Quotes

Mark Mahoney: I'm going tell you a story of vice and of glory and how it was back in the day. The yellow brick road it ain't, it's the streets of sinners, not of saints. It's LA's Champs De Sleesay. I'm going to make it funky in the style of super junky poets of the ain't going to school. And we'll ride east to west in a short that's the best. So lean back, dig the ride and be cool.

Starts out very promising
18 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You won't be bored at all watching this film. It is full of interesting nuggets about the Strip but it is so disjointed in its telling. Some of the important people in the history of the Strip tell some great old stories, but many of them have little relevant stories to tell. I have a certain nostalgic feeling for the Strip myself where I probably spent over a hundred nights in the 70's being a bad boy and seeing some remarkable music.

Rodney Binginheimer who should be able to tell great stories about the glam era on the Strip has surprisingly little to add. Mickey Rourke whom I admire as an actor and some tattoo artist guy have a lot of screen time but add little to the proceedings other than the viewer wanting to figure out if Rourke is still using after all these years or not. On the plus side you have some great comedians telling stories, STeve Jones from the Sex Pistols and Johnny Depp and some other nice story tellers, but there are just as many folks involved that probably should not have been. I am sorry, but Kelly Osbourne is just too young to be nostalgic about anything. It is a really disjointed film, but always interesting in spite of itself.
