Movies And Specials: 'Cornerstones Of Rock'

Synopsis: A nostalgic celebration of the local "garage bands" that rose to national prominence in the 1960s and '70s and remain popular today with their sing-along hits. The local groups from the Chicago area who defined this era reunite onstage at WTTW's Grainger Studio: The Ides of March, The Buckinghams, The Cryan Shames, The New Colony Six, The Shadows of Knight, The McCoys, and The American Breed. Each group plays its greatest hits and then gathers together to offer up two special tributes: to “Get It On” by Chase, and to the late Mitch Aliotta as they perform a rousing rendition of his iconic "Lake Shore Drive."
