An Ode to Tower Records


Following a successful debut at SXSW, Colin Hanks’s documentary on the rise and fall of America’s largest record store, All Things Must Pass, has now released its trailer online. The film features interviews with Sir Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, founder Ross Solomon, and former employee Dave Grohl, and traces the company’s journey from its cocaine-fueled, boozy start to the day when its last locations closed in 2006, forty-six years later. Watch the trailer after the jump, along with an interview with Hanks from the SXSW debut of the film, which is scheduled for theatrical release on October 16th.
