Before Music Dies

Narrated by Academy Award® Winner Forest Whitaker, BEFORE THE MUSIC DIES is an unsettling and inspiring look at today’s popular music industry featuring interviews and performances by Erykah Badu, Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews, Branford Marsalis, ?uestlove and a wide variety of others. The documentary film has built a passionate following as “the most important film a music fan will ever see” (XM Radio) by providing “a balanced overview of the state of the rock scene of America” (The Wall Street Journal) and adding “passion to the eternal debate about the industry” (The New York Times). Last year, BEFORE THE MUSIC DIES filmmakers Andrew Shapter and Joel Rasmussen walked away from traditional Hollywood distribution to instead pursue a large-scale grassroots release with B-Side Entertainment. Since its release in November 2006, the film has screened over 200 times in over 130 North American markets with hundreds of additional events anticipated worldwide during 2007. Use this site to learn more about the film, where you can see it, ways you can own it, and – most importantly – how you can get involved in sharing it with others.

  1. Ellianne Kadence’s latest project shines

  2. too late… ‘music’ r.i.p.

  3. Still not here….not sure what is going on but you posted that it was here and working but as of Aug21/10 it is not here !

  4. There should be some way of reporting a dead link. This video is non existant.

    • Well just simply writing a comment as you have done so, notifies me of a broken link. Also if you look up at the menu bar you can see a “Contact/Report Link” button. It is easy enough.

      But i can tell you that once i finish my college exams there will be alot of work done on our site & hopefully many new features including a direct report video button.

      I hope this clears things up and also i will look into fining a working version of this video.
