The Song Remains the Same

We miss the days of rock concert movies.  I am watching, more like listening to the 1976 movie called "The Song Remains the Same" chronicling the Led Zeppelin concert from 1973 in the Madison Square Garden.  I mean, it is not my favorite, but it is like listening to a live album for a couple of hours as I make dinner.  

My favorite, of course is "The Grateful Dead Movie" released in 1977 from a series of '74 concerts.  This one rocks!

And then there is the rockumentary "This is Spinal Tap."  I bought the soundtrack for that one!

There are others out there too.  But we no longer see artists producing them.  Maybe it is time for newer musicians to create another rock opera?
