I Can’t Wait for Martin Scorsese’s New HBO Series on the Music Industry. Here’s a New Trailer.

Martin Scorsese has always been a super-duper music fan. Just take a listen to the soundtrack of any movie he’s ever made. Now with this buddy Mick Jagger (and remember Scorsese produced a concert film with the Stones), he and the creator of Boardwalk Empire have a new HBO series set in the record industry of the 1970s. That means lots of corruption, coke, payola, hookers and plenty of bad behavior. Hey, Andrew Dice Clay plays one of the characters.

Here’s the latest trailer for Vinyl. I can’t wait for the debut of the ten-episode series in January.

  • I’m only cautiously excited. My fear is Scorsese will do what he always does, latch onto the “excess” of the era and that will be the only real story line… kind of like the Wolf of Wall Street which SUCKED. He’ll probably work the mafia into the story line as well… sigh.

    I would LOVE more of a Mad Men inspired period piece spanning from the dawn of the album era in 1964 and ending with the launch of MTV. I’ll take Matthew Weiner nuance over Scorsese excess any day.

  • Its true he will probably take some dramatic liberties,nonetheless the Trailer has me kinda Pumped as well. Amongst the drama I would hope to see and find out some factual info.on the
