Knoxville in Detroit
Johnny Knoxville (with help from Palladium Boots) recently spent time in Detroit to film Detroit Lives, a mini documentary on our city. Teaming up with Ko Melina from the Dirtbombs, Phil Cooley from Slows and other Detroit Icons, Knoxville ventures on a history tour of the neighborhoods. The videos do a good job of displaying inspiring images from around town, leaving viewers with a shimmer of hope for modern motown.
My favorite clip comes in Part Two when they film the old Cass Tech then turn to the new, modern building. It just shows how the media can manipulate what the viewers see.
