"The greatest rock and roll film of all time. A crowning jewel!"-Gregory Weinkauf, The New Times

From The Beatles to Bowie to Courtney Love to Coldplay and beyond, Rodney Bingenheimer has been a cherished "Zelig-life" figure in rock for over 3 decades. As a teenage motivated by his passion for music and the allure of celebrity, Rodney first hit L.A.'s infamous Sunset Strip during its psychedelic heyday. There he partied with Elvis Presley, John Lennon, The Rolling Stones, Jim Morrison, Led Zeppelin, The Beach Boys - only to name a few - becoming the ultimate scenester and eventually creating a name for himself as a promoter, journalist, club owner and ultimately world-famous pop-impresario

Deemed "Mayor of the Sunset Strip" by legendary actor Sal Mineo, Bigenheimer is the man who has the ultimate backstage pass. This thrilling, emotional and unexpectedly touching story takes us on a "Forrest Gump"-like tour of Rodney's wild roller-coaster, rock-and-roll life as he discovers talent, breaks new bands and eventually spins records for America's flagship alternative radio station KROQ where, as "Rodney on the ROQ" he has become one of the world's most unusual and highly beloved DJs.
