Video Notes:
"Bands make it rock, but roadies make it roll! Meat Loaf stars in this rollicking (Variety)road film featuring incredible live performances by Alice Cooper, Blondie, Roy Orbison, Hank Williams, Jr., and Asleep at the Wheel! Down-home Texas boy Travis Redfish (Meat Loaf) falls hard for Lola, a glitter-spangled groupie determined to lose her virginity to Alice Cooper. Hoping to woo her, Travis signs on with a traveling rock band and soon finds himself celebrated as the greatest roadie of all time ! But Lola's date with destiny (and Cooper) looms. Can true love survive rock 'n roll?" A roadie and an aspiring groupie try to get Alice Cooper's attention in this rock 'n' roll comedy. Rock-star cameos please early-80s nostalgists; fans of loutish humor enjoy backstage hijinks. "One the strangest musical curiosities of the 1980s, Roadie stars Meat Loaf as a good ol' Texas boy who turns himself into the world's greatest roadie to win the heart of a teen-age groupie (Kaki Hunter). She, however, is obsessed with Alice Cooper, just one of the musical guest stars in this rock & roll road movie farce. Meat Loaf single-handedly saves concerts by Hank Williams Jr. and Roy Orbison (who duet on "The Eyes of Texas") and Blondie (who crank up "Ring of Fire") as well. Directed by Alan Rudolph, from a slapdash story he co-wrote with producer Zalman King (which surely qualifies as one of the most unlikely creative partnerships in film history), this high-energy cinematic jam is a raucous, disjointed goof. But only the comedy is played out of key. The music rocks." --Sean Axmaker.
