It is hard to imagine a world without Big Star, the seminal power pop act whose intense guitar-driven pop songs influenced generations of musicians, from REM and The Flaming Lips to Primal Scream and Teenage Fanclub. Despite never receiving the commercial attention they deserved in their initial 1970s incarnation, Big Star’s music proved so vital that it granted the band a resurgence decades later. Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me charts the origins of rock’s most enduring cult phenomenon, combining never-before-seen footage, exclusive interviews and a musical tribute to the Memphis musicians.
