Summary

In 1973, 15-year-old William Miller's unabashed love of music and aspiration to become a rock journalist lands him an assignment from Rolling Stone magazine to interview and tour with the up-and-coming band Stillwater—fronted by lead guitar Russell Hammond, and lead singer Jeff Bebe William. A semi-autobiographical film based on director Cameron Crowe's time as a teenage writer for Rolling Stone.
