I watched two shows of note this

weekend. First was Rocketman,

which I liked. I also watched “The

making of wish you were here“ a
2012 documentary with interviews

with the band members. It delved
into how Syd 
Barretts decent into

mental illness affected them and

still does today. Excellent program

@BeatleloverKT  -  I look forward to seeing Rocketman.  There is also a docu-interview with Sir Elton from 2019 after the book and movie had been released. It was on Amazon Prime and lasts about an hour. 

 

I also watched the "WYWH" documentary, and thought it was very well done.

This is from a few days back, but I just noticed it. The Stones have released a “new” song that they recorded 47 years ago with Jimmy Page. It will be on the re-release of Goats Head Soup 2020, along with a few more never published demos, outtakes, etc. Some of the comments on YT are funny. Here is the link to Scarlet.

The

This Saturday, August 1, Showtime will premier the documentary "The Go Gos".

It was originally scheduled to air at 9 PM but the start time keeps changing.

If you will be recording, be sure to confirm the start time before setting your DVR.
