Though they released just three albums in the early ’70s, Memphis’s Big Star has endured as one of the most acclaimed and influential of all bands, inspiring REM, The Replacements, Elliott Smith, Wilco, The Flaming Lips and countless others. But mainstream success always eluded them, and failed record sales and personal breakdowns led to the band’s quick demise. With in-depth interviews and never-before-seen footage of the band, BIG STAR: NOTHING CAN HURT ME finally tells the full story of these unsung heroes of rock.
