Want to know more about The Perfect Age of Rock 'n' Roll? Here's the deets:
According to rock 'n' roll lore, age 27 is a fateful milestone. From Robert Johnson, Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison to Kurt Cobain, many stars were lost at this too-young age.
World famous rock star Spyder (Kevin Zegers of Transamerica and Frozen fame) achieves fame and fortune with a smash hit debut album. This blinding success however, is built on the Faustian pact that capitalized on the genius of his long lost childhood best friend and band mate, Eric Genson, played by Jason Ritter of NBC’s The Event.
Now Spyder retreats to his small hometown after his sophomore effort flops, a harsh reality many music biz dynamos faces. Reconnecting with Eric after a seven year estrangement, the two recall their youthful ambitions and reexamine the choices they’ve made. Accompanied by the band’s ambitious, fiery manager, played by Taryn Manning of 8 Mile fame, the legendary music impresario August West, played by Peter Fonda, and a raucous crew of musicians, they set off on a cathartic journey along historic Route 66 that brings them closer to each other, their history and their destiny. Fueled by a stellar rock 'n' roll soundtrack that includes songs by Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Iggy and The Stooges, Alice in Chains, Muddy Waters, The Violent Femmes, Howlin' Wolf, Jane's Addiction, and many more, The Perfect Age of Rock 'N' Roll fully captures the energy, rebellion, and thrills of the rock lifestyle.
Okay less chatting, more watching. Enjoy our exclusive clips.
