Plot – During the early '80s Arthur, a British journalist who works for a New York newspaper, is commissioned to write an article on Brian Slade, the legendary glam rock star who suddenly disappeared from the scenes at the height of his fame. As a teenager, Arthur was fond of Slade and with excitement the journalist tries to analyze the relationship between Brian and his wife Mandy. During an interview, she tells him about London in the middle of the Seventies, when rock music was spreading all around with its unbridled and narcissistic sound. Slade loved that exhibitionist atmosphere and wore flashy clothes, dyed hairstyles. He liked ambivalence and lack of restraint in sexual attitudes too. When they married, Slade went to America and became a close friend of Curt Wild, another rock star. When the interview is over, Arthur calls Curt Wild who invites him to a Tommy Stone concert. Arthur goes to the show and thinks Tommy looks just like Brian.
