    You will never find that life for which you are looking.
    When the gods created man they allotted to him death,
    but life they retained in their own keeping"

    Default Film: "Cadillac Records"

    About Hendrix: "He just played his **** off basically." Like nobody had ever done before.

    Great topic, my Rocker brother. I just wish a few other ATL Rockers were still around to post here.

    Spotlighting a great "music history" film I watched recently, called Cadillac Records. It's a fictionalized chronicle ("Based on a True Story") of Polish-immigrant record producer Leonard Chess.

    The recording studio that Leonard and his brother Phil formed was actually named "Chess Records", not "Cadillac Records". But Leonard Chess apparently became known for (1) selling records from the back of his Cadillac convertible, and (2) giving brand-new Cadillacs to some of his clients. So that's how the film was named.

    "... influential in the development of electric blues, Chicago blues, and rock and roll..."



    Adrien Brody, Jeffrey Wright, Beyoncé Knowles and Mos Def were terrific in the film.




    DJ to Chuck Berry: "If I play it, I make you famous, and him rich."



    "When you think about the King of Rock and Roll, it's not Elvis. It's Muddy Waters."


    A list of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members portrayed in the film (and the year they were voted into the RHOF):

    Willie Dixon (1994)
    Howlin' Wolf (1999) (and Grammy Hall of Fame Award)
    Etta James (1993) (and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2002)
    Little Walter (2008)
    Muddy Waters (1987) (and 6 Grammy Awards, including Lifetime Achievement in 1992)
    Leonard Chess himself (1987)
    And this guy (in 1986), wonderfully portrayed by Mos Def:



    "My name is..."



    "Y'all can't come in here."
    "Ah, I'm Chuck Berry."
    "Chuck Berry's a Country & Western singer."
    "..... Is he? ... You know what else he is, he's me!"


    Forty Days and Forty Nights (1956):




    I don't want to overload this post with videos, so I'll just use links for the rest.

    Footnotes from the film's ending credits:

    Howlin' Wolf died in 1976. Eric Clapton paid for his tombstone.

    Chuck Berry successfully sued the Beach Boys for "Surfin' USA". He was the single major influence on Rock and Roll Guitarists, with songs like "Johnny B. Goode". His only #1 Pop hit was "My Ding-a-Ling".

    Willie Dixon successfully sued Led Zeppelin for 1 million dollars. His songs went on to be covered by artists such as:
    - Bob Dylan
    - The Rolling Stones
    - The Doors
    - The Allman Brothers Band, and
    - The Greatful Dead.

    Rolling Stones:

    And the band(s) play on.
    There is no glamour in sudden death, and nobody ever wins a war.
