My favorite!
20 February 2019 | by Ru-DySee all my reviews

As far as movies about bands and music, this one is my all time favorite! It takes us back to the video tape/vcr days, and why it has not been released on dvd, is beyond me. It's really good, and if you see it once, you will dig it! With Roger Wilson and Clancy Brown starring, how can you go wrong? The music is great too, solid acting. I call for this one to be available on dvd! Rock on!
