Quotes

Anthony Burgess: I remember an old proverb. It says that, uh, youth, um, thinks itself wise just as drunk men think themselves sober. Youth is not wise! Youth knows... youth knows nothing about life! Youth knows nothing about anything except for a mass of cliches which for the most part through the media of pop songs are just foisted on them by middle-aged entrepreneurs and exploiters who should know better.

Interesting time capsule but a bit dated
1 August 2007 | by (Glendale, CA) – See all my reviews

Just saw this at a screening at the American Cinematheque with director Tony Palmer present. For the record, interviews and performances include: Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Cream, Frank Zappa, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, George Martin, Donovan, Jimi Hendrix, Manfred Mann, Lulu, The Who, Pete Townshend, Anthony Burgess and others. Great to see the fine performances; trenchant insight from Zappa. McCartney and Donovan seem like naive, starry-eyed idealists in hindsight. But a lot of what seems most dated is the whole "what's this pop music all about?" stuff from guys in suits doing experiments and such -- seems almost like a Monty Python parody of this kind of BBC documentary. Still, just as archival footage, it's a treat. Wish he'd shown some performance footage of Zappa and the Mothers, since all the other bands are well represented.
