New Videos Offer Rock History Bonanza - Page 3
Two documentaries to look for in late July feature unauthorized biographies of Mick Jagger and Kate Bush. Both are available for pre-order.
If it seems like Mick Jagger has been around forever, it’s only because he has. The man is nearly seventy, somehow making it to the ripe old age of 67. The Roaring 20s: Mick Jagger’s Glory Years focuses on the very young Mick Jagger, his life and work when he was a twenty-something. It’s a 106-minute mix of music, interviews, archival photos and footage, gossip, and history.
I know what you’re thinking, “Don’t they make documentaries about female recording artists?,” and the answer is “Yes, here’s one.” More than forty years of work are examined in three hours on the two-DVD documentary Kate Bush: A Life of Surprises (The Story So Far). Like the Jagger title, this DVD is filled with interviews, rare film footage, archival photos, and a slice of music history. Bush is a singer, songwriter, and musician—a performer who has passed the test of time with flying colors (not that I ever use clichés!). A Life of Surprises is an intimate portrait of a remarkable artist.
