Rock and roll certainly isn't always pretty. The story of John Thor is a cautionary one for the aspiring rocker and so often reaches 'Spinal Tap' like moments. Whether by chance or poor management his career meld of heavy metal, bodybuilding and cheesy eighties films never really paid off but like the Energizer bunny he keeps ticking. Finale really pays off when the adoration truly touches the band. Keep on rockin.
