The Dragon Story

Television (Excerpts) – 2015

Dragon have produced some of Australasian pop music's classic anthems ('April Sun in Cuba', 'Are You Old Enough'). This 2015 documentary charts 40 rock'n'roll years: chart success, drugs, fame, failure, family, survival. The first excerpt looks at the band facing early success and tragedy; the second covers the impact of the 1998 death of singer Marc Hunter, especially on his brother Todd. The doco screened in the Prime Rocks slot. "Made with care and quite a lot of love", praised NZ Herald’s Greg Dixon, "by turns, sad and uplifting, which is no mean feat."

If anyone of any age lasted through Tuesday's Dragon documentary on Prime without air guitaring, knee-drumming or actual singing along, they need their pulse checked ... This was a moving, hilarious and irresistibly catchy piece of history.
