Kenneth Barlow: We were punks, man. Shit. Groupies used to come up at night. No big thing, you know. Lay around naked. No names. What do we know? Dining in bed. Silver trays. Them wearing garter belts and stockings which we supplied which was not a cheap thing to do at that time however we did... so anyway, hey, man listen; Keith, Keith gets up one morning but he doesn't know morning. Day night, night day, he doesn't know. He wants to know if it's day or night, you, know? What the hell? I mean, you know. So he...

Let it Rock-Hopper, David Hess, it should be great!
11 March 2004 | by gainsbarre13See all my reviews

Roger Corman bought the rights to this film and released it here as "Let it Rock". That's the version I've seen. This movie really has no point, but, Dennis Hopper is off the meat racks and out of his mind in this!!! He's truly demented and wonderful. But that's the only worthwhile aspect. They also use footage of TSOL from Suburbia. I read that David Hess (who's also in the movie as "the arab") said, "White Star was an interesting film-it was the story of Jesus put into a heavy metal situation! I played Judas and Dennis Hopper played St. Peter." I don't know how much different the "White Star" cut is but "Let it Rock" is not about that. All in all the music sucks, David Hess isn't seen enough, but Dennis Hopper is great!!!
