Rock Legends: Journey
Looking back at major musical figures, we discover the stories of their lives and the impact they had on popular culture. Using performances as well as interviews with prominent journalists, each tale will reveal unique aspects of these iconic stars. Tuesday, we’re exploring the life and career of Journey! This American rock band formed in San Francisco in 1973 is composed of former members of Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch. Learn about these legends Tuesday at 8/7c.
The Day the Rock Star Died: Janis Joplin
Janis Joplin was a big-voiced, bluesy singer who dominated every performance, forged her own path and paved the way for the female singers who followed. Her electric stage presence and charismatic personality quickly made her an icon. She headlined the legendary Woodstock Music Festival, had 5 songs on the Hot 100 chart, and remains as one of the top-selling musicians in the United States. On Sunday afternoon, October 4, 1970, at the age of just 27, she was found dead at the Landmark Motor Hotel, just 16 days after the death of fellow rock legend, Jimi Hendrix. We’re dedicating this Tuesday to Janis, her inspiring originality, and the legacy she left behind on The Day The Rock Star Died at 8:30/7:30c.
Docs That Rock: Kansas: Miracles Out of Nowhere
Miracles Out of Nowhere tells the improbable story of the band Kansas. Go on a journey with the band from the miraculous ride in their gutted school bus, to signing with music mogul Don Kirshner, to touring with Queen. This rockumentary also includes harrowing tales of the fights with Steven Tyler and recording some of the biggest albums and songs of their era that eventually led them to global super-stardom.
