Steve 'Lips' Kudlow,
A rock documentary ranging from interviews with seen-it-all veterans such as Ozzy Osbourne, Gene Simmons, Steven Tyler, to the up-and-comers of the era such as Faster Pussycat, Poison, and London. A revealing and fascinating chronicle on the 1980s scene of excess.
In retrospect, the film is actually funny in spots. Newbies such as London, Odin, and Seduce were quoted as saying "I will make it as a rock star" when asked what will happen if they don't make it. "We WILL make it." Amusing that they disappeared forever just months after this movie (and those statements) was made.
*** out of ****. Out of print and tough to find, but well worth the effort.
MPAA: Rated R for graphic, pervasive language and brief nudity.
