Local Filmmaker to Release Lester Bangs Documentary

July 2013

San Diego Troubadour contributor Raul Sandelin needs your help! The Grossmont College English professor has tackled the challenge of producing a DVD documentary about Lester Bangs, a 60’s/70’s rock journalist whose teenage years were spent freelance writing for Rolling Stone from his mom’s apartment in El Cajon.
