LOST ROCKERS is the new film from Paul Rachman and Steven Blush, makers of the AMERICAN HARDCORE punk rock documentary that premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and was theatrically released by Sony Pictures Classics. LOST ROCKERS reveals great musicians overlooked by pop culture. It offers insight into what it takes to “make it,” and why so many of equal talent to famous stars fall through the cracks. The film tells the life stories of these forgotten artists — of different eras, genres, creeds and orientations — from their doomed paths to fame to their ultimate redemption. You’ll experience amazing music you can’t believe you never heard.

LOST ROCKERS has only just begun. We’ve shot our first four interviews (Gloria Jones, Jake Holmes, David Peel and Dr. israel) with many more to come, including famous rock stars commenting on their lesser-known contemporaries. Completing our research and moving into the post-production phase will require travel across the US, UK and Europe. Your contributions will help put us on this path.
