After years of litigation, the documentary MC5: A True Testimonial has been cleared for release, once music licenses are secured. While the deaths of Rob Tyner and Fred Smith mean that there can be no victory lap for these boys like the one the Stooges have enjoyed for the last eight years (and they were only a band for seven, back in the day), general availability of this film -- maybe the best of its kind that I've seen (um, on bootleg DVD) -- would do a lot to restore the luster to the Five's legacy, in this fan's opinion. The filmmakers have a Facebook group and are trying to gauge interest via this poll. You know what to do.
