Brother, they're ain't nuthin' like rock'n roll!
9 November 2001 | by (Longmont: Colorado US) – See all my reviews

This here little telemovie is about as kosher as Black Sabbath in concert playing a set of spoons!

Peter Phelps is Mickey LaGrange, a small-time roadie for a heavy metal band. Mickey is not content with his lot and yearns for the bright lights himself, dreaming of success, the echo of his own riffs, and if the truth be known - probably his own groupies! Like Bon Scott, co-founder and lead singer of the incomparable AC/DC once sang on behalf of many an aspiring rock star, "It's a long way, to the top if u wanna rock'n roll!" Is Mickey ready for the trip?

Watch this and you won't really care!

Phelpsy was the flavor of the month at the time and took on this role just 18 months or so before he landed his sometime gig with BAYWATCH. Scripted by David Young, you would be flat-out trying to memorise any meaningful dialog from the film and Joe Pickering's cinematography is competent rather than breathtaking.

Maybe during a non-ratings period and midway through your fourth bourbon and coke it gets better - let me know?
