Twenty-five years on the road and still rocking; nothing will stop The Majestics, 'Scotland's Kings of Rock', as they prepare for their silver jubilee tour - not even the sudden death of lead singer Jazza in a car crash.

Danny, failed painter and piano-bar star, hot-foots it home from New York for big brother Jazza's funeral, bumps into an old flame, and finds himself fired with rock 'n' roll fever, courtesy of Eddie Clockerty , the Majestics' uncool manager.

As the band - plus Danny - are thrust back onto the stage, personalities and egos clash in a spectacular fashion.
