R.I.P. Ken Russell and Thank You for 'Tommy'

Ken Russell took music, sex and imagery to the next level. He was a true visionary and trailblazer in the arts.

But what I love him for is directing 'Tommy'! Tommy is The Who's classic rock opera. It was so innovative for its time. It was filled with talented stars and musicians. When I first saw this movie, I was hooked and obsessed. Especially by these particular scenes and performances

Eric Clapton

Tina Turner

Ann Margret

Thank you, Ken. You gave me so much from this flick.
