Did You Know?


The album cover seen at Mr. Capricorn's favorite table in the Rainbow Bar and Grill is Rising, by the band Rainbow, released in 1976. The artwork of a fist gripping a rainbow was done by Ken Kelly, best known for designing album covers for the band KISS. It is widely reported that the band got the name Rainbow from the iconic Hollywood landmark featured prominently in this film. As of 2017, the only surviving members of the band that played on this record are guitarist Ritchie Blackmore (formerly of Deep Purple) and keyboardist Tony Carey; the late Ronnie James Dio and Jimmy Bain are actually buried not far away at the Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills cemetery. The other member of the band, Cozy Powell, died in a car crash in 1998. See more »

Not what i was expecting..
16 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

A young rock band, half of its members from England and half from the U.S., drops out of college and moves to the Sunset Strip to chase their dreams. American Satan was overall promoted as a horror film from various pages on fb and to be honest for sometime i thought it was but after finishing it the end result was a generic film about sex, drugs, mad teenagers against the world and alot of music. The humor was painful (especially the scene in the hotel room) and the overall acting was bad in lots of ways especially some of the cameos from the experienced actors like Malcolm McDowell, Bill Duke, Mark Boone Junior and the worst of them all was Drake Bell. Also the film was bland and boring and even confusing at times with it's messages and it's plot and an overall mess of a film. (0/10)
