DIRECTOR'S 

STATEMENT

Director Jonathan McHugh had this to say

about why he wanted to make this movie:

 

“Growing up in Staten Island, NY I would do anything to see legends like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath & KISS, perform at Madison Square Garden, or Nassau Coliseum. I was lucky to fall into the music business doing radio promotion at Elektra Records in the early 90’s, where I worked with Gary Spivack. We were blessed to promote legendary bands like Motley Crue & Metallica.  And here we are 25 years later, amplifying and championing this music, now in documentary form. “Long Live Rock” is a celebration of the chaos that makes this music and its fans, the most passionate in the world. I hope you enjoy watching this film, as much as I enjoyed making it. With all the music festivals and concerts shut down across the world, we hope this film can help tide you over, and we can get back out there and rock the f**k out again.”
