Yep, and Crosby comes off as the most level-headed of the bunch (prize for the opposite end, as always, goes to Jim McGuinn). The live/tribute performances were really good, too.

 

Yep. One of my favorites so far.
And, AND a humble David Crosby!
Lots of Byrds...how can it be bad?

I've got to check this out. I heard passing references to Laurel Canyon as a musicians' haven over the years and then saw bits of the area while watching episodes of "Californiacation." It looked and sounded serenely beautiful. 

But this comment makes me want to track the movie down: 


"Yep, and Crosby comes off as the most level-headed of the bunch (prize for the opposite end, as always, goes to Jim McGuinn)."



I'm not doubting you but when David Crosby is the most level-headed person in a group of people, there has to be a serious problem. That guy ingested a pharmacy of drugs in his time. At one point in the 80s it seemed like he was getting arrested every other week. And he was a socially destructive person. There's a trailer for the film about Crosby's life where he says something like "All the guys I made music with—all of 'em—won't even talk to me." 
 

It's definitely surprising that he has such clear-eyed memories of who was doing what with whom. Probably aided by reading books and watching documentaries, but he sounds good now. McGuinn has always come off as addled, to me, even in 60s interviews from before the drugs could be wholly responsible.

From that perspective, it's a sad film. He was driven by something to write constantly, almost until he was physically unable.
Neglected his kids, his marriage. Even at the end he felt like he hadn't reached a finishing point, so much undun. Some pride in what he'd accomplished, but so miserable because of the drive.

Two thumbs up. It's as good as a biographical movie could be, sorting through his material, his motivations, and giving a good feel for the various stages of his life & career. By then, with the last concert ever and a furious burst of music and dance as the cap to his entire life...I had something in my eye.

I still don't like his music, but this was definitely worth watching.
 
I feel exactly the same way about Zappa.  Always thought one of the most odd and interesting things about him was the fact that he did not do drugs.  I mean the reasons are quite rational from an efficient workplace standpoint, but certain drugs and musical creativity kinda go hand in hand and would seem and did cause many conflicts with other musicians who saw certain drugs as a necessary thread in the tapestry of their creation.{#Cowboy}  But yea I am not a big fan of his music either from a pure listening enjoyment standpoint and yes I have heard a large enough sampling size to make a discerning decision.  However I am quite keen on listening to what he has to say, he had his finger on the pulse of his existence.{#Meditate}

zappa was definitely a thought provoking person

i was introduced to frank (and psilocybin) at an early age and i was really primed by blues influences

which probably explains a lot

sometimes it was like he was reading my mind

This one captures a place and era quite long gone by, but then again, many things just seem like they haven't changed until today...

Perhaps, most all here have seen it. If not, oh well... you might feel kicked towards finally viewing it.
