|Danny Says – Featurette
Once dubbed the underground â€œmayor of New York,â€� Danny Fields (nÃ©e Feinberg) has played a pivotal role in the music and culture of the late 20th century. DANNY SAYS follows Fields from Harvard Law dropout, to â€œhippie yentaâ€� at Warholâ€™s Factory, to Director of Publicity at Elektra Records, to punk pioneer and beyond. Led by Fieldsâ€™ hilariously droll commentary and largely crafted from over 250 hours of interviews and items from his immense archive (thousands of photographs, audio cassettes and ephemera), the film features outrageous anecdotes recounted by Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Judy Collins, Tommy Ramone, Lenny Kaye, Wayne Kramer, and John Cameron Mitchell, among many others. They tell the wild story of a man whose taste and opinion, once deemed defiant and radical, turned out to have been prescient.
