The movie.

I'm watching this On Demand. It was so incredibly horrible, but i still love the performances, and back in the day, i had a huge crush on Peter Frampton. Had all his albums and had a wall size poster of him. This probably seems blasphemous to Beatles lovers, but these performances were really good, and i even prefer some of them to the originals. The movie introduced to me to some songs i had overlooked. I forgot how good Earth Wind and Fire was, but you can't get rich when you have like 30 people in your band. Everyone looks so young. Steven Tyler without wrinkles. Peter Frampton had hair. Such great hair, too. All the BeeGees were still alive. And i can't talk about this flick without an honorable mention for Billy Preston. I really liked him back in the day. It's actually kind of hard to watch this movie today because it's so cheesy, but it still has a soft spot in my heart. It was the quintessential chick flick.

Sorry, Beatles, but i still love this soundtrack. No one under 50 and not female will like this. Hell, most of the people i knew hated it, but it's good to see it again.

Now i'm going to have to watch Tommy. :D

BTW, if you watch anything, watch the end. You'll see so many familiar faces singing. Think album cover on a bigger scale.

^^ In the late 70's, the Bee-Gees got a bunch of superstars and made a tribute movie to the Sgt. Pepper album..although from my memory, it has more tracks from Abbey Road than anything else. I saw in the theaters when I was 8. It's a monstrosity...but needless to say, the music is good. Featuring musical numbers by George Burns (Mr. Kite) and Steve Martin (Maxwell Edison).

And Billy preston. Don't forget Billy Preston. The man could move!

Do you remember the end with all those movie and music stars singing?

Steve Martin does Maxwell's Silver Hammer, as I recall. Terrible movie, not the worst soundtrack.

I remember this movie coming out but 70's me had zero interest in the Beatles, the Bee Gees or Peter Frampton so I never saw it.

He was in an episode of Blacksheep Squadron back in 1978. You and my sister enjoyed that episode on a different level than I did.

Back in the day, he was really hot. He was at the top of his game as a solo artist and he looked the part. It didn't hurt that Frampton Comes Alive was the top selling live album ever. It's since been unseated, but it's still a great album.

I remember that.
At the time I made little distinction between Frampton and Lief Garrett.


About a decade later I had a number of people at college tell me I looked like P.F. on the cover of Frampton Comes Alive. (mostly due to hair, which like his, soon fell out)

I figured they were just kinda fanservice. Like the Downton Abbey movie. Or Serenity.

This is not a "Beatles" movie. And the Beatles movies are fantastic...A Hard Days Night is truly profound (at this point on an anthropological level), HELP! is immortal, and Yellow Submarine is the most psychedelic movie ever made. Yeah...I don't count Magical Mystery Tour.

I only recently saw A Hard Days Night for the first time and it made me realize how truly honestly sexually aggressive the early Beatles were, in a very genuine and earnest way that Elvis and porn-rap artists never have been.

No movie made by any band comes anywhere close to Quadrophenia

I love serenity, because I'm a firefly fan (but don't call me a browncoat). I was served. Yes, the movie was just a long episode to give fans (a bit of) closure.

Fan service doesn't have to be a bad thing.

Not even The Wall? How about Head? I like Quadrophenia because I like the music, but I'm not certain what the point of it is beyond pre-goth mod self-infulgence.
