Trailer, Parked

Two new rock doc trailers for your viewing pleasure.....

A new documentary on The Doors titled :When You're Strange will arrive in selected theaters on April 9th. There are plenty of Doors videos out there, just look at this insane list on Amazon and you'll see what I mean.
Apparently, this one is different. Lots of new insight(more of Jim as shaman,poet-Less of Jim as drunk lunatic) unseen footage(from what I can tell some of it is from several films Jim made at UCLA including "HWY"....and from the words of Ray Manzarek: "This one doesn't star Val Kilmer playing Jim Morrison, it stars Jim Morrison playing Jim Morrison".(I always thought Harry Hamlin would have been better). Even John Densmore likes it...he showed up at Sundance in support, majorly under-dressed in his silkscreened poncho and moccasins. The film is narrated by Johnny Depp..while on a 20 minute break between Tim Burton movies. Check out the official website for more info here:

Fuck Keith Richards! Motorhead front man Lemmy is truly indestructable...He's the real deal. He'll be here after the bomb, after the roaches and zombies are the only things left, roaming the remains in his black cowboy boots, breathing out fire, disease and metal like a true sole survivor. For now, he survives by writing another song about war, jailbait or the bloody "road", preserving his Nazi memorabilia collection(true story), bathing in jack and cokes, playing video poker in his corner spot at the Rainbow Room, and rocking in his sleep. Even Ozzy runs from him!  Lemmy the movie premieres at SXSW in March.


  1. Right on! Lemmy's joke was so frickin funny. I cant wait to see the whole versions of both of those videos. Thanks for the info.

  2. Lemmy scares me, which is probably a huge compliment to him. Should be a good flick. And anything related to Jim Morrison is a good thing.

  3. I last saw Motorhead in 2003. Louder than God, but excellent. Back in '83, one of my most prized possessions was an Ace of Spades T-shirt. Turned that fucker into a paint rag.

    I have to say, to all the idiots that made fun of me for what I listened to in high school, when is the Frankie Goes to Hollywood movie going to have it's premiere? Oh right, it isn't. Nor will there be one for any of the other no talent douchebags that clogged the charts in the 80s.

    That Doors flick looks like good news as well.

  4. Wanna see the Lemmy movie - sounds awesome. Not so much interested in The Doors, though. Val Kilmer kinda killed them for me years ago.
