Disappointed to learn that Hotel California isn't actually in the phone book, radio producers Chris and Joe resolve to seek out the true spirit of rock and roll America. Roof down and stereo up, they drive coast to coast on a mission to `live the music'. They will sell their souls to the devil on the same crossroads as Robert Johnson, taste the loneliness of the `Wichita Lineman' (and the fried peanut butter sandwich that finished off The King), hang out with the spirit of Johnny Cash in his own front room and, sitting on a jetty by an alligator-infested lake, sing `Happy Birthday' to country-rock musician Gram Parsons. But first they must learn the ukulele, grow preposterous facial hair and fail to get into the Chateau Marmont with a rising popstar - and that's just day one.
It's a tale of friendship tested to the limit, great melodies, perfect lyrics and noble myths.
Chris Price has been shaping the popular music landscape for his entire career, as director of music for MTV and prior to that as an award-winning producer at Radio 1. Joe Harland is also an award-winning radio producer, having previously been a film critic and football commentator.
