Nearly 55 of the biggest names in music — including AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler, Marilyn Manson, SYSTEM OF A DOWN's Serj Tankian and TOOL's Maynard James Keenan — deliberate on the current state of the industry, work/life balance, and their personal inspirations in the revealing new documentary "All We Are Saying", premiering on Showtime on Wednesday, March 8 at 8 p.m. PT/ET. The film is actor/director Rosanna Arquette's follow-up to her widely praised directorial debut, "Searching for Debra Winger", which premiered on Showtime in 2003.
In "All We Are Saying", which premiered to acclaim at last year's Tribeca Film Festival, Rosanna Arquette uses her accessible, reverential interview style to provoke brilliant insight from an eclectic mix of artists. Revealing moments include:
* Steven Tyler discussing how internet downloading has greatly diminished the AEROSMITH catalog value.
* Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M, on why hip-hop has trounced rock 'n' roll, and how Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are today's Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
