Doc N Roll: Rock Chicks: I Am Not Female To You (ctba)
We are told that on the rock stages it’s a man’s world, but is that really true or is the true King of Rock and Roll a Queen? Listen closely and you can hear Memphis Minnie’s guitar in Chuck Berry, Big Mama Thornton’s growl in Elvis; but these women have been largely pushed out of the collective memory. We meet women who have devoted their life to their art and help tell the herstory of rock music including Rockabilly hero Linda Gail Lewis, The Go Go’s Kathy Valentine, Suzi Quatro and Kristen Hersh. A film about music as an inner need, about fighting your dreams and daring to be yourself.
