Former Guns N Roses drummer Steven Adler and Poison drummer Rikki Rockett are featured in a new rock documentary called My Way. A witness to the power of passion and aspiration, the film chronicles the hugely entertaining path one woman takes to pursue her seemingly impossible dream. It will be available on DVD and video on demand (VOD) on November 4th.
Meet Rebekah Starr, a small-town girl stuck in a mid-western corporate life. Yearning to break free, she ditches her briefcase for a Les Paul guitar and hits the highway. Destination? Los Angeles’ famed rock ‘n’ roll Sunset Strip.
Although Rebekah’s marriage is failing, this is not some alternate fantasy life she’s escaping to–it’s her burning passion for music that can no longer be suppressed. On her journey, she serendipitously meets and befriends rock legends Steven Adler (Guns N’ Roses) and Rikki Rockett (Poison).
“Rebekah Starr is the perfect protagonist; she is a gutsy feminist and a talented musician. Audiences will be glad she made a bold statement by waking up one morning, and escaping her stagnant life!” the Independent Film Quarterly says.
The film has won five top awards in several film festivals and received a theatrical release in New York City and Los Angeles.
Bonus features include exclusive interviews with Adler, Rockett and Chip Z’Nuff of Enuff Z’Nuff, music videos and a theatrical trailer.
