"KICK OUT THE JAMS"!

In 1966 a former dance hall in Detroit called the Grande Ballroom became both a focal point for the counter culture and a big rock and roll scene.  High-energy, blue collar rock and blues were the main stays. Many Michigan artists got their start there, but also many well known international groups performed at the Grande. Led Zepplin, Cream, the Who and B.B. King were just some of the stars presented.
 
This documentary featured interviews with Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, Roger Daltrey, members of the MC5 and others.  This is worth watching just for the soundtrack.
