These days, the major label music industry isn’t much different than a Coca-Cola factory, mostly pumping out high calorie, zero substance acts. But things were different in the ’70s, with executives taking more risks, and musicians allowed and expected to live on the edge. Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and Terence Winter are taking audiences to that world with “Vinyl” and a new trailer for the HBO series is here.
Bobby Cannavale leads the show as a coked out and very shouty record label honcho who does away with decency all in the name of trying to save his company. Meanwhile, no shortage of personalities from the world of punk, disco, and hip hop populate the picture, and oh hey, that looks like Andy Warhol. It all looks like a wild ride but let’s hope there’s something to balance out the hedonism.
Also featuring Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, James Jagger, and Paul Ben-Victor, “Vinyl” arrives on HBO in January. Watch below.
