They have been struggling and playing with each other for years but have never met with any real commercial success. One day, Tony's amp burns up and he goes to buy a new one at a guitar shop with a curious owner. Tony winds up with an amp that has a history behind it. From the amp, comes a ghost who promises Tony fame and immortality in return for a favor; namely getting rid of his band - forever. The ghost also promises Tony fame greater than his old rival from his student days, rock god Shinzo. Tony gets everything he ever dreamed of... But not exactly the way he planned...

A musicians movie for the tour bus.
27 January 2018 | by leepopapdxSee all my reviews

This is a classic movie. A Japanese twist on Robert Johnson at the crossroads. The music never disappoints here just pure on fire rock and roll. Manabe Takashi as Tony isn't acting he is rock and roll. Look for all the super cool vintage band gear lotta eye candy! I give a 9 for the good time you'll have watching this with your friends!
