"Not Fade Away"

Now one for the baby boomers.

David Chase, creator of The Sopranos, has made his feature debut as the writer/director of Not Fade Away, a coming-of-age story of a garage band trying to make it in New Jersey during the 1960s.
It's 1964. The Rolling Stones appear on television, and three best friends from the suburbs of New Jersey decide to form a rock band.
Like the film’s lead character, Douglas (John Magaro), Chase spent some of his youth as a drummer in an obscure New Jersey rock band, and his romance with the era’s music has never left him.

Chase cast Sopranos star James Gandolfini to portray the drummer’s exasperated father. Springsteen guitarist Steve Van Zandt, who played Silvio Dante in the TV series, serves as the movie’s meticulous music producer. And this movie, like the trailer that follows, is wall-to-wall 1960s music.
