Early '90s band The Heathens lived up to that name offstage as well as on it, partying hard and using drugs. Led by Johnny Rock, the group was on the brink of fame with the release of its first album. Then, the band broke up -- on the day of the album's release -- because lead guitarist Flash discovered Johnny in bed with his wife. "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll" picks up the story a quarter-century later when the drugs Johnny is using are of the prescription variety rather than cocaine and marijuana. He's out of work, money and options -- until young singer Gigi, who has a burning desire for fame, shows up with a stack of cash and an offer to get the band out of obscurity and back into the studio. The only catch is that she wants to be the lead singer, and Johnny must stay out of the spotlight as a songwriter.
