The trailer for “Learning To Live Together: The Return Of Mad Dogs & Englishmen” an upcoming music documentary revisiting the event, tour and eventually the film “Mad Dogs & the Englishmen” has been released. The film will premiere at the Woodstock Film Festival on the last week of this month before a limited theatrical run in October.
The film is directed by Jesse Lauter and shifts between Joe Cocker’s 1970 tour through clips from the original “Mad Dogs” film, and footage from the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s commemorative gig at the Lockn’ Festival in 2015. The film also features interviews with the surviving players of the original shows, along with key players that span generations.
The Tedeschi Trucks Band footage is a result of the band wanting to work with Joe Cocker in 2014 in tradition with Lockn’ annual presentation of a special, one-time get-together performance, however, Cocker bowed out last minute likely due to lung cancer that would later take his life later that year in December. In honor of his memory the following year Tedeschi Trucks Band, along with Warren Haynes, Chris Robinson, and John Bell filling in for Cocker’s vocals, performed for nearly four hours at Lockn’ 2015.
