The ’60s | The Beatles, Up Close and Personal: The Early Years
Featuring superb live footage of The Beatles in action, in concert, and in the TV studio, this film takes you on a journey into the very heart of the most successful and influential band of them all. Through the recollections and insights of those who knew The Beatles best, such as Pete Best, the program examines the creative processes and personal chemistry that contributed to some of the most iconic music ever made.
The ’70s | The Rolling Stones, In Exile
In the spring of 1971, the Rolling Stones departed the UK to take up residence in France as tax exiles. Keith Richards settled at a villa called Nellcote in Villefranche-sur-Mer, and this became the venue for the recording of much of the band’s masterpiece Exile On Main Street.
Stones In Exile tells the story through the legends’ own words with the help of extensive archive footage. The creation of their extraordinary double album during their time away from England is considered by many as the Rolling Stones’ finest achievement.
Access extensive bonus features, including interviews with all the band members and live Rolling Stones concert footage from Cocksucker Blues. Watch Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts return to Olympic Studios and Jagger’s country house, Stargroves, where a lot of the early work on the album was done.
The ’80s | Bon Jovi, Music in Review
Led by the most charismatic of frontmen, Bon Jovi has proved to be one of the most enduring forces on the hard rock scene. Featuring live performance footage, candid interviews, and criticism from a host of leading musicians, journalists, and those close to the band, this documentary is the ultimate critical review of the career and work of Bon Jovi. This incisive insight is a must-have for every Bon Jovi fan.
Featuring highlights from classics “Livin’ On a Prayer,” “Wanted Dead or Alive,” “You Give Love a Bad Name,” “Bad Medicine,” and many more.
The ’90s | Nirvana, Classic Albums: Nevermind
Nevermind was the second album from the Seattle trio and the first on the DGC label (its predecessor Bleach was released on the Sub Pop label). It was produced by Butch Vig (also the drummer for the band Garbage) and mixed by Andy Wallace. Nirvana’s surviving members Krist Novoselic (bass) and Dave Grohl (drums) talk candidly about their past, the recording of Nevermind, and about Kurt Cobain and the legacy that he has left behind. Also featured are exclusive interviews with the likes of Garry Gersh (A&R DGC Records), Butch Vig, Jonathan Ponneman, and Nils Bernstein (Sub Pop Records), Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Jack Endino, and many more.
