    Damn, loved Morphine, i saw them once at the American Legion (I think) and i was drinking way to much jagermiester. Had tickets to see them again when he died. I had no idea they were making a documentary. i remember failed attempts trying to see if people that were really into jazz would like them

    Not necessarily a rock doc (although they did write some wholesome rock n roll), but i really loved The Boys: The Sherman Brothers Story. They are the guys responsible for the Mary Poppins music and soooooooooo many others.

    I never saw live forever but heard it was pretty awful.

    24 hours party people is awesome, but not a documentary.

    This is a great film but it's worth noting that the kicking out of Jay Bennett isn't exactly addressed directly. You see a couple of minor arguments and awkward moments between Jay and Jeff but no official firing or any discussions about it really. It's a glaring omission in fact. Makes me wonder if Jeff didn't want the dirty laundry filmed. Still a great story and to this day it's hard to dispute the best lineup Wilco ever had included Jay Bennett and that shouldn't take anything away from abilities of Nels Cline who is undoubtedly every bit as good of a musician if not better than Jay was.

    I'm confused by this phrasing. He did play Coachella a few years ago. I was right up front. He played "Two Headed Dog" right after I yelled it out.. probably a coincidence, but still one of my favorite Coachella moments ever.

    I believe I meant "he was able to play Coachella" and I will edit my post to say so. Thanks.

    The point is, great documentary.

    Yeah, unfortunately it's not a very good documentary despite the subject matter.

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Not true, it is very much addressed. Jay's firing is not on camera, but Tweedy and Bennett are both interviewed immediately after it. Tweedy explains his reasons for it and Jay gives his thoughts on why it happened. It's a major moment in the film. I agree with you that Bennett was a significant piece of the Wilco puzzle at the time - and it's no coincidence that the band has never made an album of that quality since he left.

    It's really bad when Varg Vikernes comes across as the most comparatively sane person interviewed. I mean, he stabbed a bandmate 23 times, burned down churches and is an avowed Odalist and white supremacist.

    This Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon "Making Of" Documentary is fantastic, and less than an hour long.

    They really get into how the complex arrangements were made in the analog age, down to manually engaging multiple tape recorders, each with its own sound effects, like the clocks on "Time." Plus, they develop the history of the album, how it was perfected live prior to being recorded.

    If you're a Floyd fan, it's a must-watch. If you're a fan of the music recording process, it's a must-watch. If you hate Floyd and music recording, there's about five seasons of Larry Sanders to watch.

    After Jay leaves the band (in the thread of the doc) it's so awkward how they portray Tweedy's views of the matter and the rest of the band's views as opposed to Jay's. Sam Jones captures certain footage of Jay's reaction that makes him out to be sort of an egoist, especially with a line like "I think Jeff was just intimidated; he didn't want the spotlight taken from him." But later on, Jones has more footage of a show they did without Jay, and Jeff and John are almost dueting and Jeff is having no problem with John belting some of the lyrics.

    That doc was very entertaining but I had a problem with how it turned Jay Bennett into a bad guy. It was he (as seen in the footage) that was doing a lot of the electronic experimentation which had a big part in making the album such a masterpiece.

    speaking of wilco, Billy Bragg & Wilco - Man in the Sand (The Making of "Mermaid Avenue") is an excellcent documentary about the making of Mermaid Avenue, a collaboration between Billy Bragg and Wilco on Woody Guthrie songs that were never released. the band and Bragg took guthrie's handwritten lyrics, which many years before bob dylan had tried to find himself, and produced music and sung songs in the spirit of guthrie himself, and yet was modern at the same time. some classic wilco songs like "california stars" and "one by one" came from the album, and Bragg's versions of the guthrie songs were equally brilliant. i don't believe this is on instant, but it's worth watching. jay's still in the band at this point.

    the most insightful thing of that movie, to me at least, is to see jeff complaining that his partners seem to marginalize him. I love Tweedy's work, but the fact that he has had multiple failed musical partnerships (Farrar, Bragg, Bennett) makes me wonder if the problem is with jeff.

    I think Jay says it in I Am Trying to Break Your Heart, when playing in a band with Jeff there can be only one center in the circle and that's Jeff.
