Rubin/Def Jam doc

ROOM 712, WEINSTEIN HALL: Rick Rubin returns to the NYU dorm room where he dreamed up Def Jam Recordings in a nifty short-form doc created for Rolling Stone Films. Rick Was Here premiered on Rollingstone.com just hours before the start of the Def Jam Recordings 30th Anniversary Concert on the other side of the Brooklyn Bridge. Check out the rest of the talking heads in this piece, which packs a lot of history into its 10-minute duration. "Nothing that happened was intentional," Rubin says of Def Jam’s party-down early days in the mid-’80s. "Everything was trying to make something cool to play for our friends that they would like." That unfettered impulse worked out pretty well, didn’t it? (10/17a)
