Storyline

Rock Icons is a 10-episode music biography series about the most legendary artists in the history of rock. Inspired by Banger Films' groundbreaking television series Metal Evolution and critically acclaimed documentary Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage, each 30-minute episode offers candid, in-depth interviews and unprecedented access to the star's private world - from the basement music room of Slash's home, to Nikki Sixx's radio studio, to backstage at a Heart concert moments before Ann Wilson takes the stage. Rock Icons explores the lives of these legends in provocative new ways, from their introduction to music, to the very peak of their careers, through to their current legacy, and beyond. Artists profiled in Rock Icons' inaugural season: Geddy Lee of Rush, Rob Halford of Judas Priest, Ted Nugent, Ann Wilson of Heart, Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe, Slash, Daryl Hall, Joe Elliott of Def Leppard and Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins.

Good show... so little time
18 April 2016 | by pakpoomttSee all my reviews

I binge watched this show over the weekend. And for music geek like me, it was always good to see these artists telling their own stories. Some of their stories are not that well known, such as Geddy Lee and Billy Corgan, though they are famous. Out of all 10, I think Daryl Hall episode was not entirely in sync with the program, even though I love Hall and his story was quite interesting.

Half an hour per episode was too short to get the whole picture of artists' lives. So it was like a snapshot on moments. Interesting and had a few tidbits that you've never known before, but nothing deep and insightful.

Anyway, look forward to see Season 2. It would be much better to expand into 45 -60 min episode.
