Status: Partially Found

Behind The Music was a musical documentary series that ran on VH1 from 1997 to 2014 becoming one of VH1's longest running programs. Created by Jeff Gaspin and Gay Rosenthal and narrated by Jim Forbes, the show profiles mostly famous musicians, locations, DJ's, years and movies that had a cultural impact on the music industry. All of the show's 244 episodes would only be aired once and never again, causing a lot of the show's episodes to be lost to time.

Lost Episodes[edit | edit source]

The VH1 website still lists the show and all it's episodes, but they are not viewable. Whenever you click on an episode, some text appears that says "This Video Is Currently Unavailable Due to current rights and restrictions, this video is unavailable, but feel free to check back later. In the meantime, why not watch something else?". Although the episodes are not viewable on VH1's website, it does help on listing all the episodes and their subjects. [1]

Cancelled Episodes[edit | edit source]

The show has very little episodes that were cancelled. The most notable one is the one on Scott Weiland (lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver). It was announced back in March 2009 that Weiland was announced as one of the first artists to sign on to the series along side Lil Wayne.[2] While Lil Wayne's episode got made and aired on September 10, 2009, Weiland's episode never aired or possibly never made. In March 2018, three years after Weiland's death, his Wildabouts band mate Doug Grean revealed that VH1 didn't interview him enough for the episode and that's why the episode was never completed.[3] Although it didn't say who else VH1 interview for the cancelled episode like his band mates in Stone Temple Pilots or Velvet Revolver. It's unknown how far production on the episode went before it got canned.
