Has anyone else seen this movie? It was made back in 1987 and it features Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Keith Richards, Little Richard, Roy Orbison, and Linda Ranstadt. I guess it was a tribute to Chuck Berry. I just caught the middle of it a little while ago when Bruce was talking about how he backed Chuck in a show one night. So for those who did see it, what were your thoughts?

Don't forget Keith richards, he was the leader of the band. I've seen this so many times and I loved it each one. The music is so great and the guests are fantastic (even Julian Lennon ). Chuck Berry is still the King of Rock n' Roll.

^Whoops. I thought I was missing a name somewhere. Fixed.

I thought it was pretty good, at least the bit that I had time to watch. Bruce made it pretty clear that he was very happy and excited to meet Chuck, let alone play on the same stage as him.

I saw it on TV a couple of times.

The best part is when he jams with Clapton. Clapton's solo is so wicked sweet in that song.

I figured some of our regular CR junkies would have seen this movie...and liked it to boot.

The Clapton solo was spine-tinglin' awesome.

I read an article about it a while ago. Appearantly, Chuck Berry can be a real ass. He didn't let anyone film him until he got a bag of cash each day.

^And according to the muscians who played with him(and documented in the movie), he gave back like $1000 dollars if the equipment worked and if the show went over well.

The must have left that part out of the article. I hate when they try to manipulate certain situations.

I've watched it about 3 times on one of my digital cable movie channels. I was thinkin about buying the new dvd.

Edit: the bag of cash story doesn't surprise me...Chuck Berry robbed a few banks in his younger days. Selfish bastard.

I like when Keith was talking about how during the show, Berry decided to change the entire key of song out of no where, classic.

Yes, but accordingly, this 'refund' he gave back came straight out of the money they paid him to perform that night/day. If I can quote him correctly(mind is a little fuzzy on the details), this is what Bruce said:

They'd pay him like $11,000 and at the end of the night, if the equipment worked and the show was great, he gave back like $1,000 of it.
