This is not a classic episode of the great Columbo but it is still watchable. Here as the title suggests Columbo investigates the death of a rock star. Unfortunately this seems to a real product of it's time and even though it was released in 1991 it has the feel of an inferior to Columbo 80's TV show, from the awful power pop soundtrack and the terrible wardrobe. The clues that Columbo solves do not seems as clever as usual and the script here really good of done with a lot of tweaking. Saying that it is always fun to see Peter Faulk in the role and this is okay to pass the time, but there are much much greater Columbo's to begin with than this.
