From the mind of musician Mick Jagger, the eyes of director Martin Scorsese, and the fingers of writers Rich Cohen and Terence Winter comes HBO’s Vinyl. Per the press release, this “new drama series explores the drug- and sex-fueled music business of the 1970s New York at the dawn of punk, disco, and hip-hop.” And it certainly does this in grand fashion.
HBO’s Vinyl stars two-time Emmy® winning actor Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, the head of American Century Records. In the process of selling his money-losing business to a German music company, he has “a life-altering event.” It wasn’t until after surviving the collapse of an NYC music hall does this epiphany hit.
Richie’s new-found love of music (and re-involvement with drugs) leads to the cancellation of the sale of his business. But this is just Step 1 in the destruction of Richie Finestra. He not only damages the relationship with his business partners but that with his wife played by Olivia Wilde. These scenes are crazy fun to watch. And all of this takes place in the first two episodes.
If you’ve only seen the 2-hour pilot episode, here’s what you can expect to see in the remaining nine episodes:
