The documentary features in-depth interviews with co-founder Fripp as well as former band members, and is described as “a darkly comedic film for anyone wondering if it’s worth sacrificing everything for just one moment. of transcendence”.
Daltrey himself recently made headlines in November last year when he claimed in an interview that Jimi Hendrix’s theatrical rock was an act stolen from Who guitarist Pete Townshend. Daltrey conceded that both guitarists owe Buddy Guy a lot, saying, “You look at Buddy Guy at the start and suddenly realize – when you’re really looking for the inventor of it all, it was probably Buddy Guy. In fact, I would give it to Buddy Guy.
He also called the Rolling Stones “a mediocre pub band” in the same interview.
