FOREVER YOUNG: HOW ROCK AND ROLL GREW UP 2010
U.K. documentary. Keith Richards looks like he's been dead for forty years. But they love him. –Joe Brown.

How does rock and roll deal with growing up and growing old? From its roots in the 1950s & 1960s as a music made by young people for young people to the 21st-century phenomena of the rock and roll revival and the comeback.

Despite the mantra of "live fast, die young," Britain's first rock 'n' roll generations are now enjoying old age. What was once about youth and risk-taking is now about survival, nostalgia and refusing to grow up or shut up. But what happens when rock and roll's youthful rebelliousness is delivered wrapped in wrinkles?

Interviews include: Lemmy, Iggy Pop, Eric Burdon, Peter Noone, Rick Wakeman, Paul Jones, Richard Thompson, Suggs, Bruce Welch, Robert Wyatt, Gary Brooker, Joe Brown, Chris Dreja of the Yardbirds, Alison Moyet, Robyn Hitchcock, writers Rosie Boycott and Nick Kent and producer Joe Boyd.
