    According to Soundtracking, one of the reasons The Beatles stopped touring was they wanted to take their music in directions that they couldn't reproduce live. Though I can't image that playing live was much fun byt the end.

    Finally got to watch Ron Howard's Beatles "Eight Days a Week" doc and it's great!!! He did a great job getting all that footage together and interviews with those who were at their concerts and traveled with them during the tours, and new ones with Paul & Ringo mixed with archives of John & George and even George Martin and Brian Epstein. The DVD too has another disc with it that has more bonus footage including 5 complete live song performances.

    The hubs gave me 8 Days for Christmas! Pleased.

    "Fallen Angel" about Gram Parsons is interesting. It's a little disjointed in places, but the interviews are good.

    "Muscle Shoals" is 10 kinds of awesome! Of course, I live 40 miles from there, so it really resonated with me. When they talked about the Tennessee River being the "singing river", I just got teary-eyed. I've lived on the banks of that old river all my life. (Glenn recorded part of "The Allnighter" there, of course.)

    "Respect Yourself" is another great music documentary. Saw that one on PBS.

    I've seen the Janis Joplin doc. Heartbreaking.

    PBS also had a good documentary on the making of "Magical Mystery Tour." Probably better than the actual movie. LOLOL.

    The Stax Records story! That was so darn good, I watched it twice in a row.

    Same deal with the Muscle Shoals doc. So what do you think about the singing lady in the river legend? Has she given you a song yet?

    I've just watched "Joe Cocker: Mad Dog With Soul" and found it quite moving. A fairly simple story of a talent who made it to the top and then fell apart and then there was the rest of his life.

I also loved watching "Behind the Music" and other shows like it for various genres of music as I love learning about musicians/bands and their stories. Really looking forward to seeing Ron Howard's new Beatles doc "Eight Days a Week" when it comes out on DVD in November, Justin Timberlake's he just put on Netflix, and there's one on Oasis coming out soon too.
    Just watched Living in The Material World on Netflix and really enjoyed it. Directed by Martin Scorsese and released in October 2011 - I think this is the definitive documentary on George Harrison who left this world far too early and is dearly missed. If others haven't seen it yet and subscribe to Netflix, I hope you'll check it out.
