Louder Than Love: The Grande Ballroom Story is about the legendary Detroit concert hall that was the epicenter of the rock music scene which started in the late 1960’s. The Grande helped to break some of America’s most iconic rock bands including MC5, The Stooges and Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes. Led Zeppelin, Cream, B.B. King, Janis Joplin, Pink Floyd and The Who played The Grande Ballroom on a regular basis.
The film, produced and directed by Detroit native Tony D’Annunzio, made its world premiere in 2012 and is finally coming to home video on June 10th via MVD Entertainment Group. D’Annunzio amassed more than 75-plus hours of interviews with artists and other insiders from The Grande’s heyday including musical icons B.B. King, Alice Cooper, Roger Daltrey, Scott Morgan, Mark Farner, Tom Morello, Wayne Kramer, Lemmy, Ted Nugent, Henry Rollins, Don Was, Slash, Dick Wagner and James Williamson.
