BMG has announced that Elton, U2, Joan Jett, Cameron Crowe, Ringo Starr, and Nick Cave are appearing in Angelheaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan and T. Rex. The documentary makes its debut in June at the Tribeca Film Festival.
The former said: ''Bill and I want to move Marc Bolan from footnote to headline. While still a beloved figure in the UK and amongst some musicians and music fans, we feel he never received his due especially considering his enduring influence. Bolan's unique spin on rock & roll, use of rhythm, poetic wordplay, and fearlessness deserve a fresh look. This film is neither a biopic nor a 'making of' documentary rather it is a celebration of creativity looking backward and forward at the same time.''
