HDNet Movies delivers the ultimate music and film experience with Graham Nash Presents 9 Days Of Rock Docs—13 documentaries hosted by GRAMMY-winning music icon Graham Nash who will share personal stories about the featured artists as he takes viewers on an unforgettable journey that includes premieres of critically acclaimed documentaries, packed with rare footage and candid interviews with some of music’s most influential artists. The special event will double-bill in primetime at 8 pm ET each evening from Saturday, July 9th through Saturday, July 16th, and features films starring beloved acts such as Prince, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, The Beach Boys, Green Day, The Who, Eric Clapton, and many more, culminating in a day-long marathon on Sunday, July 17th, that puts the spotlight on eight of Nash’s favorite rock docs.
The special event spans a wide variety of artists, genres, and eras, taking a look at the diverse characters who have left an indelible mark on music, as we know it. Nash believes it’s vital to look back at the ways the art form has grown and changed over the decades, saying, “I think you have to understand something very basic: we’re only a link in a chain that is miles, miles, centuries long. Stretching from the time that somebody in a cave was banging on a log, all the way through to Lady Gaga. We’re only links in this incredible chain of music that has been made in this last 50-odd years. It’s going to be very interesting to see how future historians deal with this time.”
In conjunction with the event, HDNet Movies is giving fans a chance to win an Epiphone guitar signed by Graham Nash. Fans can enter to win by using HDNet Movies “Rock Doc” cover photo generator on Facebook.
Graham Nash’s new studio album This Path Tonight was released worldwide on April 15th.
