A real music fans treat or why Cameron Crowe is so great
let me open this review by saying that music was always my greatest passion and music artists are some of my greatest heroes, that and of course movies and cinema. I was 16 years old when Crowe present me with the groundbreaking movie "Singles" that capture the grunge music generation with a one of a time soundtrack from bands like Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and many more... the movie was the right mixture of drama, music,comedy and romance that only a true music lover can make. and then came "Almost Famous" that kept the same delicate essence. This series is (for me) the 3rd part in Crowe's musical trilogy, a group of roadies works for a band in a city state tour, a real hard job that keep you out of a normal family life where the tour buses are your home and the actual family are your co-workers, the pay isn't much so why keep going? they all have one thing in common, their passion for music, the same passion that drove Crowe on an early age to become a traveling journalist for the Rolling Stones magazine (the "Almost Famous" movie story). so.. is that series any good - sure is!, if you loved Crowe's other movies this one is the right series for you, if you are a true music lover you will identify with the characters and your heart will fill with warmth every couple of minutes.
