DO YOU WANT THE GIG, THEN?


Perhaps the classic scene of the 2001 movie “Rock Star” is when Chris Cole (played by Mark Wahlberg) auditions for the lead singer’s job in Steel Dragon (his lifelong favorite band) and nails it perfectly. “Well, mate…do you want the gig, then?”

Fast-forward to today, when Jon Belan of local favorites Gene the Werewolf recreates that moment.

I give the edge to Belan, because that’s really him singing. Wahlberg’s vocals are done by Miljenko Matijevic of Steelheart.
