Storyline

A journey in the passenger seat of the ultimate solo tour. For former Squeeze frontman Glenn Tilbrook, touring meant 18 wheelers, hotel suites and police-escorted limos. Almost 20 years later, like many other established artists, Tilbrook's music now finds its audience through an independent route. In November 2001, to support the release of his debut solo CD, Tilbrook embarked on a different kind of independent route as he took to the road in America: One man, two guitars and a mobile home. "Glenn Tilbrook: One for the Road" follows him on every step of that journey: arriving in the States; picking up his mobile home; performing the shows; meeting the fans; camping at campgrounds; packing away his guitars. All access, all of the time. It's an intimate look at how an established musician adjusts to his new independent surroundings. It's a commentary on the current state of the music industry. But, most importantly, it's a human-interest story that transcends its musical base. Written by Tony Horkins

A documentary well worth your time
9 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is an indie film with a limited release, so if you see it playing at a theater near you, JUMP at the chance to see it.

Amy Pickard elicits insightful comments from Glenn Tilbrook about his life and work. It is a fun movie, not one that explores the "deep dark excesses of rock n'roll". Rather, it is chock full of great concert footage and good times. Even if you haven't a clue as to Glenn's contribution to modern music, it is well worth your time to see this film.

I found the film to be very entertaining - there are plenty of opportunities to laugh, and it was hard to suppress the urge to sing along during the footage of him on stage.
