10 must-watch rock biopics that you won’t be able to look away from

Most of us don’t get to witness great moments in history, or key moments where exactly the right elements come together for a masterpiece to be created. That’s where biopics come in – we get to feel, briefly, like we’re there when, say, a chance meeting starts what will be a decades-long creative partnership, or one small decision leads someone irreparably into a downward spiral. Considering the wealth of fascinating characters and insane stories in the rock world, there aren’t a huge amount of really great biopics. Rights issues often come into it – it’s hard to tell a band’s story without permission to use their music, and they might not want to be shown in an unflattering light, so the whole project falls apart, and so on. Just think how good a Guns N’...

Live from the.. -CD+Blry-

CD + Blu-ray. By 1974, the Alice Cooper group had risen to the upper echelon of rock stardom... and then, parted ways. In October 2015, over 40 years later, record store owner and superfan Chris Penn convinced the original line-up to reunite for a very special performance at his record store Good Records in Dallas, Texas. Alice Cooper (vocals), Michael Bruce (guitar), Dennis Dunaway (bass) and Neal Smith (drums) were joined on stage by Alice's current guitarist Ryan Roxie (standing in for the late Glen Buxton). A packed audience, believing they had come to Good Records for Dennis Dunaway's 'Snakes! Guillotines! Electric Chairs!' book signing, were surprised to bear witness to a full-blown happening. The historic reunion show including all-time classics such as "No More Mr. Nice Guy", "I'm Eighteen" and "School's Out" is now becoming available for the very first time worldwide. Luckily the event was documented. "Live From The Astroturf, Alice Cooper" (edited and directed by Steven Gaddis) toured the world to the acclaim of music fans and rock journalists alike. The documentary won multiple awards for it's coverage of the historic event. Now all Alice Cooper fans and rock music lovers across the globe can enjoy this movie as it's included as a video bonus to this live album. Pop the popcorn, blow up the balloons, dim the lights, and crank it up!
