What is Classic Rock?

Daniel Sarkissian

While the title of the movie may make its intentions crystal clear, the answer to its question is a lot more complicated. Director Daniel Sarkissian set out to explore the intricacies of the topic, interviewing musicians from such bands as Megadeth, Guns N’ Roses, Twisted Sister, KISS, The Doobie Brothers, The Guess Who, Styx, Billy Talent, and many others. He also chats with radio DJs who do their best to explain the ambiguous phrase.
