'Who The Fuck Is That Guy'? The Fabulous Journey Of Michael Alago tells the astonishing story of a gay Puerto Rican kid growing up in a Hasidic Brooklyn neighborhood, who got on the subway one day and began a musical odyssey that helped shape the musical landscape across N.Y.C. and around the world. Directed by Drew Stone and produced by Michael Alex the film tells the incredible story of a cherished New York City icon. From rubbing elbows with N. Y. scene makers as an teenager at Max's Kansas City and CBGB, to being the architect of a rock 'n' roll renaissance as the 19 year-old talent booker at the legendary Ritz, to making history as a 24 year-old A&R exec, signing the biggest metal band in a generation in Metallica, Michael Alago was on fire. Working with artists ranging from White Zombie and Johnny Rotten to Cyndi Lauper and jazz legend Nina Simone, Alago was driven by a love for great music...ANY great music..Passion and excess would bring Alago crashing into the twin reapers of...
Director Drew Stone has created a truly insightful and honest look into the life and influence of a guy named Michael Alago - who is Michael Alago? Alago, through his passion for rock, punk, new age, etc. music, helped create the music scene of the late 20th century and right into the 21st Century! His passion was driven for the love of music and not the lust for fame.
He came from a world that offered little future or privilege for an ambitious person. But his intuitive self guided him to artist and new creative talents in the emerging rock scene of the late 20th century pop scene. And he found a means to bring them into the public eye. His own life full of societies bumps, rejection, and pain for a gay man - but his inner passion for music could not be stopped.
A great documentary on a little known person who had a big influence in the music world.
