Watched a few music doc's the last 2 days . The first one was Miles Davis - The Birth Of The Cool. Really good. The second was ZZ Top - That Little Ol' Band From Texas. It was pretty good. I could have done without the silly cartoons they put in there. I still need to watch the one on Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Linda Ronstadt and David Crosby.

Tonight it ain't right

I got to have me a week

I'll be back for you, Jack

And I'll let the machine speak

Both were on Netflix.

I tried to watch the Linda Ronstadt one. I heard it is really good. But I couldn't find it in a search on NF.

Yeah its not. It was run on CNN New Years Day. We DVR'ed it and it got erased. It will come out sooner or later.

I saw the doc Strange Powers about Stephin Merritt from The Magnetic Fields recently. That was very interesting if you're a fan of his, or a fan of quirky people.

I watch music doc's about people I have never heard of or care about. I watched the Taylor Swift one cause see is easy on on the eyes. She's a little whiner.

She said when she came into the music business she shut up and did what she was told. Yeah cause when you start out  your a f-ing nobody like everyone else when they start out. You don't come into the business as the CEO.

I just watched the trailer for it,  if its on NF I will check it out.

I have seen and listen to The Residents. Different and unusual music doesn't scare me. I love Zappa.

Watched a doc on Woodstock this weekend. Pretty good. Not a whole lot of music in it. It was mostly about how it came about, the guys that funded it,  and what happened up to during and after the show.

I saw a doc on the band Slint on Youtube this weekend called Breadcrumb trail. Post-Punk/Post-Hardcore band. I also saw that the Pixies Doc, loudQUIETloud is on Youtube, I plan on watching that one soon.

I tried to listen to them. They were not for me. Don't they have an album called Spiderland where they are all in the water with their heads sticking up.

I used to rock the Pixies every now and then. Dug the album with the monkey on the cover.

I watched The Other One last night about Bob Weir of The Dead. Saw it a few years back too. He said one year he took LSD every Saturday night for a that entire year. And its hard to play your guitar sometimes when the neck looks like a snake. I'll bet. You just have to go with it.

knocking about somewhere I have Beatles doc: 'Love Me Do'. Not as grand as Ron Howard's '8 Days a Week', but great content.

Also 'the Captain Beefheart doc: 'Under Review'. I recall that as being very much in DV's style (though made after his demise). A tad surreal.

I just watched the ZZ Top one the other night. I commented that those silly cartoons looked a lot like Doonesbury. Or Doonsberry not sure how it's spelled.

Don't know if its still on there but the Anvil film is a brilliant watch..  Both utterly tragic but uplifting at the same time  🙂 (like real life Spinal Tap).

That Anvil Doc is great. One of the best docs of the past decade of any topic, not just music.
