Tom Petty's last recorded interview will be in an upcoming documentary called "Echo in the Canyon", about the music scene in the Laurel Canyon part of L.A. in the 60s. It'll be out on May 24th.
The documentary features a collection of interviews from legendary musicians including the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson, the Beatles’ Ringo Starr and Eric Clapton, who describe the folk music scene as it developed.
The interviews, which were conducted by Jakob Dylan of The Wallflowers, also were with Stephen Stills, The Byrds’ Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, Graham Nash, The Mamas and the Papas’ Michelle Phillips and Jackson Browne. Other musicians not from that specific era who spoke of that scene’s influence include Beck, Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Norah Jones and Regina Spektor.
Originally a concert that took place at Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre in 2015, Echo in the Canyon featured of songs from that era performed by artists including Dylan, Apple, Cat Power, Beck and others. Archival footage from that period, as well as rehearsal and studio footage of the musicians performing at the concert, are intercut throughout the film.
