Hey guys!
As I was going to bed last night, I started thinking that it could be really cool, if an entirely new documentary was made about River. One where his closest friends and family like Flea, Keanu Reeves, Joaquin, Summer, Rain, Heart and John Phoenix, Michael Stipe etc, tells us who River really was.. deep inside. About what really happened the night he died and about the things he may have changed in their life. SO far, as I have seen anyway, there isn't really a documentary where we really really get to know who he was. Please correct me if I am wrong!
Was wondering your thoughts on that?

Oh, and btw, what do you guys think about River bleached blond hair? Personally I'm not really fond of it. I like his natural blond hair, og his dark hair better

Wouldn't that be nice Simone? Even like sort of a 'dream come true' for some of us in here! But I doubt these people would ever be willing to share such personal details.

I'm with you on the bleach blonde hair. I actually never knew he had done that to his hair back then. Just discovered it recently when I "re-discovered" him again this year.

Hi Simone! I think that would be wonderful if it could be done, but honestly, anyone who tried I'd tell them, "good luck with that". Particularly, those people you mention have been very tight-lipped about River for a very long time because of the way River was screwed by the press after his passing. It's sad, but he and his friends and family were treated very poorly and I highly doubt they would open up to anyone about him now.

And no, I don't like River with bleached blonde hair! But I believe at the time, he was trying to land a role playing Andy Warhol, so he was playing the part. His "natural" hair wasn't really natural either. The studios and his agent made him highlight it all the time, I've read. His truly natural hair was dark brown, more like his brother's and sisters hair.

I agree with both of you. I don't think that it would ever be done. And I don't blame them for not wanting to talk about it. It would just be so amazing for all his fans to really get to know him, through those that knew him the best
Maybe a fan documentary could be done instead? Where his fans spoke about what he did for them, just by being him?

Yes...I guess that could be done Simone. It would have to be done very tastefully though or else it would look sort of "cheesy"...know what I mean? Are you a film maker?
