Mini Bio (1)

Joseph Martin Massot was an American-born British film director and writer most notable for the film Wonderwall (1968) which featured George Harrison's first soundtrack. He also directed Led Zeppelin concert film The Song Remains The Same (1976), although he was removed from this project and didn't finish it.

He also directed Space Riders and Reflections On Love (1966). He was given writing credit on the George Lazenby box office flop Universal Soldier (1971).

Inspired by Oasis's song 'Wonderwall', a direct reference to his film, Massot cut a new directors version of Wonderwall in 1999, and included a previously unreleased Harrison song 'In the First Place' which Massot had discovered in a sound archive.

Massot died on 4 April 2002, after a short illness, at his Flood Street home in London, England.
