This tortured rock musical tribute starts in a lofty hotel room occupied by a burnt out rock star absently watching TV. Then, TV, reality and his memories merge into a multi-media show that follows the artist from his early pain and abandonment from his father's death, his mother's smothering affection, his oppressive British schooling and increasing isolation. He fights against the soul-numbing forces with music and writing, achieving rock stardom, but finds that the wall inside him is growing. Sound familiar? Then shine on you crazy diamond. [WR]
