WORLD PREMIERE: My "Incompleat History of Rock 'n Roll"

David Wild, longtime writer and contributing editor at Rolling Stone, has just called my "Incompleat History" the "most promising upcoming Web music series." I've hinted that this is coming, and now here it is: The trailer for my upcoming series, shot and edited by my film director son, Andy Mitchell of "MacAwesome" fame. Just uploaded to YouTube a few minutes ago and soon to go up elsewhere. Companion book to follow. This is a personal saga, from Elvis in the '50s to my stint as executive editor at Crawdaddy throughout the 1970s, to the present day.

Give it a look--five minutes long, and features everyone from Roy Orbison to Dylan, Neil Young, Talking Heads and Springsteen, and leave a comment here or at YouTube. Much more to follow. Gawker covers it here. The great Will Bunch at the Philly Daily News tips his cap here.
