Speaking of '67....

Here's something cool that I stumbled upon. A BBC documentary called "Seven Ages of Rock" that features a lot of old Pink Floyd and Velvet Underground footage, interviews with the band members, and a researched history on their music and its effect on everything surrounding it. I have never seen a lot of the stuff that they include in this video, like Bowie covering (and being greatly influenced by) the VU.

With excellent video quality, this thing is a great watch. They also cover Roxy Music and Genesis, which is mostly lame, but the last part of the documentary is cool because it brings the story full circle.
  • The video runs for 60 minutes. To watch it, click here
