Reunion of Rock Stars from the Festival
Los Angeles Premiere of Miles Davis documentary
Thursday August 26, 2010 - 7:30 pm
The Egyptian Theatre, Hollywood
- MESSAGE TO LOVE
- (1970, 120 mins, MLF, Directed by Murray Lerner)
- The 1970 Isle Of Wight Festival was the largest rock event of that era with over 600,000 attendees. And it was historic. It featured the last major performances by Jimi Hendrix (who died 3 weeks later) and Jim Morrison (who died ten months later). Future Oscar-winner Murray Lerner beautifully captured the performances by the cream of rock royalty and also discreetly documented the greed of the promoters and festival attendees that helped kill off the 1960s hippie dream. Includes stunning performances by: The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Jethro Tull, ELP, Free, Ten Years After, The Moody Blues, John Sebastian, Donovan, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen. PLUS PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN OUTTAKES!
Conversation between films with: Ray Manzarek & Robby Krieger (The Doors), Keith Emerson (ELP), Glenn Cornick (Jethro Tull), Murray Lerner (director). Moderated by Mods & Rockers founder/producer Martin Lewis
- MILES ELECTRIC
