>> jimmy: yeah. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: clever friends. >> it's not really me. the only reason why i feel comfortable showing that on national tv is those pictures are not me. >> jimmy: yet they are you in a way. they also are you. >> i would have been like that i'm sure. >> jimmy: i think your documentary was great. >> thank you. >> jimmy: i personally am a guy, when i was in college, i spent a good five, six hours a week in tower records in tempe, arizona. scouring, looking for records. and you made a documentary. i didn't know any of this stuff about tower records. >> good. >> jimmy: explain the basic idea. >> so basically i'm from sacramento, which is where tower was originated. and tower, the founder of tower, russ solomon, amazing character. he started selling used 78s out of his father's drugstore in 1939. >> jimmy: tower drugstore? >> yes.
the tower drugstore. and eventually it evolved into opening the first tower records in 1960. by the time they went bankrupt in 2006, they had over 192 stores around the world. and so when i found out about that drugstore, because coming from sacramento, tower's a point of civic pride. but i didn't know much about its history. when i found out about that drugstore, i instantly just went, well, that sounds like a documentary. if it starts there and ends there and it involves the music industry, i'm sure there are a lot of really great stories. >> you have all these people, elton john, bruce springsteen, dave grohl, talking about what tower meant to them. dave grohl worked at a tower records store. >> he worked at tower records in virginia. >> jimmy: elton john would go in all the time. >> elton, they would open the store early for elton. he would have his limo driver carry a box, elton had a list of records and he'd buy three, one for each one of his houses. he did that for decades. >> those are great.
just going through the record store. now we get everything so easily. it's not the same. i know we romanticize everything, but -- >> it's like the way i look at it, i don't remember -- when i look at a certain album i don't remember, i remember where i was when i downloaded that, it was so great. know what i mean? >> jimmy: i was at home. >> i was at home in my underwear. great, oh, and then i just danced the night away. so for me, it's something about record stores and going and that physical interaction, that personal connection. but then also tower itself, it was such an amazincompany. there were people that worked at tower. they started as clerks. they worked there for 30 years. ended up basically the highest of the food chain there within the company. there were people that spent a huge chunk of their life there. >> jimmy: i was one of them. >> and then when they went bankrupt, they all had to fire each other. so it's really a very human story. it's really not so much a documentary about the music industry so much as it is about this misfit family that came
together and took over the world and had a lot of fun doing it. >> jimmy: it's excellent. especially if you're into that sort of thing. it's called? >> "all things must pass." >> jimmy: colin hanks, everybody. thank you, colin. be right back with edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros!
