My holiday break was fantastic! If yours was even half as good, I’m sure you feel the same. I hope so, but really: my break was even better. Up front we knocked out our holiday stuff, spent quality time with family, then had a couple of days of doing almost nothing before closing out the holiday break with quality time with friends. I got a lot done during the days of doing almost nothing, including tearing through a cool new Beatles/Beach Boys book, entitled Manson. There was a brief interruption of my holiday break, when I had to return to work on Friday, January 2, but before I knew it the weekend was here. I spent the final fews hours of my holiday break catching up on a bunch of rock docs I’d saved in my Netflix queue for months:
- Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me
- Ain’t in it for My Health: A Film About Levon Helm
- Twenty Feet From Stardom
My impressions follow. I’m curious to know what recent rock docs you’ve watched that you’d recommend (or not).
