The 2012 documentary Basically Frightened
tells the story of Col. Bruce Hampton
through interviews and live concert footage. Hampton is a legend in the jam scene and perhaps the most well-respected musician according to his peers, many of which sat for interviews that are featured in Basically Frightened
including Warren Haynes, Mike Gordon, John Popper and Derek Trucks. Basically Frightened
is currently available as an “instant rental” on Vimeo
and is also up for sale via the movie’s website
. The film will be screened at Plaza Atlanta in Atlanta on August 15 and will be followed by a Q&A featuring Col. Bruce.
In recent days a number of snippets from the film have been shared on Guillotine Productions’ YouTube Channel. One of our favorite clips tells the story behind the tribute Phish paid to Col. Bruce on November 28, 1995 in Knoxville, TN. Take a look:
