Director Jonathan McHugh on Long Live Rock

Welcome Jonathan McHugh

We’re joined on the Starline by a director, producer, music supervisor and educator. He’s worked with Snoop, Britney, Biebs and his latest documentary “Long Live Rock” is out now. We welcome Jonathan McHugh.

Brother let’s go Beyond the Mic your love of music is evident, where did you first discover your love of music?

So how much was the ticket at that time?

“Long Live Rock” examines the community of Rock from behind the scenes discussions with musicians and fans. With concert music being silent because of COVID-19 how important was releasing this to bring back a bit of normalcy to those silent arenas and festival areas?

You don’t believe Rock is dead but how has it evolved in the last 20 years?

There is something electric you were able to capture in the movie. Nurses, a woman crowd surfing in her wheelchair…

When you initially made it, there were challenges with deaths as you were beginning to make it. How great was it to finally have it available for people to watch?
