The club’s owner, Dennis Dupree, and his right-hand gentleman, Lonny Barnett, arrange for Stacee Jaxx, a famous rock celebrity who recently announced he will probably split from his group, Arsenal, to perform with these individuals one last time for the Bourbon Room, hoping that the income will assist them with unpaid taxes which might be threatning the club. Upon learning of this particular, Patricia Whitman the non secular conservative wife of Mayor Mike Whitman, who wants revenge against Jaxx for sleeping having her in college and do not calling back, organizes her church to protest while watching Bourbon Room, planning to shut these individuals down (“Hit Me With all your Best Shot”). Meanwhile, Drew and Sherrie go to an used records store, where they both confess their dreams to become famous (“Juke Box Hero”/”I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll”). Drew decides to compose a song for Sherrie. They later have to start dating ? at the Hollywood sign, where they slowly fall in love (“Waiting to get a Girl Like You”).
At the night on the show, Jaxx’s manager, Paul Gill schedules a good interview between Jaxx in addition to Constance Sack, a reporter for Rolling Stone magazine ahead of the concert.
