    This film is justifiably celebratory and respectful, and it reaches out beyond the rock fanbase.

    Jesse Vile's film, despite its best intentions, is merely a serviceable extension of his own fandom.

The positive, energetic, humorous, and extremely talented musician who, unfortunately, got a paralyzing disease, called ALS, before reaching his prime as a guitarist. Even though, today, he's unable to be energetic, he's still humorous, extremely talented, and keeps a positive attitude. Much kudos for his caregivers and friends that keep him going. He is an inspiration to many, including myself. In the film, it's mentioned that he did a show in Jackson, MS. My dad saw them there at Town Creek Saloon. He says he remembers two guys (supposedly Jason and Marty Friedman) playing really fast leads, but it was difficult to hear the notes due to the way sound behaves indoors. Anyway, all guitarists need to check out this film. Full Review »
