This marks the end of The Crow trilogy...of my shows, not the film trilogy. Much like the Robert Johnson episode, I was shocked to find out how little of full story of this incredibly talented performer's death I had actually known all this time.
The Crow stands out from many other subjects of A History of Rock n' Roll in Film and Rock n' Roll. I simply don’t talk in as much detail about most movies I cover on these episodes. But I think it stands to reason that many of them didn’t have an influence on modern culture, moviemaking and popular music like this one did. Usually the subjects covered in the films I review (the rock stars with names in the title, or just the era of culture portrayed) had more influence in real life than the films themselves.
This episode covers a lot more Nine Inch Nails through some great interviews with Trent Reznor from the 90s, plus one little magazine review of an early New Order show that I couldn't help but include, and a quick deviation at the beginning toward a famous comic book innovator who once found himself in the same positions as a young James O'Barr did while serving in the U.S. military.
This one gets a bit silly, a bit raw, a bit sad, but it was needed. Cheers, all. Your continued indulgence is noted and appreciated.
