Storyline

Tribute is a feature rockumentary about music's strangest subculture: tribute bands. Tribute bands go to extraordinary lengths to re-create the experience of rock supergroups like Kiss, Journey, Judas Priest and Queen. The result can be anything from an emotionally potent nostalgia trip, to something more like Spinal Tap. Tribute follows the on- and off-stage struggles of tribute bands and their fans in their quest to live their rock dreams. Together they face band members quitting, soul-sucking day jobs, even bandmates who take the impersonation far too far. Written by Anonymous

This documentary tells the story of several cover bands. The bands in question include Sheer Heart Attack (Queen), Larger than Life (KISS), and Missing Links (The Monkeys). One fan of Sheer Heart Attack, dubbed the "Superfan," was particularly interesting and scary. He saw everything in his life through Queen-colored glasses, had an extensive set of T-shirts with a long story behind each one, and even had a set routine for show nights.

One was reminded of another documentary about obsessive fans: "Trekkies" (which I just noticed was directed by the editor of "The Search for John Gissing").

When I saw this at Cinequest (the San Jose, CA film festival) on 3/1/2002, Larger than Life came out after the film in full KISS costumes and makeup.
