From The Back Of The Box
When four reckless rock and rollers set their sights on the top of the music biz, the stage is set for outrageous antics and electrifying tunes in HANGING ON A STAR. Teen heart-throb Lane Caudell leads his three mischievous music-makers for one crazy adventure to the next, accompanied by their gorgeous blonde manager, Deborah Raffin. Surviving a veritable slew of pitfalls-among them a motorcycle gang and a chopper pilot named "Crash"-the band soon discovers that while making it isn't all that easy, getting there is all the fun. So get in the mood for raucous laughs and rockin' sounds as four of Pop's funniest, freakiest henchmen take you on the wildest ride since A HARD DAY'S NIGHT-in HANGING ON A STAR!
