Alan Rickman Replaces His Wand With Rock N Roll Legends In CBGC

In a beautiful twist of fate, I was gifted with a link this morning that made all my fan-girl dreams come true. The movie CBGB will combine two of my favorite things: Alan Rickman, and classic rock.

My musical tastes are a bit odd for a woman of my age, as my collection is predominantly filled with classic rock. I feel that new music pales in comparison to the sound of old. Not all of it, there are certainly some bands out there that have stayed true to the sound, but for the most part, it’s just not my style. 

Now, any classic rocker worth their salt has heard of CBGB; the legendary NYC club that launched the careers of so many icons, it should probably be in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.  Some of the bands that got their start at CBGB (Country Bluegrass Blues) include The Ramones, The B-52’s, Blondie, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, The Patti Smith Group, The Talking Heads, and The Police. That is some serious star-power.

 

In the film, the brilliant Alan Rickman will take on the role of the club’s founder, Hilly Crystal. A gruff man who knew what he wanted, and made it happen. Not unlike Rickman’s most famous character, Professor Severus Snape!

The supporting cast is impressive as well, boasting such big names as Ashley Green, Justin Bartha, Maliln Akerman, Johnny Galecki, and Bradley Whitford, just to name a few. It will also be the first time we see Rickman alongside Rupert Grint, who will be playing guitarist Cheetah Chrome, since they battled with and against bespectacled boy-wizard Harry Potter.

As if that weren’t enough, the trailer ends with this simple tagline: “50,000 bands and 1 disgusting bathroom.” If that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

CBGB is set for limited release on October 11 in the US.
