Metallica's "Some Kind of Monster" actually lowered my opinion of that band.

And, for my money, if the Stones ever get the stones enough to release "Ladies and Gentlemen, the Rolling Stones" on DVD, it beats "Gimme Shelter" on a musical level. You don't get the Altamont docu-drama, but I would rather see the Stones working it onstage than interviews with Melvin Belli.

Lastly, I would argue that Pink Floyd's "The Wall" says more than Madonna's Truth or Dare docu, but I have never actually seen the latter, so that is just my bias talking.

Dad of 2, I did not mean to suggest that I was arguing with you! I was arguing with Rolling Stone magazine....um, if they read this thread.

The ABB Beacon is probably my most-played DVD. I also really really love the Miles at the Isle of Wight DVD!!!
I am also a big fan of the Songlines DVD, and Steve Hackett's "Somewhere In South America," though I suppose neither of those is iconic enough (yet!) for RS's list. I heartily agreed with RS's pick of The Last Waltz and also of The Kids Are Alright.

I also think that a more intriguing list would be of DVDs that NEED to come out, either long-rumored footage that may or may not exist or else stuff that is just on hold or out of print, like "Wings Across America" or the aforementioned "Ladies and Gentlemen" or the Black (Sabbath) and Blue (Oyser Cult) 1980 film or the Genesis 1976 film. Sometimes you see stuff like mint 1977 Led Zepp footage that is clearly pro-shot and you have to wonder why someone would just sit on that, when clearly they could both please some music lovers AND make a ton o'cash on it?!

To Live's To Fly about Townes Van Zandt should be at the top of that list.

That was an interesting list. I do agree they got No. 1 correct. But where's Pink Floyd The Wall?

And I was shocked to see that No. 24 even made the list. The Devil and Daniel Johnston - amazing guy, amazing film. If you don't know who he is - find out! And move this to the top of your Netflix que.

These lists are always subjective but I noticed that some I would have chosen were missing:
Concert for Bangledesh
Pink Floyd - Pulse, The Wall
Steely Dan - 2 Against Nature
Jethro Tull - Isle of Wight
SRV - Live From Austin
Quadrophenia (the movie)
Spinal Tap
Grateful Dead (don't get me started )
sid and nancy

i was actually impressed with that list.....

i'm not sure it was a purely supposed to be a performance oriented list, rather, a documentary about the musicians and their music.


was the film about the New york dolls on there? with Killer Kane? (i can check when i get home) - THAT ONE is worth adding to any netflix or blockbuster que for sure...


and don't get me started on "Some Kind of Monster". i loved that movie!



and finally........COOL ARTICLE ABOUT THE GOOD DOCTOR ON THE COVER! WWHOOO HOOO GONZO FOREVER!

I don't put any faith in top 10 or top 100 lists anymore, especially from Rolling Stone. Remember their top 500 albums of all time? They were missing so many great albums such as TEXAS FLOOD from SRV or NIGHT MOVES from Bob Seger, etc. etc.

Speaking of lists, every other week various guitar and guitar player magazines have their own "Top guitarits of all time." Of course Jimi is always #1 no matter which magazine it is. Beyond that there is so much dissention and variation of who is #2 through #50 or 100. Lists are not made to include or please everyone, it's just some editor's own opinion poll. The top 25 DVD list is the same way. By the way, where is DON'T LOOK BACK?

A big one that they are missing is the recently released "Les Paul - Chasing Sound". How do you even talk about modern music without a tip of the hat to the man that created so much of what we hear today.

my only problem with this was that it was edited in between songs interupting the flow of the film. other than that an excellent work. i can't wait to see the newly released arthur lee/love documentary "love story".

Can't argue too much with the top 10 Rolling Stone choices. Elvis 1968 should be higher though. Beatles documentary on Let It Be has always been fascinating to me.

U2's two classic DVDs, Slane Castle and Under a Red Blood Sky, run circles around Rattle & Hum.

The Language of Music documentary on Tom Dowd may not fit the bill exactly but that is one of the greatest I've ever seen. The opening when they kick into Tales of Brave Ulyses by Cream and then show the bomb going off is classic cinematography. Tom Dowd sitting down and remixing Layla again is bone chilling video, too.

Allman Brothers don't have an all-time classic in my opinion, although I love the two reunion era videos: Beacon Theatre and Great Woods (VHS). Sure wish Sony would re-release the VHS version of Great Woods on DVD and include the extra interviews from the DVD version also (instead of what made it to DVD).

The ABB should have a classic, if they pulled together every bit of existing footage of Berry & Duane and other interviews...

Rolling Stone also felt it necessary to include some offbeat choices just so as to be artsy, as is always their case.

Someone mentioned the Genesis 1976 film. It is out on DVD now as part of the recent remaster Genesis box set.....saw it on VH1 Classics a month or so ago...

While it is cool that the Genesis 1976 film is sort of available, I guess it is only available as part of an expensive remastered CD box set? I will have to work on that..

Where is "Jimi Hendrix: Woodstock", which shows nearly his entire Monday morning performance? "Cream 2005"? "Led Zeppelin"? Glaring omissions, even more so than the Beacon.
