Director: Cameron Crowe

In Crowe's semi-autobiographical account of life as a young Rolling Stone reporter, a nerdy, 15-year-old music geek (Fugit) gets hired to follow the rock group Stillwater on tour. Rock dreams come true as hotels are trashed, virginity is lost to groupies, and drugs are done. And they say it's the devil's music.

Rock legend Peter Frampton wrote all of Stillwater's songs with Cameron Crowe and his rocking wife Nancy Wilson. He also taught Billy Crudup to play guitar for his concert scenes.
