Before the Music Dies by Andrew Shapter (video)

In posse on 2008/09/21 at 10:46 pm

A critical look at the homogenization of popular music with commentary by some of the industry’s biggest talents like The Roots’ ?uestlove, Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews, Elvis Costello, Erykah Badu, Branford Marsalis, Bonnie Raitt and more.

Inspired by the death of his brother, director Andrew Shapter and his crew traveled thousands of miles, visiting dozens of cities, speaking with hundreds of fans, journalists, record executives and musicians while searching for “real” American music. What they found were mega-talents without a major label, including one artist Eric Clapton believes is “the real thing.”
