1966 WORLD TOUR: THE HOME MOVIES - Through the Camera of Drummer Mickey Jones

This DVD features legendary bass player John Entwistle of ‘The Who’ in a personal and in-depth interview at his home in Quarwood, Cotswolds UK. The last interview before John’s untimely death, it captures his charisma, humor and passion for the unique style and talent he possessed.

He shows his exceptional collection of rare guitars to interviewer Gordon Giltrap and talks about his special moments with his bandmates during his career. Voted 'Bass Player' of the Millennium, John's tributes are many as featured in the touching interviews of Rick Wakeman, Lemmi (Motorhead), Bill Curbishley (Manager, The Who), Philip Spalding, Dave Lambert (The Strawbs), Jeff 'Skunk' Baxter (Steely Dan) and his family.

Rather than rest on his past triumphs with The Who, John Entwistle loved any chance to get out and play. He liked to get close to his audience in an intimate atmosphere “so they can see what I’m doing.” His love of playing live saw him perform in every situation imaginable. Everyone agrees that seeing John Entwistle perform live, whether at Madison Square Garden or a local pub, was to see a spontaneous display of musical genius. This DVD provides a truly intimate look at the man behind the music.


Guitarist RAY FENWICK recalls: "Touring with the IAN GILLAN BAND in the 70s was a wild affair, both on and off stage. …we courted our fair share of controversy, but come show time we turned into a tight professional outfit, performing our own unique brand of rock music. [In front of a full house at The Rainbow Theatre in London on May 14, 1977] …presented on this DVD, is an important chapter of an essential British Rock performer, whose successes have now spanned four decades."

loudQUIETloud is an intimate portrait of the band members and their difficult, tense and ultimately triumphant return as one of rock music's greatest bands.

When college rock darlings the Pixies broke up in 1992 on the cusp of mainstream success, their fans were shocked and dismayed. When the Pixies reunited in 2004, those same fans and legions of new listeners were ecstatic and filled with high hopes. loudQUIETloud follows the rehearsals and the warm up shows for the full-fledged, sold out reunion tour. It also catalogs, in the cinema verite style of the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" and Bob Dylan's "Don't Look Back", the less glamorous side of the touring band lifestyle, getting as close to this enigmatic act as anyone is ever likely to get. Old wounds have not completely healed and the extreme pressure of the tour takes its toll on the band, but nevertheless, they deliver the goods onstage.

loudQUIETloud captures the Pixies, their families and their fans in what seems to be a once in a lifetime chance at rock n roll redemption.

Tracklist: Where Is My Mind?, Hey, Here Comes Your Man, Umass, Caribou, Gouge Away, Nimrod's Son, In Heaven, Wave Of Mutilation, Something Against You, Bone Machine, Cactus, Vamos, Monkey Gone To Heaven, Iris.
