San Francisco rock musician Chuck Prophet has released a new video—Part II of a musical tour of San Francisco, named for his newest album, “Temple Beautiful.”
After recording his last album in Mexico City, says Chuck, “I was looking to make a record closer to home.”
I shot much of the footage earlier this year, along with Richard Gunderman and first-time director-producer Darrell Flowers, an old pal, usually using two Canon 5D Mark II cameras for interviews and musical performance.
Part I of Chuck’s Temple Beautiful video tour was released in February. In Part II we hear about various San Francisco characters, as we visit Chuck’s home and studio and many of his old haunts in the Mission District and North Beach. He and his band, The Mission Express, play “He Came from So Far Away,” “I Felt Like Jesus,” “Little Boy/Little Girl” (with his wife Stephanie Finch, in their living room), and others.
“There’s more to San Francisco than just Alcatraz,” says Chuck. “There’s a lot of different San Franciscos, and they all kinda overlap. I think we lean toward the mythical version of events. We are looking for heroes, and these characters filter to the top.”
