Mayor of the Sunset Strip
Time Out says
This is a much more sedate affair. It follows the sweet, unassuming Rodney through the ups and downs of a life on the fringes of fame. Like rock ’n’ roll’s answer to ‘Forrest Gump’, he’s always there, sleeping with Presley’s cast-offs or doing odd jobs for Sonny & Cher. Yet these brief brushes with the big time ultimately amount to nothing. As he’s edged towards the graveyard shift at his beloved radio station, it’s obvious that Rodney’s 15 minutes passed by many moons ago. Indeed, the way in which Bingenheimer desperately clings to the past make this a telling reflection of the destructive nature of fame and the emptiness of the American dream. It also proves that while they can party with the best of them, more often than not nice guys really do finish last.
