In order to be able to play their music for millions of people all around the world, artists like Alice Cooper, Metallica, KISS and Billy Joel have depended upon skilled musicians who play along with them but who aren't official members of the band. Why did these "hired guns" choose to stand in the background rather than the spotlight? What makes a good musician? And why do some artists succeed while others don't? HIRED GUN takes us backstage to meet the unsung heroes who keep the rock'n'roll machinery chugging along.
Fran Strine (USA) HIRED GUN is his feature-length documentary debut.
