Dirk’s Five – Rockumentary

To mark the end of Dirk on Tap, it is time to Rock!

It has been sometime since we have had a contribution from Dom Dirk. This entry has come in by text, his e-mail account is presently being used by a Penis Patch marketing team. As soon as he gets back on the road and his posts have been subject to New Yorker style fact-checking, we will get an addition to his list, in the meantime …


DON’T LOOK BACK (1967) Captured on of rock’s greats at the height of his powers by a great documentary maker.

IN BED WITH MADONNA (1991) I saw her on the Blond Ambition tour at Wembley. It was an excellent performance and a great souvenir. This is her best folly cinema and she managed to offend Kevin Costner, which can’t be a bad thing!

GIMME SHELTER (1970) The Rolling Stones giving a free concert at Altamont with The Hells Angels as security, was never going to be a good idea. This event ended the 1960s.

THE LAST WALTZ (1978) Scorsese captures the last performances of The Band, but also with Muddy Waters, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison and Bob Dylan among others. It couldn’t really fail, and it doesn’t.


WOODSTOCK (1970) Three and a half hours of mud and not very good music. If this was the 60s, then bring on prog..
