||Synopsis: For over 20 years, Jimmy Testagross has lived his childhood dream: being a roadie for his childhood heroes, Blue Oyster Cult. But the band's Arena-Rock glory days are a distant memory. County fairs and club gigs pay the bills. And Jimmy has become a casualty of these leaner times. With no place to go, no job prospects, and no real skills outside of being a roadie, Jimmy needs to regroup. So he returns to his childhood home in Queens, Ny. There, he revisits old relationships: his ailing, widower mom, a high school crush, a former nemesis and, most importantly, his relationship with himself. Jimmy, the middle-aged man-child, has never grown up. He still carries the resentments and frustrations of his youth, and has allowed them to fester and define who and what he is. Confronted with his mother's illness, Jimmy has a choice: let go of the past and take responsibility for both himself and the woman who raised and now needs him. Or continue to live a life of lies and frustration. Written by Gerald Cuesta

Jimmy was a roadie for Blue Oyster Cult all his adult life who has -
painfully and wrongfully according to him - been fired by the band and
left by them somewhere in the wilds of Michigan. With nowhere else to
go, he makes his way back home to Queens where he has not been since
his father's death many, many years before. He has barely spoken with
his mother in the interim and now he overstates his role with the band
to her - manager, writer, producer, etc. He tries to collect himself to
deal with this massive setback, but he is not making the situation any
better with angry calls to the band's actual manager.
I think that roadie is one of the coolest jobs in the world next to
rock star and Jimmy does as well. I, too, would have major problems
dealing with his rude awakening after so many years and the loss of his
livelihood and dream.
Out for some butter for his Mom's famous tuna melts, Jimmy runs into a
high school classmate who is and was quite a butt-head who is now
married to Jimmy's first love, Nikki. Jimmy and Nikki wind up back in
his boyhood room which is untouched by time and looks like a "rock and
roll museum" according to Nikki.
Out of his vinyl record collection, Nikki pulls out Ratcity In Blue by,
local 70s favorites, the Good Rats and they listen to a couple of
tracks. This brings back memories of seeing the band every Saturday
night with their friend Steph - who passed away unbeknownst to Jimmy.
This movie is about real people, with lots of issues, who love music
and are dealing with some very real problems. If you enjoy music, have
been on the road with a band or thought about doing so (one of my
life's regrets is turning down an offer to be a roadie) you will really
like this movie.
Full disclosure - I also own this "original" album with the cool pizza
sleeve art, am a huge Good Rats fan and may have seen Steph, Nikki and
Jimmy at one of those Saturday night shows back in the day. My
heartfelt thanks go to Gerald and Michael Cuesta for a wonderful film
and soundtrack including these New York music legends and a great
version of Jackson Browne's Stay by Adam Duritz of the Counting Crows.
Did they misspell "Peppi" Marchello in the closing thanks to him?
