WHAT IF? What if you were able to go back in time and have that rare second chance at a missed opportunity? Would you take the risk? Would you put your life on hold and try to make it happen? Would you proceed with caution or dive in head-first?
The year was 1985. Thousands of miles away from the sonic debauchery of the Sunset Strip, a group of teenage friends shared aspirations of glam rock grandeur. Rising from the ashes of countless garage jams and taking a page straight out of Hit Parader, a hungry, determined band was ultimately born. Fame and fortune were well within reach, as they toured the skating rink circuit of West Central Florida, but fate intervened and the group unceremoniously imploded…probably over some chick.
Countless questions remain. Will they find their long-lost band mates (particularly the bastards that still owe them money)? Can any of them still hold a tune? And who was that skank that broke up the band in the first place?
Failure might be their only option.
With pyrotechnics in their eyes, former bandmates Kyle Kruger and Steve McClure set out on a cross-country adventure in search of their rock and roll past. The permed hair, leopard skin prints, and all night parties are long gone, only to be replaced by male pattern baldness, oversized jeans, and the mundane grind of 9-5 jobs. Adding to the difficulty are family obligations, mortgages, a lack of musical gear, out-of-practice players, and personal insecurities; all of which stand in the way of reclaiming the magic they had as a band over twenty-five years ago.
Featuring candid interviews with some of the most influential musicians and industry professionals in the business. Their expert opinions, sound advice and career guidance help steer the way for the formidable task at hand.
It’s a story about a lifelong friendship and the struggles of dealing with the always present thought of “what if?” It’s about rediscovery, determination and failure. It’s a tale of those who once set out to achieve, but somehow fell short of their ambitions because, simply put, life got in the way.
Perhaps even better you (yes, YOU) can play a vital part in making this great documentary come to it’s logical conclusion. Joining the growing trend of fans directly funding music projects, Steve and Kyle are using the indiegogo.com site to raise the final funds to give the story an ending. For as little as $1 contribution you will be taking part in a great piece of 80s metal music history….and you get some great rewards for doing it – including the rather special mp3 compilation album AND all backers will be entered into a draw to win this rather awesome guitar.
