In the 1980s, Los Angeles was the epicenter of a global hard rock music explosion. This area, home to world-famous clubs like the Whisky a Go Go, The Roxy Theater, and the Troubador, spawned dozens of legendary bands. But for every legendary hard rock band to come out of L.A. there were hundreds–or thousands–of bands who attempted to capture that same glory. Teenager Dee Jones was among them. In 1991, Dee leaves home to chase his dreams in Los Angeles. Dee quickly faces the reality of living on his own for the first time, the cold-heartedness of the music scene, and how people close to him face intimidation and challenges. This dramatic tale demonstrates the reckless bravery of youth and gives a snapshot of what the music industry was like. It’s a story shared by thousands who made a similar journey, and by anyone who has put everything they had into their dreams, rolled the dice, and took their chances.
