On a train, Keith and Mick chat about the blues and the Rolling Stones are born. Douglas and Joe chat in front of a New Jersey music store, and a band is born: as Douglas's sister tells us, it's one of many that don't make it. We follow Douglas from high school (1963-64), when he sees himself as a loser, into the band, playing drums and singing backup - then as the front man. There are tensions, a breakup, an audition in front of a major player, and decisions. Douglas pursues Grace, a country-club gal with hip sensibilities who believes in him. There's also his father, working class, wanting Douglas to apply himself as he watches his own life fill with regrets.

Did You Know?
Set in suburban New Jersey in the 1960s. See more
Orlando's Army uniform has brass insignia on the right lapel, but it is missing from the left. The name tag above the right breast pocket is missing. As a private first class, he would have been in the Army long enough to have at least one or two ribbons, which should be above the left breast pocket. He should have a rifle qualification badge above the left breast pocket. He wears the unit insignia of the 25th Infantry Division on his left shoulder, which means that he was in the division at that time. The division, however, was in Viet Nam, making it highly unlikely that he would be at home in the U.S., wearing the winter uniform of a division in the tropics during the summer. See more
