I'll bet money that nobody even bothered to give him a call.

By the way Doug Yule is in the film according to the cast list.

Good news.

So there's "archive footage" of Lou and Sterl presumably telling their side of the story, which was predictable, but it's still not the same as if they had been interviewed on purpose for the project, like the others no doubt have been. The perspective is different. They also used Lennon footage for the "Anthology" project, but in the end it was McCartney who obviously got most of the onscreen time, which was not fair.

Let's wait and see how this one turns out.

So until the dead can be revived -- and made to speak -- documentaries shouldn't be made?

Oh, they can be made. But they are inevitably born flawed. The banana album was recorded 55 years ago.

So...don't try to make a documentary about a band if you can't talk to all members for that documentary?

Sorry...better a flawed documentary than no documentary! Someone better tell Ken Burns to stop making those dumb documentaries about dead presidents and old wars and things like "Jazz!" So many of the original participants are long dead, so why waste time watching those productions!

Yeah, how dare Ken Burns "document" the Civil War without talking to the people who fought in it! That isn't a documentary! It's biased FAKE NEWS!

Just pointing out the very obvious shortcomings.

As I said, I will watch the documentary with interest, like I did with The Beatles' "Anthology".

On an embarrassing note, I seem to be the only person who did not know that the Theatre of Eternal Music track has been around for years
i've owned a c90 cassette it plus others broadcast on WKCR since Xmas 1984. Its possibly the copy i gave Cale they're using
