Tried it on a recommend against better judgement.

Might be better if high but for a sober rock lover just another bad teen drama. No spoilers other than if you want a rock coming of age movie watch american grafiti.

A very tight screenplay and an even tighter soundtrack!

It's really a piece of art. I'd place it in same category as contemporary period dramas like Forrest Gump - a rich and detailed story line accentuated by its characteristic soundtrack. The plot is based on golden age of rock 'n roll - early 70s.

The story line works on parallels: much like the music of that time, the young protagonist also faces some moral dilemmas early on during his adolescence - should he continue to remain a mama's boy and do as told or should he give in to the temptation of experimenting and temptation of drugs.

And the movie very carefully shows us two-three parallel journeys of realization: first one, the young and fascinated teen who realizes that best place to be is at home; second one, a rock star who reconciles to reality that true companionship is most important and third, the fan girl who decides to move on in life (well, there were more but these are the top three).

It's a movie well deserving of an academy award for screenplay because the director/writer actually didn't get seduced only by the music.

1973 Part II

Anyone who was there will notice that this film captures almost perfectly what it was like when the music appeared. I was on stage with Led Zeppelin, Johnny Winter, etc. I could never convey the excitement and love of this era's music but this film absolutely did. Thank you Cameron for taking the time and effort to portray this PERFECT time of life. We were special, gifted, enlightened to be able to experience these events.

The music clips were absolutely capturing the element of life as a teen in 1973. God Bless everyone who was involved with this film, I have never seen anything like this that took me back to when I was this young. I feel so forlorn that life is so different now given the musical options we have and rarely listen to anything now. Sigh.

High recommend for those who were there, for those who wanted to be there, and for those who have no clue what it was like then. I feel so sorry for anyone who missed this era. Thank GOD I was!
