"These are the artists we listened to on the way to set each morning and in the evenings with the dust, like bitter chalk, upon our teeth. Echoes of their passionate performances in our minds, for 150 days and nights, we took to the work of storytelling. May the musicians and songwriters who inspired us on our epic journey be an inspiration to you on yours," said Gore Verbinski, the film's Academy Award©-winning director.
