On February 13th, at the 53rd annual Grammy Awards, Eagle Rock Entertainment was bestowed the Grammy award for “Best Long Form Video” for When You’re Strange: A Film About The Doors.
Produced by Wolf Films/Strange Pictures, in association with Rhino Entertainment, When You’re Strange was directed by award-winning writer/director Tom DiCillo, and narrated by Johnny Depp. This first ever feature documentary about The Doors was released by Eagle Rock Entertainment on June 29, 2010 on DVD and Blu-ray, after it’s initial theatrical release. An incredible account of the band’s history, from their 1966 inception to Jim Morrison’s passing in 1971, this film has been featured at several film festivals, including Sundance, Deauville, San Sebastian, and Berlin.
“To say we are thrilled, is quite an understatement,” states Mike Carden, Eagle Rock Entertainment’s President of Operations North America. “It is a true honor to represent this caliber of artist, and to be acknowledged by the Recording Academy for this work.”
Following last year’s “Best Rock Instrumental Performance” award for his moving version of The Beatles “A Day In The Life,’ from Eagle Rock Entertainment’s 'Performing This Week…Live At Ronnie Scotts’ CD, Jeff Beck also won two Grammys for “Best Pop Instrumental Performance” for “Nessun Dorma,” and “Best Rock Instrumental Performance,” for “Hammerhead,” from his 2010 album Emotion & Commotion (Rhino). Eagle Rock will release his new DVD, Rock ‘N’ Roll Party Honoring Les Paul, on February 22.
