Weekly survey: What’s the best music doc for long winter nights?
We’re entering the darkest time of the year, the stretch during which we are deprived of sunshine. Time to cocoon for a bit, which may mean settling down with some music documentaries on Netflix.
Here’s the survey question for the week: Recommend a great music doc. It can be from any genre from any era. And it doesn’t matter that it’s currently not on Netflix because chances are you can find it somewhere else (iTunes, YouTube, Qello, etc.)
Drop your suggestion below. You’ll end up helping your fellow music fan getting through those long winter nights.
