I watched A Band Called Death the other night and was actually pretty disappointed with it. The music Death produced was killer and there is an interesting story in there, but the film itself was pretty boring. Has anyone else seen it?

Is it the one where they give Chuck sh*t for canceling tours?
I've got no idea what you're referring to haha. A Band Called Death is about three brothers in the early 70s that started a punk band a few years before punk existed, but their album never got released due to their record label pulling their deal because they refused to change their band name to something else.

I've recently watched the Country Music series on SBS (apparently a lot more footage in the original PBS production) - very good history of country.
That was a Ken Burns production - that's why it was a quality production - with his favourite narrator, actor Peter Coyote. Google him and you will recognize his face, he has done hundreds of bit pieces in movies over 50 years, never the star, and has been a voice over actor for docs for 25-30 years.

Burns' Country Music 8 x 2hrs nicely complemented his Jazz doco series of 10 x 2hrs from 2001. No more music stuff in his future projects for the next few yers.

As someone who doesn't mind some country music, rather than a greater lover of it, I knew Dolly Parton was a prodigious writer, producer of other people's songs but had no idea how influential Willie Nelson was away from his own performances over the last 60 years, and also the impact of Kris Kristofferson. Never new he wrote Me and Bobby McGee and had recorded it before Janis Joplin. Loved the Johnny Cash stuff in the series.
