First Aired: Sunday June 30, 2002
"Behind The Music" chronicles the personal
lives of many of the most popular musical
acts of the rock era, and occasionally strays
into related subjects, such as Woodstock, Hair
and radio pioneer Alan Freed, as well as 'year' episodes,
which tell the events and issues of certain years
through the music of the time.
The series was born following the success of a VH1 documentary about heroin abuse.
The producers strictly follow a policy of having
complete cooperation from their subjects, even when
delving into embarrassing issues, which prevents the show
from falling into the pitfall of tabloid sleaze. They hunt
down possible interviewees, sometimes using detectives, and
ask direct, probing questions, which prompt revealing, and
brutally honest (we hope) responses.
Nominated for the Emmy for Outstanding Non-Fiction Series
for four consecutive years, BTM has established a rigid
formula. We explore humble beginnings, meteoric rises,
major setbacks, personal struggles, crippling vices,
devasting falls, and climaxes that include revivals, deaths,
and career changes.Unfortunately (for us), success
has crept in. As BTM became VH1's top-rated show,
it also has become a vehicle for commercialism. In 2000,
the market was flooded with BTM books, CD's, and videos,
and the recording industry started to realise the direct
influence the show has on music sales. Vanilla Ice reportedly
sold four times more albums after his episode aired, and many
back catalogue sales have increased. So the later episodes have
veered away from the 'classic' artists, and feature trendy, marketable newer acts.
Hence, there sometimes is precious little drama to the artists'
stories, and the series has turned rather uneven. Still, there
is an occasional worthy tale, though VH1 produces only three or
four new episodes per season these days. It's sister show, "VH1's Storytellers",
has been revived in 2006, so there is much interest in continuing production,
but VH1 is being extremely tight-lipped about the subject.
