‘Hair I Go Again’…Two middle aged guys. One lifelong dream. Zero chance in hell (documentary trailer)

'Hair I Go Again', a new film documenting two friends who were once part of a band trying to hit it big back in 1985 and their attempt to reunite and try opening for their Heavy Metal idols on tour is slated for release early this year. Check out the three-and-a-half-minute trailer below.

Film synopsis: "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.'

"Countless questions remain. Will they find their long-lost bandmates (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."

Directed by Steve McClure credits include Starz Entertainment Group, E! Entertainment Television & Sony Pictures Entertainment. Steve also wrote and produced "The Michelangelo Story", a documentary distributed nationally by Service Merchandise.
