The High School That Rocked!

The High School That Rocked

This is a documentary about some of the luckiest high school rock fans ever. The Staples High School of Westport, CT had legendary rock acts from 1966 to 1969 because of some go-getter students. After they got one booking the others followed.

The acts were: The Doors, The Beau Brummels, The Rascals, The Yardbirds, The Animals, The Remains, Buddy Miles, Cream, Sly and the Family Stone and Chain Reaction. Chain Reaction? That was the group with lead singer Steven Tyler.

The documentary is 25 minutes long. It is mostly interviews with the students who were there, now adults and some who continued in the music industry. Also there are many photos taken by the students and some via newspaper reports. The photos show that when the Yardbirds played they had both Beck and Page playing; again how lucky can you get?

     Some of the people who did this were also involved in the Remains documentary called America's Lost Band. The Remains music is used in the soundtrack.

The whole thing is endearing. It brings back the spirt of 60s rock before things got dark.

It's available on VIMEO on Demand which is an easy way to get movies like this. Link to VIMEO documentary The High School That Rocked!

A 24 hour rent is only $2.50. Well worth it.
