Several members of the team that put together the highly successful That’ll Be the Day [1973] are associated with this much more elaborate and ambitious followup.

Singer-guitarist Jim Maclaine (David Essex), seen on the verge of maturity and foretasting fame and fortune at the end of Day, is followed here on his rapid rise and fall as the eventual star of a heterogeneous pop group, the Stray Cats, as it makes it first in the nabes, then in the UK, US and the world.

En route, pic details the loves, joys and tribulations, hardships and achievements, jealousies, superficialities and hypocrisies, as well as – and importantly – the damning effect of drugs, of the music scene glimpsed from the lowest beginnings to number one position in the global charts.
