The comments about the rock n roll era being on its death bed and that Cameron Crowe arrived just in time for the death rattle is ludicrous. 1973 was the golden age of rock n roll as many styles of music were still considered cool.
The road trip scenes were pretty interesting and the presence of the groupies seemed like they were depicted fairly accurately. However, the pace of the movie just dragged and dragged with little of consequence that was in any degree memorable.
In general, this movie was not an all out disaster. However, it definitely missed its mark.
