Legends of Rock DVD box set

Another wonderful box set from Shock Entertainment, this collection includes SLASH LIVE AT THE ROXY, catching the former Guns n’ Roses guitarist in blistering form with his band The Conspirators and Alter Breed singer Myles Kennedy out front, running through tracks from his solo career, as well as Gunners faves.

GOD BLESS OZZY OSBOURNE is a documentary about Heavy Metal’s Prince Of F**king Darkness, made by his son Jack Osbourne. Far removed from Jack’s teenage waster years as exposed on The Osbournes TV show, he proves adept at getting into his Dad’s head and showing us a bit of what makes Ozzy tick.

CROSSFIRE HURRICANE is one of the best documentaries out there on The Rolling Stones. Shot in 2012 by Bret Morgen, it features new interviews with the band members, and provides a fascinating look into how they evolved from spotty faced ‘60s teens playing pure blues, through death, drugs, disaster and internal dramas to become the biggest rock band in the world by the ‘80s. A modern classic from what must be the most photographed and filmed band in history.

Finally, SUPER DUPER ALICE COOPER, made by the Banger Films team who brought us Metal, A Headbangers Journey and Iron Maiden Flight 666, is a self-described ‘doc opera’ tracking Vincent Furnier’s journey from Beatles-obsessed schoolboy to near-dead rock casualty, and his triumphant mid-‘80s comeback. A classic battle of two enormous egos, Alice Cooper’s story is unique in that both those personalities were his own – his battle was always within himself, and took him to the brink of destruction from alcohol, successful rehab, and then an even more dramatic plummet into cocaine addiction. Never less than fascinating, Super Duper Alice Cooper is a must have for any serious rock fan.
