The guys have a fever dog scratching at their back door this week with Cameron Crowe's 2000 powerful love letter to music, Almost Famous. The film follows an amazing ensemble cast around on tour with one of the better fictional bands of all time in Stillwater, with Oscar-nominated performances from Frances "Old McDonald" McDormand and Kate Hudson, but virtually every character in Almost Famous is memorably portrayed. The guys discuss how their allegiances and interpretations have shifted over time but the way the film remains just as poignant and important to this day. They also pick their own band to follow in the bygone decadent '70s as well as recall a time when an album particularly touched their hearts.
