Me too! Now, if I could only find The Wrecking Crew on Netflix…

Saw the Wrecking Crew doc at the theater a few weeks ago. It was really well done.

I have to wait for my dad to get home to watch this with him so I’m sad as heck

Weir from his RS interview:
“I’ll never step out of Jerry’s shadow nor he out of mine.”
Is that a tip off to the height of the pedestal for this Weir documentary? Ah, I love the Bobster, just kiddin’… kinda.

Linky for inquiring minds…

Yeah, I snorted so hard I needed a medical procedure after I read that one.
That interview is a goldmine, though.

Big Star juxtaposed to Bob

I just finished it. I enjoyed it overall, the fact that it exists is a plus in my book. It is odd how the director interviewed Billy, Mickey and Phil and got so little out of the interviews. They get one quote a piece. Also, I liked how they brought up specific Bob songs, and he talked about them, yet other than the Weather Report Suite Demo being used in one scene, we didn’t hear about that song at all! One of his finest. Oh, but we can get a snippet of him doing ‘On the Road Again’.
Also, for a film explicitly about the guy who in the public perception of the Dead gets overshadowed by Jerry…there’s a lot of talk about Jerry! I know you have to talk about him, and his death, but I wanted more of Bob.

A fair and balanced review.
What say you all?

Better than expected and Bobby so largely coherent. Got a five from me. This should be Bobby’s “book”

Here’s my review:
Bobbly hung out with some outrageous people
Bobby played lots of rock n roll music
Bobby got laid A TON!!
I mean seriously, if someone makes a documentary of your life, and a section of said documentary discusses how much sex you had with young hot chicks then, brother, you win life.

p.s. Bobby is probably a repeat sex offender in dozens of states but anyway…
