Have you seen Heavy Metal Parking Lot? The 16 minute documentary by Jeff Krulik and John Heyn is a hoot! The entire documentary is staged around a 1986 Judas Priest concert - except you never see the band! As the title suggests, the entire movie is just interviews with a bunch of stoners - er, fans - before the big show.
1986 must have been a magical time to be an adult. I was less than seven when the documentary was made, so I didn't know anything about Judas Priest. Still, I sort of envy the people featured in the clip. All the rock fans are having an absolutely great time and really proves that the concert experience these days is completely different. I'm pretty sure the people interviewed for the documentary either camped or stood on-line for tickets. These days, you just grab a credit card and hope you don't get screwed by Ticketmaster. You put some $4 gas in the tank and fly to the stadium right after work - taking an entire day off to hang out in a parking lot with other rock fans before a big show just really isn't practical these days. Sort of makes me sad I missed so many cool things in the 1980s.
There are so many great parts of Heavy Metal Parking Lot, but I really like when the fans kept throwing back beer - and got noticeably more drunk - right as the cameras rolled!
In addition to the regular documentary, the special DVD package also features a replay with director commentary - very funny!
