Documentary Movie--Hired Gun
 
Two days ago I watched a very interesting and well-made documentary movie on the Amazon Prime network. The movie was an hour and a half long. The people profiled in the film are some of the music industry's most prolific session players and live gig sidemen/women. It consisted of interviews with, background information about, and scenes of the featured musicians playing with top acts. There was a lot of onscreen time for Kenny Aronoff and Liberty DeVito as well as many other drummers, guitarists, and bassists. I strongly recommend watching this movie.

I enjoyed it. Nice to see Phil X. acting like an adult instead of some attention deficit juvenile.

Thanks, guys, for offering your input on the movie. It is worth an hour and a half of our time.

I saw it back in 2016 when it came out. It is very eye opening. I still can't look at Billy Joel the same way I did before seeing the movie.

From listening to the narration in the film and Liberty DeVito's interview, I wonder if Billy Joel's entire demeanor changed radically when his manager screwed him out of all of his money.
