Big Star Documentary To Premiere Next Week

(Gibson) Big Star are getting their story told on the silver screen. Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me will premiere July 3rd in New York. The documentary chronicles the band's history and music through archival footage and an array of interviews with people closely associated with the group, including sole surviving original member Jody Stephens.
