Work Continues on 'Hair I Go Again' Documentary

The guys behind the Hair I Go Again documentary are making progress on their independent film. So far, the film features interviews with some of our Glam favorites including Steve Blaze, Jeff Pilson, Frankie Banali, Jaime St. James, Brian Vollmer, Beau Hill, Jason McMaster, Erik Turner, Robert Mason, Ron Keel, Paul Shortino and many others.

Next month, the filmmakers Kyle Kruger and Steve McClure will get some more interviews during the Monsters of Rock cruise.

Here's a little background on the film from the producers:

The year was 1985.  Thousands of miles away from the sonic debauchery of the Sunset Strip, a group of teenage friends shared aspirations of glam rock grandeur.  Rising from the ashes of countless garage jams and taking a page straight out of Hit Parader, a hungry, determined band was ultimately born.  Fame and fortune were well within reach, as they toured the skating rink circuit of West Central Florida, but fate intervened and the group unceremoniously imploded...probably over some chick.

In this humorous, yet shameless documentary, two longtime friends ultimately realize their mortality and decide to give “the dream” one last shot.  Gone are the long hair, leopard-skin spandex and all-night parties.  Only to be replaced, some twenty-five years later, by male-pattern baldness, XXL fashion and the mundane grind of 9-to-5.  Their mission:  reunite the band and appear as an opening act for their heavy metal idols.

Their journey will take them cross-country as they seek out (ok, stalk) their musical heroes with the hopes of hearing the words, “you’ve got the gig.”

Featuring candid interviews with some of the most influential musicians and industry professionals in the business.

Countless questions remain.  Will they find their long-lost band mates (particularly the bastards that still owe them money)?  Can any of them still hold a tune?  And who was that skank that broke up the band in the first place?

Failure might be their only option.

More immediately, Kruger and McClure will be on the 303 Pirate Radio Show on Monday, Feb. 6 at 8 p.m. Eastern. The radio show will feature call-ins by Share Ross of Vixen, Steve Blaze of Lillian Axe and Ron Keel of KEEL.

Here's the trailer:
