Preview: What the Hell Happened to Blood Sweat & Tears?

UPDATE: Screen #1 is sold out but Grail has opened a second simultaneous screen. USE THIS TIX LINK.

You remember BS&T; the band scored a long string of hits and helped pave the way for horn-flavored rock/pop. (For better and worse, that gave the world Chicago, but that’s another story.) What you may not know is the story of how the band was more or less blackmailed into touring behind the Iron Curtain, and the fallout from that tour. But thanks to director John Scheinfeld (whom I interviewed nearly 11 years ago when he made a film about Harry Nilsson) we have a new documentary. And I’m proud to say that I’ll be hosting a screening of What the Hell Happened to Blood Sweat & Tears? this coming Monday, as the latest installment of my monthly series, Music Movie Mondays at Grail Moviehouse here in Asheville.

But wait! It’s not just me, you and the film. We’ll be joined by none other than Jim Fielder. Jim’ of course, was a funding member of BS&T, played on all the group’s best-known material, and took part in the ill-fated tour referenced above. He’ll be on hand for a post-show Q&A. You don’t want to miss this special, one-night-only event. Every other Music Movie Monday so far has sold out, so get your tix now.
