Today a special tribute to the movie Almost Famous and its 20th anniversary (2000-2020) celebration. Along with my guest, friend and coworker Amit Mallel we talk about the meaning and relevance of the movie then and today. Including songs, fun facts and epic scene snippets from the film. We discuss our concerts together with anecdotes from artists, tours and the backstage. Penny Lane (Kate Hudson) stands for the ‘Groupie’ phenomenon or should I say ‘Bandaids’? From Lester Bangs (Philip Seymour Hoffman) we learn how to act around rockstars. Russell (Billy Crudup) from fictive band Stillwater teaches us the distinction between real and fake people around celebrities and their blown up egos and the risks that come along with fame and stardom. And William Miller (Patrick Fugit) shows us how to stay true, stay cool, be real and stick to what really matters in this industry: the music.
