Almost Famous (2000) w/ Lily and Hannah from Society Owes Me a Gen-X Podcast

Lily and Hannah return as guests to talk about Cameron Crowe's 2000 Rock'n'Roll classic, Almost Famous. We dive into the early 70s, talking about everything from Alvin and the Chipmunks to Zepplin. With over 120 songs featured in this film, we cover a lot of ground, but we make sure to talk about the fictional band in the film, Stillwater (which is also a real band), which features Pearl Jam's Mike McCready and Peter Frampton. We talk about Cameron Crowe, both as a music journalist, and as a filmmaker. We talk about how this film relates to his other Rock'n'Roll film Singles, (which also has a strong Pearl Jam presence). From there, we wonder why Cameron Crowe's hot streak as a director ended with this film. 

Lily and Hannah helped kick off season 2 back in January where we covered Empire Records. New episodes of Society Owes Me a Gen-X Podcast drop on Fridays.
