Love Story on the big screen

Love Story
– the documentary film of the legendary Los Angeles band Love – is doing a tour of independent cinemas, kicking off with a showing in London.

Love Story covers the band from the beginning through to their disintegration in 1968 following the completion of the band’s masterpiece Forever Changes. Filmed in 2005 & 2006, it features the last ever interviews with band leader Arthur Lee, plus interviews with all surviving original band members – Johnny Echols, Michael Stuart, Alban ‘Snoopy’ Pfisterer and unseen footage of the late Bryan Maclean.

Also taking part are Elektra Records boss Jac Holzman,Producer Bruce Botnick, arranger David Angel, The Doors’ John Densmore, Bobby Gillespie & Mani from
Primal Scream, John & Mick Head from Shack and (oddly) Ken Livingstone.
