Is that blood on you?
From people’s faces.
One of the most incredible rockumentaries ever culled: DIG!. I owe my deep appreciation for 90s indie rock to one M.F. Radigan. He placed his copy of DIG! in my possession and wouldn’t take it back until I’d watched it.
You haven’t watched it yet? But this is rock! Rock!
I watched it 6.5 times before surrendering it back to him. He called me and said, “Yo I’m downstairs on my bike just happened to be passing by, can I get my rock vid back?” I actually had to stop and eject the DVD in order to snap it into its case and run it down to him.
I’ve included a slew of my favorite clips below, one of which is “backstage” at Monterey. And this is my Monterey ‘fit. A little bit prairie, a little bit rock, a lot of groove. All white has always been my favorite way to dress. Potential for grass stains only makes it more tempting.
I own my own copy of DIG! now. I’m inching my way toward being as cool as Raddy. I think everyone should own a solid collection of music DVDs—for those inbetween times. It’s my go-to for when we have guests over. Rob’s pouring the wine, I’m running the tunes.
Get a copy and put it into heavy rotation—along with Festival Express, The Last Waltz, Black Crowes Live at the Fillmore, Keb’ Mo': Sessions at West 54th, and Jamiroquai: Live at Montreux 2003. Like Judy Aldrige’s armful of silver bangles, these DVDs are my ‘signature stack.’
Love it, learn it, lick it. Then watch it.
