’s dad took us. He knew all of the songs. I thought it was one of the lamest things ever. It wasn’t until college that I appreciated The Stones and realized that back in the day, they were just fucking awesome, and really set the stage for every band that followed. Watching Gimmie Shelter helped me reach this understanding. Watch it to see the result of one of the biggest fails in concert history: agreeing to let the Hells Angels run security. Lets just say things got ‘stabby.’

1. Don’t Look Back (1967)

Filmmaker D. A. Pennebaker is one of the most influential documentarians of all time. He established a style that is still used to this day. He avoided structured interviews and captured intimate moments using handheld camera work while maintaining a fly-on-the-wall presence. As commonplace as it is today, it was a big deal when he followed Bob Dylan around for his 1965 tour in England. Although it doesn’t have the flash of other docs on this list, it takes the number one spot for being THE original. Watch it to appreciate the genera just a little more.

Bob Dylan and Tom Petty ‘Lucky Old Sun’ rehearsal

Great cover of a classic track!

This originally was performed by Dean Martin and has been performed by countless great artists including Ray Charles and Johnny Cash, to name but a few.

The song was written by Smith/Gillespie.

Lucky Old Sun

In the green morning
I wanted to be a heart.
A heart.

And in the ripe evening
I wanted to be a nightingale.
A nightingale.

turn orange-colored.
turn the color of love.)

In the vivid morning
I wanted to be myself.
A heart.

And at the evening’s end
I wanted to be my voice.
A nightingale.

turn orange-colored.
turn the color of love.

Tom Petty Remembers George Harrison

Lovely tribute to the late great George Harrison from his friend Tom Petty, with whom he had worked on a number of occasions, most significantly as part of the Traveling Wilburys.

Some fascinating insights into George’s complex mentality and character too, as well as an insight into the mutual devotion between himself and Bob Dylan.

Tom Petty Remembers George Harrison

“I’m blessed to have known him.”

by Mim Udovitch and David Wild

I first met him in 1974 when I came out to Los Angeles. I hadn’t been out here very long. I was working at Leon Russell’s, and there were a few nights with sessions with George and Ringo. It’s a scary thing meeting Beatles, but George was so nice to me and included me in everything. Then our paths didn’t cross again until years later. This was probably ’85 or ’86, when the Heartbreakers were touring England with Bob Dylan. George came one night to see us in Birmingham. Bob was busy with something, and so we wound up just talking. I reminded him that we’d met, and there was some kind of weird click. It felt like we had known each other all our lives, and in a very personal way. We wound up just hanging a lot. I have a great photo somewhere – it was my birthday, and George brought a little cake to my dressing room. In the photo, there is me with George and Jeff Lynne, Roger McGuinn, Bob Dylan and Mike Campbell – all of my favorite people right there, and it was so sweet. I think Ringo was there as well. That night there was a surprise hurricane in London, and my life never felt the same again after that hurricane.

I went back to L.A., and almost by fate I went into a restaurant, spur of the moment. I hadn’t planned to go, and the waiter came over and said, “Oh, your friend is in the next room, he wants to see you.” I didn’t know who he meant. I walked in, and it was George. He said, “God, it’s so weird, I was just asking Jeff Lynne for your number.” He said, “Where are you going?” I said, “I’m just going home.” He said, “Do you mind if I go with you?” He came to my house and stayed for days. George came to L.A. fairly often, and I went to England and visited him a lot. That’s going to be the hard thing – going to England from now on. It will seem so strange with him not there. See, George really treasured his friends. Mike Campbell was saying, “George was the only kind of friend I knew who would bring you a gift every time he saw you.” He once brought me four ukuleles in a week. Four?

I said, “George, I don’t think I need four ukuleles.” He said, “Well, this one is better than the other ones. And it’s just good to have them here – you never know when we’re going to all be over and need them.” George’s idea of a band was that everybody hung. From what he told me, the Beatles were that way. They were very, very tight. He really wanted the Traveling Wilburys to be like that. Like, “If we’re going to the party, we’re all going.” I’m so glad I got to be in a band with him. He taught me so much.

What was it like being in a band with Bob Dylan?

George quoted Bob like people quote Scripture. Bob really adored George, too. George used to hang over the balcony videoing Bob while Bob wasn’t aware of it. Bob would be sitting at the piano playing, and George would tape it and listen to it all night.

So George had his own private Dylan bootlegs?

Yeah. One day George was hiding in the hedge at the house where we were recording. As everybody flew off, George would rise up out of the bushes with his video going. And he did that with Bob. I think George frightened Bob. When the Wilburys started, George was so reverent of Bob. At the end of the first day, he said, “We know that you’re Bob Dylan and everything, but we’re going to just treat you and talk to you like we would anybody else.” And Bob went, “Well, great. Believe it or not, I’m in awe of you guys, and it’s the same for me.” I said to George, “That is really amazing, how you said that to Bob.” George goes, “I can say those sort of things. But you can’t” [laughs]. George adored Bob Dylan, like, “Dylan makes Shakespeare look like Billy Joel.” And George absolutely adored the Wilburys. That was his baby from the beginning, and he went at it with such great enthusiasm. The rest of his life, he considered himself a Wilbury.

It doesn’t really sound like he was the quiet one.

Well, he never shut up. George had a lot to say. Boy, did he have a lot to say. That’s hysterical to me, you know, that he was known as the quiet one. I assume he got that name because the other ones were so much louder. I mean, they were very loud people [laughs]. One time he told me, “Me and Olivia had Paul and Linda over the other night, and you would have thought there was a hundred people in the house, it was so loud.” I’ll tell you, nobody I’ve encountered ever lived his life more every day than George did. He crammed in a lot of living and didn’t waste his time. And he had an idea a minute. Some nights he would have so many great ideas. George really said everything that crossed his mind. I used to say, “You really can’t get a thought to your brain without it slipping out your mouth.” And he was painfully honest. It was an endearing trait, but sometimes you hoped that he wouldn’t be quite as honest as he was going to be.

Was it sometimes difficult to be around him?

Let’s be honest. There was Cranky George, and he could be very cynical at times. He would always be the first to nail himself as being too cynical, but he was quite funny when he was really cynical.

How do you think he felt about the Beatles as he got older?

I just know what I’ve heard from George as the years went by. But he was very funny, like, “The Beatles, they weren’t all that they were cracked up to be” [laughs]. He loved the Beatles. He used to bitch sometimes about individual Beatles who got on his nerves. But he really loved them down deep, and I knew this. I think that a lot of George’s personality was formed by John. This is just a guess, but that was the way it appeared to me. He looked up to John so much. He said, “Oh, John would be a Wilbury in a second.” He’d say about Paul, “Paul is a year older than me, and he still is.” But he really loved Paul, too. And he really loved Ringo.

What George Harrison songs mean the most to you?

Oh, God, there are so many. “Here Comes the Sun” always has a big effect on me. “Isn’t It a Pity” is a masterpiece.

Any of the songs you recorded with him?

I loved “End of the Line.” I remember the day he wrote it. He had started it off on the piano. And we all kind of sat in a group. “Handle With Care” I like. His enthusiasm was very contagious in a recording session, in a writing session. He just had unbridled enthusiasm. One of the things I’ll miss most is when he used to drop by and he would always have a guitar or a ukulele in his hands most of the evening. He taught me so much guitar. I miss him showing me the guitar and some Beatles lick that I never could figure out. He would show these licks to me, and they would be the simplest things in the world, but they’d eluded me because I didn’t think they could be that simple. But what a beautiful player he was. He just had that extreme taste. He really was something on the guitar.

And the ukulele, too?

He really got into the ukulele. It sounds kind of corny, but it gave him so much joy, you know. I was there when he first discovered it. The rest of his life was ukulele. He played the hell out of the thing. When my kids were little, we could clear rooms with those things, because they knew George was going to carry on till daylight with the ukulele.

For a guy who loved music and people so much, he rarely played in public.

He was never far from music. The last time he came over here, which wasn’t that long ago, he was playing the guitar and singing, singing me new songs that he had written, which were just so beautiful. I said, “I wish you would just put a mike up, and let’s tape you just like this.” He didn’t want to do it – “Maybe later.” But he told me something once like, “I never really pursued a solo career. All Things Must Pass was a reaction to leaving the Beatles. I had to do something.” And when that went so well, he made another one. But he never really had a manager or anybody to report to, and I don’t think he had any interest in touring. He told me many times he was very uncomfortable being the guy up front having to sing all the songs. It was just not his idea of fun.

The thing he was proudest of was the Beatles. He said the Beatles put out such a positive message. He was appalled at the things being said in pop music. Once he got into his Indian music, that rock & roll music to him was in the past. I don’t think he had much interest in rock music past about ’57. I remember him visiting me on tour in Germany. He would come to the side of the stage and look out. But he really didn’t want to go on. He would go, “It’s so loud and smoky, and they are acting so crazy. I just feel better back here.”

In the car today, I was listening to a song you two wrote together, “Cheer Down.” Where did that one come from?

Olivia would say that to George when he got a little too happy. He would get a burst of enthusiasm, and she’d say, “OK, cheer down, big fellow.”

Were you impressed with Olivia’s defense of George when he was attacked in their home in 1999?

When I heard about it, I sent George a fax, and it just said, “Aren’t you glad you married a Mexican girl?” [laughs] Olivia really kicked ass. She is a beautiful person. His son, Dhani, is a beautiful kid, man. I’ve seen him recently. He is doing very well. Very strong and inspired. Olivia had the hardest job in the world, because she loved George more than all of us, and she really took care of him and cleared the path in front of him, behind him, and inherited that crazy life, you know.

Do you believe his spiritual life helped him cope with what had to be a horrible few years?

I would think it helped him immensely. He is just a really brave guy, and he died with a great deal of dignity. It’s so much easier for me than if he had died that night in the attack. I don’t think I could have dealt with that. I told him so. When I put on my TV the morning he was stabbed, it looked like he had died, there were so many biographical things coming up on the TV. After that, I told him, “I already kind of went through your death.” And I said, “Just do me a favor and don’t die that way, because I just can’t handle it.” He said he promised me he wasn’t going out that way.

Not that long ago, he released a statement telling people not to worry about him. Was that just characteristic of him?

I’ll tell you, the media wasn’t very sweet in the last year of his life. He was probably the most hounded of his whole life when he was trying to deal with that. Especially in Europe, he never got a moment’s peace. He would have helicopters follow him when he left the house. I guess that comes with the territory. That’s part of the price you pay. He paid that price so many times – well, overpaid. But he’d be the first to say there’s nothing to be gained by bitterness or anger, hatred. I don’t know how many times he would remind me that bitterness or pessimism is only going to slow you down finding the solution. And he lived that way. George was the kind of guy who wasn’t going to leave until he hugged you for five minutes and told you how much he loved you. We knew where we stood with each other.

It sounds like this relationship was very important to you.

Oh, I feel blessed. And it’s the only time in my life, really, that I had been that close to somebody – outside of like my mom dying or something. I loved him so much, and if he had never played a note, I would have been so blessed to have him in my life. And then over the weekend, it really comes home to you that, oh, wow, the whole world feels this way. They all knew him in their way, and they are mourning him as well. It was very hard, because there’s a duality to it. I mourn for my friend, and then I also am a huge fan just like everyone else. I’m just blessed by God to have known him. He had so much love in him. I realized it more with him gone that he was just pure love. My daughter Adria used to visit him a lot in England when she was over there. She would go and stay at Friar Park. She was telling me the other night that one night they were out walking in the garden and he goes, “Oh, Adria, sometimes I just wish I could turn into a light beam and go away.”

Perhaps that’s how it works.

Yeah, maybe that is how it works.

Is there anything else you’d like George Harrison fans to understand about the man you knew so well?

I would assure all his fans that George was just really as beautiful as they pictured him. And maybe more.

Bob Dylan & Tom Petty – Duelling Banjos

Bob Dylan & Tom Petty – Dueling Banjos

mp3/vbr240/133mb / RS / covers included

Is it possible I’ve not posted anything pertaining to his Bobness in a long time!

Fucking Hell! I’m sorry your Bobness!! Please don’t smite me down!! (also please tell me what smite might mean!)


This one’s a great recording of Bob supported by Petty & the Heartbreakers.

The tracks are culled from two shows held at the Entertainment Centre, Sydney, Australia on February 24-25, 1986 as well as a single track recorded a few months later at Tacoma, Washington – on July 31, 1986.

In his magnificent “Chronicles Vol 1” Dylan described this period as creatively his worst ever. It doesn’t sound that way on this CD though.


This is as good a quality as live concerts get. As it was mastered directly from a Westwood One CD for broadcast, the quality is utter perfection.

The band (Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers) are polished to brilliance. Dylan’s vocals are up front and right in your face. His delivery is flawless on every song.

This show is truly a must-have.

The only flaws in this incredible CD is in packaging. To start with, the title ‘Dueling’ itself is misspelled. The date and venue listed on the back cover and on the CD is wrong. The photo and aesthetics are weak. There have been other releases of this compilation, but for some reason, most have problems with packaging.

Bob Dylan – My Back Pages (two great versions!)

Ah, but I was so much older then, I’m younger than that now.

A sublime classic from his Bobness.

Two fine versions here;

  • Bob performs the classic live in Toronto in 1998.
  • “My Back Pages” Live in 1992 at the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Concert where a true “All-Star” line-up of performers (including Neil Young,Tom Petty,George Harrison,Eric Clapton,Roger McGuinn) knock out this Dylan classic.

Big thanks to juanchysGD and hue37!

Crimson flames tied through my ears

Rollin’ high and mighty traps

Pounced with fire on flaming roads

Using ideas as my maps

“We’ll meet on edges, soon,” said I

Proud ‘neath heated brow.

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.

Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth

“Rip down all hate,” I screamed

Lies that life is black and white

Spoke from my skull. I dreamed

Romantic facts of musketeers

Foundationed deep, somehow.

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.

Girls’ faces formed the forward path

From phony jealousy

To memorizing politics

Of ancient history

Flung down by corpse evangelists

Unthought of, though, somehow.

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.

A self-ordained professor’s tongue

Too serious to fool

Spouted out that liberty

Is just equality in school

“Equality,” I spoke the word

As if a wedding vow.

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.

In a soldier’s stance, I aimed my hand

At the mongrel dogs who teach

Fearing not that I’d become my enemy

In the instant that I preach

My pathway led by confusion boats

Mutiny from stern to bow.

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats

Too noble to neglect

Deceived me into thinking

I had something to protect

Good and bad, I define these terms

Quite clear, no doubt, somehow.

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.

“My Back Pages” Live in Toronto in 1998;

“My Back Pages” Live at the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Concert;

This clip comes from the Fall of 1992.

his is an “All-Star” line-up of performers (including Neil Young,Tom Petty,George Harrison,Eric Clapton,Roger McGuinn) knock out the Dylan classic “My Back Pages”.
