PETER CASE: A MILLION MILES AWAY (1:30:00)
From the frigid suburbs of Buffalo NY, to his early years living and busking on the streets of San Francisco, to formative experiences with punk band The Nerves and L.A. power pop legends The Plimsouls, to his decades-long solo career, Peter Case has lived a life of constant change, soaring highs and soul-crushing lows. "A Million Miles Away" looks to walk a million miles in Case’s shoes, as he balances his passion for writing and performing with a life that sometimes threatened to spin out of control. He is an under-appreciated treasure whose complicated story is at once tragic and uplifting, heartbreaking and hopeful. 40 years into his musical journey, his artistic calling remains lit by a flame that is still trimmed and burning brightly.
