Synopsis: Stillwater, an early 70’s rock band, has the sound and the look and Rolling Stone Magazine assigns teen William Miller to their story. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime for the teen as he hits the road with his favourite band and discovers the price of fame, the value of family and the limits of friendship.
Trivia: The film is director Cameron Crowe’s semi-autobiographical account of life as a young Rolling Stone reporter. The actual group Crowe first toured with was The Allman Brothers Band. Gregg Allman distrusted him, and kept asking if he was a narc. Crowe was in a near-fatal plane crash while traveling with The Who. The character of Russell Hammond is based on Glenn Frey of Eagles.
