On the 64th episode of Piecing It Together, new co-host and mega-Elton John fan Jason Baroni joins me to discuss the new biopic Rocketman. The rock music biopic is a genre that’s been done over and over (and from the looks of it, it’s going to be done over and over a lot more times), but director Dexter Fletcher and his Rocketman Taron Egerton find ways to breathe a little life into the genre. Puzzle pieces include La La Land, Across The Universe, What Happened, Miss Simone and Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker.
On the 57th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host David Quinones and I discuss Childish Gambino’s 50 minute semi-feature Guava Island, which debuted on Amazon Prime during his Coachella set. Part film, part music video collection, it’s a unique vision, as we should all expect from the team behind Atlanta and Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” music video. Puzzle pieces include Lemonade, Spirited Away, Inside Llewyn Davis and Sorry To Bother You.
