BB King's life is chronicled on Netflix entitled "The Life Of Riley". ( BB's real name was Riley ) Great musical documentary.

Another good one is: "Austin To Boston" which follows some young folks across the US in VW Microbuses in pursuit of music.

I loved The Wrecking Crew. The one about Tom Petty is fantastic. There's also a really good one about the Carter family - can't recall the name of it right now. There's also a very good one about the Everly Brothers. I love music documentaries. I've just seen so many that I can't remember all the titles.

If you have NetFlix, search under the category MUSIC. There are dozens of music docs.

Also on YouTube.

Freddy Mercury - was on PBS some time ago ... to me, he's a legend. What musical talent can get any better than Queen? All credits to Freddy!

Lots to choose from but none I enjoyed more that "I'll Be Me" Glenn Campbell's last tour.

This link is for Netflix, not sure if it will work.

I'll Be Me

Later,

I actually liked many of the ones mentioned and quite a few not.

One of the coolest music documentaries was the series Behind The Music. It was on one of those cable music channels a few years back. Since it was an hour, I would watch the show even if the artist/band was not among my list of favorites.

Being an old Pink Floyd fan, the documentary about Dark Side was particularly interesting. An album way ahead of it's time and an all time classic.

Netflix "The Winding Stream" is about the Carter Family and their influence on Country music. It includes the life of Johnny Cash who married June Carter.

One Trick Pony (grin)..

They tried selling it as a movie, but there were no main actors really.

It did feature quite a bit of Steve Gadd, Eric Gale, Tony Levin, and Richard Tee both playing and 'behind the scenes' touring scenes.

"Still Bill"

The Bill Withers story. It is a delight (as is he).


"It's okay to head out for Wonderful.
But on your way to Wonderful, you're gonna pass through "All Right".
And when you get to All Right, take a good look around and get used to it.
'Cause that may be as far as you're gonna go..."
