He was a magnificent movie director, my very favorite... He lived a
long life... It's strange that he died the same day as Ingmar Bergman,
another world class director...
Another director that Brian DePalma ripped off.
Didn't he confuse The Who with The Yardbirds when he was filming Blow Up? At
least that's the story I heard.
Keith Relf - if there were ever a cautionary tale for not playing electric
instruments in the bathtub.
You just perpetuated two rumors.
Antonioni first asked the Who but the Who for whatever reason said no then
he asked the Yardbirds, who begrudgingly did the instrument smashing which
is what the script called for.
The Who broke instruments every big show in those days. Beck only destroyed
things when he was pissed off.
Keith Relf was not playing his guitar in the bathtub when he was
electrocuted although he had recently taken a bath he was playing his guitar
near a fireplace and put his foot on a metal grill.
