As a popular Los Angeles disc jockey, Rodney Bingenheimer pushed new musical acts into the limelight--including the Sex Pistols, Blondie, and Nirvana--meanwhile living as the greatest groupie, befriending The Beatles, Elton John, Elvis, and the Doors. But in his documentary, director-writer Hickenlooper poignantly reveals how this man rose up from a lonely childhood to unexpectedly become the "get to know me" guy on the music scene, only to learn that life inside all of the glittering lights can be just as harsh and emotionally isolating as was his youth. Music industry cameos and interviews abound.
