Solid Gold

I love Jake’s other show, “DISGRACELAND,” and this show is a solid companion. It’s a creative retelling of these musician’s lives that are honest, poetic, and brutal.
Season 1 was incredible and 2 episodes in to Jim Morrison’s take is already shaping up to be just as good. Buckle up and crank it loud.
