Comic Actor/Musician duo Jack Black and Kyle Gass also know as Tenacious D are going to be releasing The Complete Masterworks 2 DVD on November 4th. This 2 disc DVD release will includes almost 3 hours of footage including a behind the scenes documentary with Tenacious D as they filmed The Pick Of Destiny. Also included are live performances, videos, and also appearances on SNL and Conen O’Brien.
I have been a fan of Tenacious D since I discovered them one night on HBO back in the late 90’s. I believe there were only six episodes that were shown and soon it disappeared though as per Kyle Gass, HBO was looking to take over creative control and they band preferred to do it on their own.
In 2001 the band released their debut CD Tenacious D with a full backing band including Dave Grohl. They toured constantly and I am happy to say I saw them twice that year, once headlining to Agora and the other when they opened for Weezer at CSU. I witnessed the Sax-a-boom…
Their first DVD collection The Complete Master Works was released in 2003. The DVD included all of their HBO episodes making that alone worth the purchase. Full of videos and live perfomances I must have watched it a dozen times the week I bought it. The duo is hilarious.
The movie Tenacious D in The Pick Of Destiny was released in theaters in 2006. It was a funny movie but…well you need to see it for yourself if you have not. That’s all I am going to say about that. The soundtrack to the movie was all Tenacious D as well making it their second CD release.
Now comes The Complete Masterworks 2. I am very interested to see what this DVD will contain.
But who can wait???
I found this small clip on MySpace and can not wait to see this DVD….
One thought on “It’s Tenacious D Time (again…)”
I am a fan. I loved the show but hated the movie. I saw that tour with them, Weezer and Jimmy Eat World in Columbus. I had pretty decent tickets from working at the radio station, my friends had nose blood seats. They were rather resentful of my girlfriend at the time who got to sit me. In hindsight I should have left her at home and made me friend battle each other for the right to sit next to me a good seat.
