    New Banger Films Series - Rock Icons

    Banger Films and VH1 Classic present "Rock Icons", an original documentary series profiling the most legendary artists in the history of rock music, premiering Saturday, February 21 on VH1 Classic.

    "Rock Icons" is 10 groundbreaking 30-minute episodes that go past the veil of mystery and beyond the velvet ropes with in-depth, intimate portraits revealing who these rock stars really are, and the road that lead them to their iconic status today. Each episode is jam-packed with exclusive interviews, never-before-seen footage with featured artists and key people who helped shape their exemplary careers.

    Over the past year, Banger Films' Sam Dunn has been traveling to meet with some of the biggest names in rock and metal music. Some of them will be very familiar, like the metal heroes he’s had the privilege to interview before, people like Rob Halford of JUDAS PRIEST, Joe Elliott of DEF LEPPARD, Geddy Lee of RUSH, and Slash of GUNS N' ROSES and VELVET REVOLVER. He also had the chance to sit down for the first time with such iconic artists as Ann Wilson of HEART and Daryl Hall. He traveled to MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine's winery, MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx's radio studio, SMASHING PUMPKINS leader Billy Corgan's home and even got invited back to the Texas sanctum of Ted Nugent.

    Bringing together elements of celebrated shows such as Classic Albums, Biography, Iconoclasts, and Banger's own hit show "Metal Evolution", "Rock Icons" is a landmark series celebrating the innovative artists who defined the history of rock music.

    The first episode features the remarkable Geddy Lee of RUSH.

    Future episodes will include:

    * Rob Halford (JUDAS PRIEST)
    * Ted Nugent
    * Ann Wilson (HEART)
    * Dave Mustaine (MEGADETH)
    * Nikki Sixx (MÖTLEY CRÜE)
    * Slash (GUNS N' ROSES)
    * Daryl Hall (HALL & OATES)
    * Joe Elliott (DEF LEPPARD)
    * Billy Corgan (SMASHING PUMPKINS)

    Jack, i will have you know i watched EVERY episode, even Mr. Hall.
    Very enjoyable, with my faves being (Rob Halford, Ann Wilson, Nikki Sixx & Geddy Lee).

    Some crazy insights:

    Mustaine looks like shit, these days.
    He's aged so much in the last few years.

    Billy Corgan was a monster shredder!
    Those old clips showing him in full-on Yngwie mode.

    Joe Elliot is boring.
    And, yes, Def Leppard was a NWOBHM band.
    You can't erase those great, first two albums.

    Nikki Sixx is awesome.

    I only wish they were at least an hour long.
    Each episode had so much ground to cover, it felt rushed.

    I forgot this show even happened.

    I'm very intrigued to see Corgan shredding.

    Oh man, I cant wait to see The Steel Helmet. I thought The Big Red One was a refreshingly honest portrayal of war time, pulpy as it was. Anybody seen those other films?

    that means I can cross one of my great worries from my list. It would have been really mean to have deprived all of those who didnt get the big set of these films.

    Thank you Criterion - I now revoke most of the ranting that I did on the thread for the box set about the exclusive films all when we get Madadayo But Im hoping that it was simply because it didnt fit the first films theme of this set
