The PBS show "Frontline", featuring an appearance by VELVET REVOLVER, has been made available for online viewing at this location. The episode, titled "The Way the Music Died", follows the trajectory of the record business from its post-Woodstock heyday in the 1970s and '80s to what one observer describes as a "hysteria" of mass layoffs and bankruptcy in 2004. The documentary, which aired May 27, focuses on the aspirations and experiences of four artists: VELVET REVOLVER, veteran musician David Crosby and songwriter/producer Mark Hudson, whose daughter, Sarah, is about to release her first single.According to the VELVET REVOLVER fan site Velvet–Revolver.com, the show features footage of bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum listening to their debut album, "Contraband", in one of Matt's cars, "They also talked to RCA Records about finding VR, listening to the new single, viewing artwork... There's also some pro-shot footage from the El Rey show (June 19, 2003), but it's only playing on a TV screen."
