The filmmakers Paul Rachman and Steven Blush, who were behind the excellent documentary American Hardcore, are creating another film that looks equally as interesting. It’s called Lost Rockers and it reveals great musicians overlooked by pop culture. It 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.
The process of making Lost Rockers has only just begun though. The first few interviews have been shot with many more to come, including famous rock stars commenting on their lesser-known contemporaries. The project could use some donations so visit the kickstarter.com website to make a pledge.
