This movie is a must see, this is not just a film about an extraordinary man but about the epidemic that is crushing this countries health and judicial systems simontainously. This film has a serious message that I hope the public takes notice.
Wonderful & Honest
I remember the first time I saw Bob on 'Celebrity Rehab', I thought '"Who IS this dude?". Now I am enlightened.
But this documentary is so much more than about Bob Forrest and his life. It gets into the very real, and not discussed enough, go at recovery and sobriety for this wonderful community of talented artists.
These artists, these musicians shaped how the world saw and heard music.
Who is this Dude? Someone that cares and loves deeply for his comrades in arms. You gotta see this movie. It'll be worth it.
My teenage years were spent in the LA alternative scene watching Thelonious Monster, Fishbone, Jane's Addiction, and Red Hot Chili Peppers play some of the most amazing music ever created live. This documentary not only rekindled those feelings that I felt back then, but also gave me new perspective on the struggles behind the scenes. Bob Forrest is an amazing human being who gave up stardom to be of service to other human beings in need.
This is one of the best documentaries of it's kind, and I highly recommend it. Even to those who have no idea who Bob Forrest is.
