REDISCOVERING LOST ROCKERS
American Hardcore filmmakers Paul Rachman and Steven Blush have a new project: Lost Rockers, a documentary “about great musicians overlooked by pop culture.” From the project’s Kickstarter page:
LOST ROCKERS… offers insight into what it takes to “make it,” and why so many of equal talent to famous stars fall through the cracks. The film tells the life stories of these forgotten artists — of different eras, genres, creeds and orientations — from their doomed paths to fame to their ultimate redemption. You’ll experience amazing music you can’t believe you never heard.
LOST ROCKERS has only just begun. We’ve shot our first four interviews (Gloria Jones, Jake Holmes, David Peel and Dr. israel) with many more to come, including famous rock stars commenting on their lesser-known contemporaries. Completing our research and moving into the post-production phase will require travel across the US, UK and Europe.
I don’t know whether it’s the subject matter, the success of American Hardcore, or the fan base of the filmmakers, but they are already 38% of the way towards their goal of $15,000 just after the start of their campaign. You can join up with them by clicking below.
