Almost Famous

This is an excerpt from the script of "Almost Famous", one of my favourite rock films!

71 EXT. SUN STADIUM - NIGHT 71

It's raining. The pre-show huddle breaks up, William a part
of them. Penny Lane adjusts Larry's look. She takes the scarf
from around his neck and ties it around his leg. He looks
instantly better. William watches in the darkness as Dick
takes the microphone. The best part of his day has arrived.
In his important voice:

DICK
Good evening Phoenix.
(applause)
From Troy, Michigan. Please welcome,
Stillwater.

Lights come up, as the band launches into "Fever Dog." Jeff
begins singing. Russell reaches to adjust the microphone for
a back-up vocal and is hit with something unexpected.

A sharp electrical shock.

It's just a slight pop in the loud din of music, but within a
moment something is clearly wrong. Russell holds onto the
microphone stand with a surprised look, conducting high-voltage
for two seconds and then he snaps his hand off the metal. His
face is white, he takes off his guitar and walks off-stage,
collapsing a couple steps later.

72 EXT. BACKSTAGE -- NIGHT 72

Dick is waving wildly for the band to board the bus, which has
been pulled up into the backstage area. He guides a sagging
Russell, assisted by Penny Lane, into the bus.

DICK
Get in, get in!!

William boards the bus, as the extremely agitated PROMOTER
arrives to confront Dick.

PROMOTER
Are you the manager of this band?

DICK
That, and more. Get in!

PROMOTER
You didn't even play a full set!

Dick whirls and unleashes an anger we've not yet seen, gesturing
with the silver briefcase that does not leave his hand.

DICK
Your shoddy stage set-up almost killed
our guitarist!

PROMOTER
You trashed the dressing room - you
didn't play your thirty-five minutes.
You didn't fulfill your contract -

DICK
Everybody in! Get in the bus!

PROMOTER
I'll report you to every promoter in
the country! I'm gonna talk to Frank
Barcelona!

DICK
YOU DON'T FUCK WITH MY BAND'S SAFETY!

PROMOTER
I hope you have a good lawyer.

DICK
I AM A LAWYER!

He swings into the bus, as the bus revs.

PROMOTER
LOCK THE GATE ON 'EM!
