Posted: July 2nd, 2017 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | No Comments »

As much as I know about the early days of rock & roll, there’s always somebody of import who escaped my attention.

So it was, until I viewed this documentary, with Bert Berns, a songwriter and producer. Among the diverse songs he’s responsible for are “Twist & Shout,” “A Little Piece of My Heart,” and “Hang on Sloopy.”

He was super talented.

He was a little wacked.

And he was connected to the mob.

It’s a fascinating tale.

“BANG The Bert Berns Story” is showing this weekend at the Speed Museum. But only twice. Saturday 7/08 at 7:00, and Sunday 7/09 at 3:00.

To learn why you music lovers should make plans to see it, listen up:
