The Projection Booth invited me back to discuss Colin Hanks’ documentary, All Things Must Pass: The Life and Death of Tower Records (2015). Mike White and talk about music stores, zines, video stores and a bit about mutual friend, Colin Geddes. And Mike has a very interesting interview with producer.
The story of Tower Records is one of entrepreneurship. Opening in 1960, the store grew to a six billion dollar company before suddenly crashing and burning in the early 2000s. Was it a victim of digital downloading? Did it grow too big too fast? What did we lose when Tower closed its doors? Those are some of the questions that filmmaker Colin Hanks attempts to answer in the 2015 documentary All Things Must Pass: The Life And Death Of Tower Records.
