Louder Than Love: The Grande Ballroom Story
Louder Than Love: The Grande Ballroom Story
Directed by: Tony D'Annunzio, Karl Rausch / English
2011 / Documentary, History, Music / 75 minutes

While the West Coast was grooving to "Summer of Love" in 1967, Detroit was pumping out a hard-driving, gritty, raw sound. At the epicenter of this seminal music scene stood the Grande Ballroom, Detroit's original rock and roll palace. That sound was LOUDER THAN LOVE.

In the late 1960s, the Grande helped to break some of America's most iconic rock bands including MC5, Iggy and the Stooges and Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes, who influenced local musicians and inspired bands all over the U.S. and Great Britain. Acts such as Led Zeppelin, Cream, B.B. King, Janis Joplin, Pink Floyd and the Who played the Grande main stage on a regular basis.

Using a Sony 24P HDCAM, D'Annunzio amassed more than 60 hours of interviews with artists and other insiders from The Grande's heyday including musical icons B.B. King, Alice Cooper, Roger Daltrey, Scott Morgan, Mark Farner, Tom Morello, Wayne Kramer, Lemmy, Ted Nugent, Henry Rollins, Don Was, Slash, Dick Wagner, and James Williamson. "We have incredible 8mm film of The Who performing "Tommy" for the first time, including an audio recording by Pete Townsend explaining "Tommy" to The Grande audience. Both have never been seen or heard in any documentary," D'Annunzio notes.
