Jimi Hendrix, Rod Stewart & ZZ Top Among Acts On 'Dogtown And Z-Boys' Soundtrack

Jimi Hendrix, Rod Stewart, and ZZ Top are all on the soundtrack for the new skateboarding film Dogtown And Z-Boys, which opens April 26 in limited release. Echoing the documentary’s subject-the groundbreaking Zephyr Skating Team that emerged in the Santa Monica/Venice, California, area in the early ’70s-the 10-track album combines hits and favorite album tracks from artists that were popular at the time.

Among the best-known selections are Stewart’s “Maggie May,” Joe Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain Way,” ZZ Top’s “La Grange,” and the James Gang’s “Funk #49.” Also on the album are Ted Nugent’s “Motor City Madhouse,” Alice Cooper’s “Generation Landslide,” T. Rex’s “Children Of The Revolution,” Iggy Pop & the Stooges’ “Gimme Danger,” and Thin Lizzy’s “Bad Reputation.”

The inclusion of Hendrix’s “Ezy Rider,” meanwhile, is something of a coup since the Hendrix family is notoriously difficult about licensing his material for soundtrack projects.

The Dogtown And Z-Boys soundtrack album comes out May 21.
