"A nameless young man is watching his dreams slip away when a man who let his own dreams die long ago sits down and begins to tell him a story: a story of young love and teenage dreams and rock and roll magic. A story about being young and being brave, and the girl who taught him how to be that way."

Jack Black's character wouldn't be out of place there. I think I need to go listen to some Metal.... Love the bike and the blurred background complements nicely.
