On a train, Keith and Mick chat about the blues and the Rolling Stones are born. Douglas and Joe chat in front of a New Jersey music store, and a band is born: as Douglas's sister tells us, it's one of many that don't make it. We follow Douglas from high school (1963-64), when he sees himself as a loser, into the band, playing drums and singing backup - then as the front man. There are tensions, a breakup, an audition in front of a major player, and decisions. Douglas pursues Grace, a country-club gal with hip sensibilities who believes in him. There's also his father, working class, wanting Douglas to apply himself as he watches his own life fill with regrets.

They suggest the Beatles were first played on American radio in Dec 1963, but in reality they were first played in early 1963 and the song was 'Please Please Me' , not 'I want to Hold Your Hand'. WLS in Chicago charted it for the weeks of March 8 and March 15, 1963. WLS was the first station in America to play the Beatles nearly a year before the outbreak of Beatlemania across the country.
