The Daddy of Rock n Roll
Wesley Willis Documentary
Now Showing + More!

I have always wondered if the humans that society labels as “insane” are really the ones that should be committed to the nuthouse. Especially when as a country we constantly vote humans into power that do not give a fuck about the us or the planet on which we all live! Also, have you ever noticed that someone can be so creative, that he or she becomes disconnected to what we all see as normal?
Wesley Willis is an example of a human that most of society would want to classify as off his rocker. He was a huge creative talent; not only was he a prolific recording artist, but he also was a sensational illustrator. Wesley Willis was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 1989 because he said was hearing demons. Maybe it was these voices that spoke to his inner genius and helped to keep his reality in check. There has been several documentaries made about this brother who was in command of everything weird. Today, CVLT Nation would like to share with you The Daddy of Rock n Roll. I really like this film, because Wesley Willis himself was a part of the creative process. When you watch it, you will realize how much love that his friends had for him and vice versa. Another interesting fact is that indirectly, this film examines how we as a society see paranoid schizophrenics as almost subhumans, and do not give fuck about treating them with the real care that they deserve. On so many levels, Wesley Willis was on some real punk rock shit – when you watch this film, recognize that the insane might just be more sane than us all. After the jump, have a look at Daddy of Rock n Roll, plus a huge gallery of Daddy of Rock n Roll art work!
