Rock Icons 2015 - (Director) Sam Dunn February Interview Quotes

"These are musicians that have made a major impact over the past several decades, and many of them haven't had documentaries made about their lives or even about the bands they've played in. So it was a combination of finding a good story and zeroing in on the artists who's stories haven't been told already."

"The most important component is a new and very thorough interview with the icon, him or herself, and then we would select anywhere from three to five support characters to help tell their story who have been part of the icon's life in some way. So it could be a family member, a band mate, a producer, or a life-long friend. There are no journalists or experts or historians in this series. We want to really give viewers an intimate portrait of who the person is behind the rock star that we know and see on stage."
