From the 2001 movie Rock Star. Chris Cole's (Mark Wahlberg) rock and roll dreams come true after he is plucked from being the lead singer of a local Steel Dragon cover band to fronting the real Steel Dragon! Then the usual rock and roll problems come up and he quits.

Cole's singing voice was Jeff Scott Soto (Yngwie J. Malmsteen's lead singer) and/or Mike Matijevic (Steelheart vocalist). The rest of the band was mostly played by real musicians:

  • Rob the guitarist (Timothy Olyphant)
  • Donny the drummer (Blas Elias of Slaughter)
  • Xander Cummins the guitarist (Nick Catanese of Black Label Society)
  • Ricki the bassist (Brian Vander Ark of The Verve Pipe).
