"Blowing Fuses Left & Right - The Legendary Detroit Rock Interviews" DVD

Collection of raw interviews with Stooges, MC5 legends

This lengthy (3 hour) disc is a collection of full-length interviews conducted in 1988 by a young writer fascinated by the legendary Detroit rock scene of the late 60s/early 70s. These interviews are raw and taken from old VHS tapes, but the quality is fine, and there are some fascinating conversations with some now-departed legends.

Beginning with a long interview with Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton, the disc also features extended interviews with MC5 mainman Rob Tyner, as well as MC5 drummer Dennis Thompson. The interviewer (Gil Magulis) coaxes many untold stories from these guys, and to any serious fan, this should be a must-see.
