Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

For rock mu­sic in the early 1970s, the pos­si­bil­i­ties seemed end­less. The peo­ple who played it wore their hair long and their flares even longer as they belted out a loud, proud noise they thought would echo for­ever. Al­most Fa­mous, the film from US writer- di­rec­tor Cameron Crowe, lets us in on just how close they came to get­ting it right. As a teenage mu­sic jour­nal­ist about 30 years ago, sea­soned road- war­rior min­strels such as Led Zep­pelin and the Stones would take him on tour with them, and Crowe would chron­i­cle ev­ery high point and bum note. Al­most Fa­mous is a deeply per­sonal tale, set in the days when Crowe was mu­sic’s Macau­lay Culkin star­ring in his own ver­sion of On the Road Alone.
