Whatever his role, Fieldss over-arching objective was to bring people together. That was one of Dannys things, says Kaye. He was a matchmaker, whether it was bringing a band to a record label or putting creative people in the same room and the majority of cases that room was Maxs Kansas Citys back room.
Dannys a connector, hes a ga line, a place where things are liable to erupt, says Iggy Pop in the documentary. I imagine that Dannys legacy, aside from the brilliant route hes chosen to live his life, is how he has enhanced the well-being of others by being a connector.
Ive gratified so many brilliant and astounding people through Danny, adds Bond. I like to think that through these threads and connectivities we have all become better people, artists and contributors to the ongoing dialogue. Hopefully these threads will continue to raise human consciousness through art and ideas long after were gone.
The film features an incredible cast of characters, which is no real astound when looking back at Fieldss circle of friends. Dannys defined are truly the people that made the world we live in today, says Toller. At least all the good stuff of art, music, and movie. These were the revolutionaries of the 60 s and 70 s that brought about what we know as alternative culture.
While the documentary appears back at Fieldss career and has the feeling of a retrospective to it, according to McCain, who got to know Fields while working on Please Kill Me, Fields is not particularly the reflective form. He always seems ahead and doesnt dwell on the past, says McCain. Dannys attitude is the best is yet to come.
