It tells the story of Chris "Izzy" Cole, a tribute Rockstar (14) - The Mighty One singer who ascended to the position of lead vocalist of his favorite band, which was inspired by the real-life story of Tim "Ripper" Owenssinger in a Judas Priest tribute band who was chosen to replace singer Rob Halford when he left the band.
By day, Chris is a photocopier technician and by night, he is the lead singer of a Steel Dragon tribute band called Blood Pollution the name is taken from a Steel Dragon song. Internal struggles among the actual Steel Dragon band members culminate with the firing of their lead singer, Bobby Beers Jason Flemyngand the beginning of recruitment Rockstar (14) - The Mighty One to find a new vocalist.
Chris experiences his own strife with his Blood Pollution bandmates, particularly guitarist Rob Malcolm Timothy Rockstar (14) - The Mighty One . During a live performance, Rob's playing fails to live up to Chris' over-demanding standards regarding note-for-note accuracy to the original Steel Dragon recordings, and Chris sabotages Rob's amplifier mid-song — a fight breaks out between the two onstage.
The next day, Chris meets Blood Pollution at a rehearsal session, but he finds out that he has been replaced with his arch-rival, the now former lead singer of another Steel Dragon tribute band. Rob also cites Chris' inability to create his own musical style, preferring to remain the singer in a tribute band.
One day, Chris receives an unexpected phone call from Steel Dragon's founder and rhythm guitarist, Kirk Cuddy Dominic Westand is offered an audition for the band thanks to two of Blood Pollution's groupies, who showed Kirk a videotape of one of Blood Pollution's concerts. After hanging up on Kirk once, thinking he's being pranked by Rob, Chris ecstatically agrees.
At the studio, he meets the band and gives an outstanding performance of " We All Die Young " a Steel Dragon Skit 4 - Sido - Aggro Berlin in the movie, but it is actually a song by Steelheartwhose lead vocalist, Miljenko Matijevicprovides Cole's singing voice for the film.
Chris joins the band as their new singer, adopting the stage name "Izzy". Following a successful debut concert with Steel Dragon, Izzy must come to grips with the pressures of his new-found fame and success. The band embarks on a lengthy tour and Izzy experiences the excesses of the lifestyle, with Summertime - Art Blakey Quartet - A Jazz Message group's road manager, Mats Blue Eyes - Sandra De Sá - Sandra! Spallserving as a sympathetic mentor to Izzy.
His new lifestyle impacts his life both for better and worse, particularly with his relationship with his supportive girlfriend, Emily Poule Jennifer Anistonwhen she decides not to continue with him throughout the remainder of the tour as a rock star girlfriend, though Emily and Izzy agree to get back together when the tour reaches Please Warm My Weiner - Bo Carter - The Best Of Bo Carter Vol.1 1928-1940. Eventually, Steel Dragon stops in Seattle for a show, and Emily arrives at his hotel room as they had previously arranged, although Izzy had become so inebriated while on tour he forgot about the arrangement and did not even know what city he was in.
Although taken aback by all the groupies, Emily still tries to reconnect with him, reminding him of their plans to meet up once he got to Seattle, however he is too intoxicated to really understand what she is saying, eventually suggesting they go to Seattle together. Heartbroken with his inconsiderate behavior, intoxication and the fact that he is sleeping with so many groupies, Emily leaves him.
After the end of the tour, Izzy reports to the next series of Steel Dragon recording sessions with song concepts and artwork for the band's next album. The rest of the band rejects Izzy's ideas, with Kirk explaining that the band has to stay true to the "Steel Dragon thing" to fulfill fan expectations. Izzy is angered upon realizing that he was only recruited for his vocal abilities.
After a heartfelt conversation with Mats about how he feared he had no control over the direction life has taken him, Izzy begins to reconsider his rock star lifestyle. On the next tour, in a scene directly paralleling one near the beginning of the film with their roles reversed, Izzy hears a fan Myles Kennedy singing along with him toward the end of a live concert. Impressed, Izzy pulls the fan, who introduces himself as Thor, onstage and hands him the microphone to finish the concert.
Backstage, Izzy realizes that what he thought he wanted for Rockstar (14) - The Mighty One long was not what he wanted, and he says goodbye to Mats, departing from the band while doing so. Upon ditching his stage name, Izzy, Chris makes his way to Seattle and starts a new band with his old friend and former bandmate Rob.
At the same time Steel Dragon, failing to evolve to the changing tastes and styles of the s as glam metal was pushed aside for grunge Rockstar (14) - The Mighty One , has its fame Rockstar (14) - The Mighty One out. Chris finds Emily working in the coffee shop she and her roommate purchased a few years earlier, but is initially too ashamed to speak to her.
While walking one evening, Emily sees a flyer for his band posted on the wall and takes it down. In the final scene, Chris is singing with his band in a bar and Emily walks in. Chris leaves the stage and speaks to her. They reconcile, ending the film with a kiss and the final note of Chris' first original song "Colorful" which is actually a song by The Verve Pipe. During the credits, Cuddy talks about the future of the band and Beers is shown to have taken up Irish Dancing after his sacking from Steel Dragon.
Myles Kennedywho was at the time the lead vocalist of The Mayfield Four and now the frontman of Alter Bridge and Slash 's solo project, makes a cameo appearance. Kennedy is the only actor whose actual voice is used. Ralph Saenz Steel Panther also appears briefly, as the singer auditioning ahead of Chris at the studio. Warner Bros. Stockwell soon began researching the heavy metal music and tribute band scene and visited Owens' hometown of Akron, Ohio.
Wahlberg spent five months preparing for his role as Chris Cole, working with a vocal coach, growing his hair, attending the metal scene and wandering around Los Angeles in-character.
The film opened at No. When we heard about the production company were going to make a movie based, as far as we knew, about Ripper joining the band we offered our help. We said 'If there's anything Gian Costello - UnAnima Tra Le Mani want to know, talk to us at the time. It was entertaining, you know? It was fiction. Apart from the fact that 'Local Boy Makes Good'?
That was the only true aspect of the movie. I don't have the urge to watch it again. A small number of the songs featured in the film and on the soundtrack were released after the dates given in the film.
