Once dubbed the underground “mayor of New York,” Danny Fields (née Feinberg) has played a pivotal role in the music and culture of the late 20th century, working for The Doors, Cream, Lou Reed, and Nico, and managing groundbreaking artists like The Stooges, MC5 and The Ramones. DANNY SAYS follows Fields from Harvard Law dropout, to “hippie yenta” at Warhol’s Factory, to Director of Publicity at Elektra Records, to punk pioneer and beyond. Led by Fields’ hilariously droll commentary and largely crafted from over 250 hours of interviews and items from his immense archive (thousands of photographs, audio cassettes and ephemera), the film features outrageous anecdotes recounted by Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Judy Collins, Tommy Ramone, Lenny Kaye, Wayne Kramer, and John Cameron Mitchell, among many others. They tell the wild story of a man whose taste and opinion, once deemed defiant and radical, turned out to have been prescient.

“[A] highly entertaining screen memoir… Danny Fields’ reminiscences of the 1960s and 1970s are pure gold… The soundtrack, needless to say, is a mix-tape dream.”
– Dennis Harvey, Variety

“An enjoyable romp through several of pop culture’s most exciting scenes. From Harvard Law to punk, Danny Fields was a man who knew everyone.”
– John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

“You could make a convincing case that without Danny Fields, punk rock would not have happened.”
– Charlie Curkin, The New York Times
