    Just watched a documentary on XTC. Very intereting. Man, bands back then....watching a punk/alternative band grow creatively with the times and themselves. Makes you appreciate what those guys did that much more. Respect.

    I have seen many of those mentioned and liked them all. Anything music related usually gains my attention.

    My favorite might be The Girl Can't Help It because there were so many fifties acts in it.

    Hired Gun was good. I really liked Don't Stop Believing: Everyman's Journey. That Thing You Do is one of my favorite all time movies.

    But mostly I'm here to say I'm dying because everyone is saying how great Crossroads is, and all I can think of is a bunch of not teenage girls in 2001 raving about this:

    The Commitments is my favorite 'musical' right after The Blues Brothers.

    it's heartbreaking in a way, they keep at it long after it would / might have happened.
    Every aspiring Band / Musician could learn from watching this.

    The punk one was good, the second one was more about glam metal, and metal bands turning glam. Not as much about other metal.

    Some styles not in your original vet, but highly recommended

    A Great day in Harlem
    Standing in the Shadows of Motown
    Muscle Shoals
    Lambert & Stamp
    Any/all of the "Deconstructing the Beatles" series
    Heavy Metal Parking Lot.....

    For fun
    Empire Records
    High Fidelity
    School of Rock
    Begin Again

    And while not a "music" movie per se, Dazed & Confused is a window on how music impacted the day to day life of average Middle American teen in the the late '70s and early '80s, much as Quadrophenia showed the UK in the early/mid 60's

    The Blues is a 2003 documentary film series produced by Martin Scorsese, dedicated to the history of blues music. In each of the seven episodes, a different director explores a stage in the development of the blues. The series originally aired on PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) in the United States. -- from wiki

    In the early to middle 1980’s, there was a movie on HBO about a teenage kid who played guitar and his dream was to make it in the music business. All I really remember about it was I really liked it (probably because I just got my first electric guitar) and the kid had a Les Paul if I’m remembering correctly.

    Mandatory - for anyone w/ no actual "road experience" (like me) who imagines a fantasy life and how it all works out like clockwork.
    In reality, it's probably either a dog's breakfast or boring as hell, w/ brief shining moments.

    Other movie - That Thing You Do - Tom Hanks. What a lovely soundtrack!

    Keep posting - Deeve
