DANNY SAYS REVIEWED
“Danny Says” wants you to meet Danny Fields. It seems like every 3-4 years, there’s a new documentary introducing America to some hidden rock icon. Well, this rock icon rocks. Danny Fields did everything from hanging out in Warhol’s Factory to manipulating a teen magazine to discovering The Stooges and The Ramones. Whether it was getting “Light My Fire” cut into a single or discovering new talent, Fields was the tastemaker to end tastemakers.
Thankfully, he had impeccable taste and wasn’t willing to compromise for the 1970s Stadium Rock scene. The sheer volume of hidden material in the bonus features shows that the documentary barely scratches the surface of Fields’ legacy. Yeah, he didn’t get the best Ramones song, but he got one. I don’t envy the director that had to get this material cut down to under two hours. Pick it up and learn something.
